Back to Business as Usual …

I don’t take anything for granted … I find that if I do … I waste time. Time that something could be done … have been done during the period I’ve waited … if only I had known.
That’s why following-up behind something is important. Don’t go on to forget something … just because someone says ‘if you don’t hear from me … you can know it’s been taken care of.’ No … don’t trust that at all … because 9 out of 10 times when you … assume … all is okay, go to the next step … you are stopped in your tracks by that very someone who said, “if you haven’t heard from me, know all is taken care of.” Be damned … you have to begin all over again.
See, they can say they’ve been too busy, or was waiting for this or for that. What can you do? You sit there like a dumbass … knowing you should have known better. There’s nothing to do but, go on and do what you should have done in the beginning. Don’t count on someone else … follow up, don’t let time be wasted.
I am going to begin following up on things beginning this coming week. The holidays will be over … it’s time to get down to business. I am not letting more time go by to get the important things I want done … done. I knew during holidays … nothing is going to be done. Why? No one is going to seriously work when their mind is on their holidays with loved ones. I don’t blame them.
When I worked … I still got my job done no matter what, and when someone counted on me … I didn’t let them down. Not everyone is like me … I am the exception. I’m also, a perfectionist when it comes to doing something I am responsible for getting done. Even if I don’t want to do it I am going to do it to the best of my ability … and then, just a little more.
I will be glad when Monday gets here. People will go back to work … and everyone will get back to business as usual.

We all have things we want done. We have to keep up and make sure progress is happening. You know how it is when someone doesn’t do their part. I’m going to do my part to make things happen. Don’t rely on someone else totally. Follow up. Photos/story owned, written by me … Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee.
