I look at the 5-day workweek like this, where five days out of the week, I’m working on maintaining my lifestyle as it is, whereas the other two days are where I can work on building larger projects out more. I try to apply this mentality to many aspects of my life, but sometimes, I forget to apply those lofty infrastructure changes to the maintenance portion of my life. When I do, however, it’s interesting.
How would you handle your career’s perfect storm scenario? The technical support scenario goes like this: you have a non-urgent scheduled event, someone calls just before you leave about an urgent issue, oh and an executive has a question about something trivial. How would you handle that scenario? “Assuming I can’t ask for help from anyone, right?” “Right.[1,2]” There’s plenty to unpack to make sure you got everything, but, did you deduce the red flags?
