Broken policies

 Working for a big corporation, I have my fair share of suffering global policies.

The issue is that the command-and-control line is long broken. We are surrounded by "yes" people and by people following orders.

This is how wars are started and conflicts break out. Because the people from the bottom will ultimately pay the price.

 

Today my laptop stop working and the screen was blank, why?

Because someone decided it is a good policy for your screen to go to sleep after 1 minute of inactivity. Is this right? Do we really need to click and do something every second just to fulfil some CEO wrong ambition for "productivity"?

This is one example why big corporations don't necessary play well and compete well with others. Because instead on relying on the talant, they rely on broken policies.

The messy meeting

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

The recovery day

 What to do once all the presents are opened? Should we just move forward with our goals? As I wrote about recovery day after flying long distance. It is important to plan a recovery day after the holidays. This is your guilty free time.

New year preparations
