The one coffee a day attempt REALLY hit me today with a horrible one-sided verging-on-migrane-headache. I just knew coffee would take the edge off, but given withdrawl is the likely source of the headache, thought it best not to get trapped in some sort of vicious cycle thing and took iboprofen instead.
The iboprofen took the edge off slightly, but I thought it better not to take a short run. I am bitterly regretting this decision because now I am completely full of grump and unreasonable grar.
I think my head is still spinning from spending yesterday in an all day strategic initiatives mid-year review with senior management. Afterward I wondered how as an organisation we actually achieve anything, so disorganised were they.
We lower orders who were permitted to attend all came out kind of dazed because while we had carefully prepared detailed updates on the initiatives we’d been assigned, this was in stark contrast to our betters. Three of them spent at least half an hour trying to unravel what the initiative assigned to them was intended to achieve or in many cases what the initiative even meant. This was mainly because they were so very badly described in the document – very badly described by them. So, no progress in the eight months then? This was repeated for a couple of hours. Maddening!
We’ve an SML-wide staff satisfaction survey being conducted this week. I’m going to make a bold and out there prediction that the results for the questions regarding the effectiveness and performance of the senior management team are going to be overwhelmingly negative.
