Process issues

17 05 2007

So, before you leave a job, especially one where you were responsible for a large amount of work, it’s reasonable to assume that you have to delegate all that work to someone else upon your departure.

There’s a process to handling these things. However, people who give notice usually have a timeframe. The last few weeks that they are still working for that company. Usually, this may not be the best time to roll out a new process. Cancel all the upcoming delegations to wait for approval on the new process. Approval might not happen till the last week. So, instead of enjoying a nice relaxing last week — reminiscent of your first week — you’re crazy stressed.

So how was your…

7 05 2007

When someone asks whether or not you had a good day…you have to wonder what they meant by it. I wonder as well, but thinking critically, only if you’d live it again, just as you already have, was it a good day.

Truth be know, I had a great weekend…and I’d gladly relive it.
