So I didn’t blog as much as I would’ve liked this past week. I’ve been busy with work stuff and the upcoming move! I can’t believe that this time next week, I’ll be back in Vegas for much of the foreseeable future. It’s a weird feeling honestly. I’m super stoked of course, but part of me will always love the California sun. That and the weather here was been AMAZING and Vegas is amping up to the 90s currently. But I digress! Here’s what I’m up to this week, and I plan on having a progress report ready next Saturday!
- Tidy up design with client
- Get started on a bunch of newly assigned articles from a PHENOMENAL new client (so stoked!)
- 1st draft of my awesome super secret new company
- 10k steps a day!
- Finish packing
- Prep clothing donation box
- Find a place to live!
- Blog at least 3 times
- Enjoy life
Welp, that’s all for me this week. I’m very excited for all that’s to come. I hope everyone has a super awesome/productive week! 🙂
Here’s an article I found on Harvard Business Review that is helpful for anyone who has encountered a boss that micromanages. I myself have struggled with this in the past. I hated getting ready to go to work because of the dread of dealing with said boss. The incessant emails/texts at all hours. The expectation to work whenever I was awake. It was incredibly daunting. For a while I thought that is was just me, but as it turned out, that person managed everyone that way; which says a lot about them and not their subordinates.
Since I realized that it wasn’t my performance that was the issue and my coworkers and I knew we couldn’t change it, we decided to have a little fun with our situation. My co-workers and I starting making daily $5 bets on how many emails our boss would send us. I’m proud to say I won quite a bit and I took my winnings in the form of a caramel macchiato :-).
Have you ever had the “pleasure” of dealing with a boss who micromanages? How did you cope/survive?
