For some reason, some people just love to ante up the drama in the workplace. And somehow, folks like to involve me in. Thanks, universe. Thanks.
I like to think of things in this way: A typical work week, Monday through Friday, 8 hours a day plus an hour per day for lunch equals up to 45 hours a week. Yeah, I know we spend a whole lot more in the office, just play pretend with me for a while. If you’re lucky, which I’m not, you might get 7 hours a night of sleep. So, a 24 hour day becomes 17 hours of being awale. 9 hours of the 17 hours you are at work. And we haven’t even considered travel time to and from the office. And the reality is that many of us spend more than 8 hours a day in the field getting business done.
In short, what I’m trying to say is that you see your work family more than your own family. Think about that.
When you see your coworkers more than your spouses, children, pets, etc., wouldn't you want your work environment to be more comfortable? I know I do. You don't have to like everyone, but you should be able to be cordial and able to work with others to achieve the missions of your organization.
So why have drama? I don’t get it.
Can someone explain it to me?
