I had this thought in the shower this morning, and it was the first time in a long time that i felt compelled to write something here at Insight Writer.
This past weekend was wonderful. Even as a three day weekend goes it was one of the better ones. I got to spend most of it with a young lady I love dearly. We had the greatest of times!
Then I got back to work and got sick with something nasty. On top of being sick just about everything that could go wrong at work did. The week ended with our office manager sending out a mass email saying how frustrated she was with our work and how we needed to get it together so she doesn’t have to fix all of our mistakes.
A co-worked responded in a mass email stating that the email was unprofessional and that the office manager needed to understand what it’s like to be in the field without the resources to do their job. They ended the email by saying that they were unhappy to say that they no longer wanted to work for the company and then promptly quit. I would consider the person that quit one of our better long term employees.
Besides being completely drained from being sick and coming home and collapsing in my bed from exhaustion after work everyday I had to find the energy to deal with all these work issues. As I am one of the main managers for the company.
Somehow I made it through and all I can say is that I made it by gritting my teeth and bearing it.
Sometimes my friends that is the only path we can take. Straight through the middle of the gauntlet.
The older I get the more I realize that the only person who truly fails is the person who does not get up and try again. Sure, there are some impossible things in this life, but the only way to really suck the marrow from life is to try, try again.
So in the end I will say again… when all else fails… don’t you….
“There is no failure except in no longer trying.” -Elbert Hubbard
