I need to take a break from work to refocus. I just went through a rather frustrating meeting and I need a little bit of breathing room before I go into the next meeting. Let me just echo a complaint that I have made other times in this space - poor leadership is a horrible thing to find yourself stuck under. The answer is simple - leaders must lead, they must be clear, they must be decisive, they must take ownership. When they don’t, the entire project will stumble. From a management standpoint - when a project stumbles, the correct action to take is to immediately remove the highest leader, then promote the next one down. It’s ruthless, but it works. I am currently stuck under leadership (on this project) that has no inclination to pay attention to details. It is immensely frustrating. I can feel myself eating the stress right now, so what I am going to do is take ten minutes and meditate and see if it will help me get through the morning. Today is shaping up to be a very stressful day and I need to intervene to get it reset. So, on that note, off to meditate.
