One of my biggest frustrations at work is that people want me to be frustrated. The issue is that people equate my calmness with un-productivity. I have just learned to channel my energy in a more productive way. And, for some reason, I have been able to take any difficult situation and use the energy to fix it, rather than become frenetic.
So, we're opening a new store. It isn't the first time. It won't be the last. But for some reason, the people who should be acting calm are not. Sometimes, I just want to slap all of them. I've been very vocal about it. And today, for the first time ever, I decided to make a political chess move.
I hate that I had to. But it had to be done. So, we'll see how that works out. But until then, I have some training to plan and execute. Call me when you get over yourselves and decide to help. Later.
