  • How much time are you spending on e-mail?
    Sunday, January 12, 2020 12:33 AM
    Someone sent me an e-mail (which, as you read this story, is amazingly ironic) that I thought worth passing along as we roll into the New Year. So much of our time at work ends up being wasted, and it’s hard to think of too many things that waste more of our time right now than frivolous use of e-mails and the Internet. So without further ado . . .
    An unemployed man is desperate to support his family of a wife and three kids. He applies for a janitor's job at a large firm and easily passes an aptitude test.

    In about a week our nation will celebrate Memorial Day. Here in Indiana we’ll get fired up for the Greatest Spectacle in Motor Racing. Some families will go to the cemetery and honor loved ones.
    It’s a wonderful holiday and I hope you get to enjoy it.
    So let’s use the “memorial” portion of the holiday to talk a little bit about a common mistake managers, especially new ones, make.
    They don’t remember those who came before.
    I’m reminded of the old – and less than positive saying that someone wakes up on third base and thinks they hit a triple.
    Chances are new managers are not the second coming. They may be good. Heck, they may be great. But chances are that there were good – and great – managers before.
    We’ve all seen it, right? The new manager points out all the improvements and fixes they’ve made. This can be dangerous. Many a youngster has thrown their arms out of socket patting themselves on the back to a degree that they missed work (HIPPA regulations prevent me from sharing names).
