I don’t Understand

by on Mar.10, 2011, under Uncategorized

I HATE doing documentation. Of Any sort. It can be simply writing up notes from a work call, it can be writing notes from a meeting (work or personal life) or it can be a full fledged report that I owe after working with a customer for a full week. Even though I know that the customer spent a ton of money to have me there for a week, and that they expect to receive a summary report of that time.. I HATE writing that summary report. No explicable reason, I just hate it. I’ll procrastinate for weeks, sometimes months on getting it done. It’s not that it’s hard, I just hate it with a passion that borders on insanity. If I spent 1/10th of the amount of effort writing it as I did hating it, I would be amazing at it and able to finish it within an hour.. but instead, it sits on my to-do list like a tumor, until finally, I have to do something about it or I can’t get anything else done.
Wish I understood why.

If you ask for a resource… allow it to help!

by on Mar.04, 2011, under Uncategorized

I was asked to assist on a con-call responding to a customer/partner concern. I said I would be happy to help, and was then placed in a con-call with all of the parties.
At this point, the person who asked me to participate proceeded to talk non-stop for the entire call.. I don’t believe he breathed, just talked non-stop. The one time he paused to let me speak, I said the first two words, and then he proceeded to talk over me immediately, and thereby not only spoke incorrectly a bunch of times, but wasted me time.
So.. a note to all.. If you want a resource, USE them as a resource, don’t waste their time!
