Did you ever get the feeling...

The world is just a little crazy and going downhill. My current boss is on my buttocks non-stop. Micromanaging like there is no tomorrow. I can't even effectively isolate my troops from it.

It is making me just a little cranky and driving me nuts.

Suggestions?

Make a list of things that are stressing you out.

Go through the list and identify the things that you are able to exude some control over.

Take those and devise action plans.

The rest, beyond your control, cross off.

Concentrate on the ones you can affect and have devised plans for.

Helps to make the chaos a bit smaller and even more so to gain some focus.

Hang in there bro :thumbsup:

There are ways to screw with the supervisors back. I'm hard headed so I tend to take that approach. However, TBOs advice was solid. Sometimes you just need to bite your tounge and roll on.

Oh gee thanks. :wow:

Seriously, deal with what you have control over. Pass up the chain what you don't. Delegate what you can.

TBO is spot on.

Those above you have either their agendas or manhood/position to always keep proving. Just keep doing an excellent job, being liked by your troops and the rest will follow. Oh, keeping as quiet as possible too.

As a friend says, "NEVER WORRY, if things can be solved by you, then make a plan to solve them, no reason to worry; if things cannot be solved by you, then why the hell do you worry?"

I think TBO is spot on with this one. After all, what else can one do. Of course, praying can help with the stress of it too.

Definitely not what I personally recommend, however, sometimes.... :supergrin:

I caught some flack from one of my bosses the other day. I guess we can't always agree on certain things. In the end we made friends again though.

I have to admit, I was pretty cranky over it. My guys caught some of the after effects. My wife caught the rest.

Sometimes you just need to let it out.
