My Monkey Mind Chimes In
I was very cranky when I woke up this morning. I slept well enough, but my monkey mind was spinning about work almost immediately upon waking. It got a pretty solid grip and me and just did not want to let go, complaining about all of the small injustices and incompetences that have plagued us for the last several years, then layering on top of it the general sense of pointlessness that has been a hallmark of that time as well.
For me, the last several years truly emphasize the importance of good senior leadership. We’ve been like a rudderless ship without it. We’re supposed to be notified of our reorganization sometime this month. I hope it is sooner rather then later and I hope it is in a good direction. I am not sure how much longer I am willing or able to endure the incompetence. Today was a very rough day in that aspect. As I drove in my brain kept repeatedly telling me “Don’t do it! Turn around! Go home! Don’t make that turn! Drive right on by! Don’t open the door! Turn around and walk out.” It was a pretty constant chatter until I reached my seat.
The chatter has let up a little, but it was rough on that commute. We’ll see how the day goes. Hopefully, it will shape up and I’ll be able to pull something productive out of the day. Then again, maybe it will be a wasted day. (That was my monkey mind, chiming in with it’s two cents right there.)
