I felt really bad yesterday.
I yelled at someone, and I mean yelled.
And let me just say, it takes a lot to have me yell at you.
There have been talks, and there have been unthreatening correcting behavior comments as things arise. But this one took the cake and I in no uncertain terms said get on board with this tax season NOW.
Later I sincerely apologized, not for what I said (thank God I didn’t cuss at the person) but for my delivery.
I got back from lunch and had a note and small gift on my desk, and all is well for the moment.
And we got a lot done yesterday.
I also apologized to my boss who was witness of my spectacular delivery, to which he replied (a) it was fun to watch and (b) you were right.
It still didn’t make me feel better and I hope to not do that again for a very, very long time!
My reaction wasn’t due to tax season and being tired.
My reaction was due to my work ethics and the works ethics I believe others should have.
Unfortunately I probably looked something like this, and I must say, that is not very becoming.
Ok, back to focusing on why I do the things I do and what I hope to gain…..after all, I can only control myself.
