In today’s world with social media constantly knocking at our door, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to buckle down each day and accomplish what we need to accomplish.
One day at work, I asked my boss what I thought was an innocent question, “Hey, what time does the meeting start?” My boss replied, “DIDN’T you read the memo?” Yes, in fact I had. I had read all 7 memos sent that day, and each had a different time for when the meeting started — each made sure to bury those times in an endless mass of text. What could have been a 5-second informative response turned into 5-second condescending passive-aggressive non-answer.
We all feel overwhelmed trying hard to finish our daily workload, don’t we? It seems impossible to have enough time in the day to get everything done no matter how diligent we are at doing our work, especially when our inbox is always full.
