I’ve been getting the sense that a lot of people are running ragged these days.
Based on my extremely informal interviews (i.e. normal conversations), it’s not just me, and it’s definitely not just people in my organization. Maybe it’s a St. Paul, Minnesota thing. Or maybe it has to do with the job market, changes in unemployment benefits, or the health care debate.
I don’t know what it is, but I’ve about had it. I want to fill my office with balloons this week, or have a joke share, or collect favorite moments of the day and post them in the office. Why has it been so hard to see the million alternatives to just trudging along?
How are you doing this autumn?
