Best decision ever! I highly recommend hiring an organizer then a regular cleaning person for as often as you can afford. The stress relief is priceless!REPORT ABUSESeptember 19, 2013 at 12:03 am in reply to: Paralyzed for words in priority situations at work #121926

The idea of a customer complaint tree/internal checklist is one i know about but I don’t have one. I will work on developing one and adding that into my bag of survival tricks. In general Planning ahead with lists etc. helps me stay on track and developing personal auto responses like you mentioned makes perfect sense.
Managing anger is something I can struggle with from time to time but I think I do an ok job stuffing anger and appearing nice. Also I have learned to teach my employees that if I am short/direct in an interaction with them i likely have 6 fires burning and i need to stay focused on top priorities. Teachinig people to understand how i intract when i am being direct instead of having them think I am mad is vital for me.
Thanks so much for your suggestion and taking the time to help!REPORT ABUSESeptember 18, 2013 at 11:47 pm in reply to: Paralyzed for words in priority situations at work #121925

Love your reply. We use many of the same tools ie: super nice while…whatever in my mind, take notes, passing info on to higher ranking staff if possible.
In this situation after a short time I felt there was no calming this person down no matter what I said. After recognizing that when I heard her call my staff member stupid I wanted to find the correct words to defend my staff and ask her to leave, but my anger superseded my ability to secure a calm demeanor with a non angry words/tone to ask the customer to not disrespect my staff and kindly exit the premises.
I truly appreciate your help and that you took the time to respond! Thanks.

Not sure I like focalin. I wonder if it’s just lacking the “side effects” is throwing me off. Having been on methylphenidate for so many years it’s a significant shift.REPORT ABUSEApril 25, 2013 at 3:48 am in reply to: Meds considering switch from gen ritalin to focalin xr #120160

Interesting to read this post. I have been lethargic/paralized at home for longer than I care to admit, but I was diagnosed over 15 years ago (my Grams a Dr. of education told me for years I was ADD). I have consistently inconsistent work hours. 1 day I work at 7a.m. the next I work at noon, then the next week I may work a 1:30-10…I never know. When I was younger I could NOT sleep with the television on as it would keep my mind wandering. In the past few years I have found that I keep the TV on as I attempt to sleep I guess to keep my mind on the TV instead of drifting /rambling. I set the sleep timer and ALWAYS right before it goes to shut off I wake up (there must be some shift that awakens me). ANYWAY it is nice to be able to consider the fact that my sleep inconsistencies are creating my lethargy…that I will take strides to work on ie: turn the damn TV off and or try to create a regular sleep schedule regardless of work sched. (that may affect performance but it is thier falt lol).
Thanks for the posts and letting me talk through my issue.REPORT ABUSE
