Don’t be a megaphone!

This applies to most people unfortunately. If this doesn’t apply to you, I personally applaud you and thank you for your logical service to society.

In a whirlwind of bullshit at one of our offices today I have an employee run up to me and say “Hey, we have a problem”… He states the problem which obviously cannot be shared with all of you, but the problem is small in the big scheme of things. Literally, the problem equates to somewhere in the neighborhood of a fraction of a percent.

So, I of course ask the logical questions of… 1. are we required to take part in this? 2. what is this needed for? 3. have you asked anyone else about this to see if it is actually needed?

As I ask these questions, I get blank stare in return. To all of them.

I say this as a business owner, problem solver, and more so than that, a logical person who doesn’t like bullshit.

Please make it a point when seeing a problem and complaining about it, to actually have a solution to the problem when you are bringing it up to someone. Think of how the person must feel when you’re bring a shit little problem to the table, but no solution.

Don’t me a megaphone and state the problems louder than necessary. What are you doing? What are you solving?

Be logical. Be thoughtful. Be proactive.
