"I swear this long winded series of posts chronicling my attempts to get a promotion will end soon haha.   So a new development, a temporary Assistant Grocery Manager position officially got posted at work (because the current assistant is out…"

"I guess what I might ask is do you have a true raison d'être for the support you offer, and are your parents appreciative at all, or is this a purely tit-for-tat thing due to the fact that they provided you utilitarian support as a child?"

"And a wrench is thrown into the mix!  Corporate has done the one thing that corporate seems to do very well at, and has transferred a majority of store directors to different stores (including my own) that means tomorrow is the last day that my…"

Joshua replied to Joshua's discussion to apply or not to apply?
"Thanks, it is true that either way me and my brother will be winning.  I asked my grocery manager about the situation and he told me that the store director asked him if he wanted my brother as the evening manager or me as his assistant manager…"

Sir replied to Joshua's discussion Feeling a bit bogged down
"I hadn't heard of this before, and I'm trying to figure the point. I'd guess the idea is to find ways to make things on the list more efficient?  Do fewer of them?  "

"+100 on this. Exactly like setting a budget, you need to get real about where you expend your time and energy (not where you think you do, or wish you did, but actually do).  Then you can figure out strategies to work through it. "

John Muir replied to Joshua's discussion Feeling a bit bogged down
"Before you can manage you have to measure. Write down all the tasks you do around the house each week Then put an ACCURATE time spent next to each one. Figure out the ones that total up to 80% of the total time spent, and post the list."

"I tend to think of it as a three strikes rule. Can't do it infinitely, and pre-banned users are on a shorter leash. At any rate, we've made too many exceptions in the past to be hard-asses about it now. "
