You betta work!
Work has been a roller coaster lately.
I recently wrote about my conversation with my boss' new boss and the additional clients he wanted me to take on. Then, just 2 days later, my boss calls me and explains how he wants me to implement streamlining initiative I designed a year ago so I can take on some of the non-sales tasks from my colleagues.
As diplomatically as possible I explained to him that I was unclear about the opposing directions I'd been given. He basically told me to forget what my boss's new boss had said and to go with what he was saying now. I guess they hadn't considered that giving me opposing directions might make them both look a little dumb.
So I dusted off my procedures, made some updates, went over them with my colleagues, and implemented them the next day. I'm still getting the hang of this but I believe it will get easier as I do more of it.
I'm having more difficulty blogging now, since I don't have the freedom to be able to jot down ideas for posts when they come to me. I'm also dreadfully behind in my blog reading, and I miss it. Its made me wonder if I am following too many blogs. I have to be realistic.
