You're Going To Have To Calm Down

Work has become an exercise in not losing my temper. More and more, as each person does their own thing, and this becomes less about operating as a team, I pick up more of everyone else’s “not my job” stuff.

It’s not so much about people stepping up to the plate. It’s about assuming that I will cover all of the plates, shortstop, and the outfield.

Here’s what I do to stay sane:

I use my paper calendar as a diary of what I managed to accomplish, no matter how small.
I drink water.
I keep in touch with the district trainer, who just joined the district and is already sane.

There has to be more I can do, but this is trial and error on what works.
