Are We Under Cyber Attack?

First the FCC announced they plan to vote on ending internet freedom, now everything tech is malfunctioning.

Our site keeps delivering 500 errors.

My computer won’t let me write to our servers.

Our phone systems are glitchy.

And now McDonalds tablets are acting up.

Coincidence?

Maybe…

How well do you understand your job?

You understand a concept.

You’ve tested it.

The theory makes sense.

You understand the process.

You have the right tools.

You know the steps.

Your method is foolproof.

But ask yourself…

Can you teach this method to somebody else?

How well do you really know your job?

Can you teach someone your process and expect them to deliver the same results you do?

Maybe.

But probably not.

Or, maybe you’re scared of teaching them.

Scared to teach someone how to do your job.

Scared that teaching them to do your job will lead to you not having a job.

Think about it…

Sometimes you need help doing a task.

You know that extra hand can help you be more productive.

But you don’t do it.

You make up excuses.

You make an excuse about not having excuses.

And then you say, I can do it on my own.

How well do you really understand your job?

*Re-reads job description*

Oh nevermind, that task is not in my job description.

(another excuse)

Too Busy to Do Anything

Ever been so busy that nothing seems to get done?

Feeling like that right now on my Uber ride.

Tired

Exhausted

Mentally…but not so much physically.

The belly grows

The numbers show production, but nothing is getting done.

You start dabbling in this

You start dabbling in that

And at the end of the day, nothing gets done.
