Well, it's one of those weeks again. A week where it's raining projects and you have 4 team members that are either a) on holiday b) on sick leave or c) in training
A week where you look at your watch and realise it's 6PM already and think "where has the day gone?"
But then you let out a sigh of relief because now, you can actually finally start getting some uninterrupted work done!
A week where you don't even think of a thing called timesheets, because spending 5 minutes filling them out means 5 minutes taken away from an already maxed out day.
But it's all good. I know that in a couple of weeks, it'll go back to being semi-normal. Plus, I've gotten good at not letting hectic weeks affect me anymore...No more stressing out about deadlines (as much as this is humanely possible. A little bit of stress is good to get everyone out of procrastination mode).
When I started work a few years ago, whenever I'd get worked up and stressed out, one of my very wise ex-bosses used to tell me something I'll always remember: no one is bleeding, no one is dying, you are not saving lives, so keep things in perspective.
Obviously, if you are a doctor and you are reading this, please note that this does not apply to you!
