It's been a tough time at work. There are lots of things to complain about, all of which our fearless leader knows just as well as the people working with her.
We have limited resources and big to-do lists. We have no natural light. We're in a temporary and open plan office and frequently are asked to move desks or share office space. The air conditioning is either paralyzingly cold or stuffily hot. The technology systems limit flexible work arrangements. Things are changing so much that the targets are constantly moving.
My first thought on getting home this evening naturally was: "Ugh. I do not want to go back there tomorrow.". I complained out loud to myself about a situation that feels like it makes good work challenging, too much like work and not enough like productivity.
Does that sound familiar?
