Lord of the Dish Pit Posted October 25, 2018 Share Posted October 25, 2018 3 hours ago, TaleSpinner said: Oct 25: How plan/schedule oriented are you? Not as much as I used to be. There was a time when each plan was a lovingly constructed thing of timetables and contingancy plans, a heist level of planning applied to pretty much any event. Unfortunately these never survived any contact whatsoever with the people around me, and the ones that didn't involve anyone else got completely derailed by things I'd made no contingancies for. It got to the point it seemed as if the very act of planning doomed the plot to failure as the gods took it as a personal challenge to derail it. So now I plan very little and keep other people as far from said plans as is possible, because what is often labelled as "spontaineity" by those around me is what I consider unreliability. (If the plan is to meet at 3pm, then be there at 3pm, not 4pm or 4:45pm, 3pm! I don't care is you saw a squirrel or shiny object, the table we reserved is now gone and I don't want to hear about how I "ruined your evening" by not getting a table when we would have had one if you'd ever heard of a thing called punctuality!) As to scheduling all I ask is that my work hours not be flopped about like a landed fish every other week. Unfortunately this is too much to ask in today's world where no one seems to understand that constant sleep deprivation and life upheaval do not make for a "positive" employee. (and our society's obsession with ramming "positivity" down everyone's throat is fuel for a rant all it's own.) 6 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
