One of my early self-help book addictions was the texts of Peter McWilliams – he’s passed now and the texts to all of his books are available on his website for free.
Minor scuffle yesterday when I tried to get one of my ex-bosses (now a consultant) to find someone else to do her typing and copying. We both got very defensive. I just wanted to blurt out: I haven’t worked here four years to be typing people’s shit for them. Yes it’s funny and cute to joke about how Luddite this consultant is but it’s a pain in the ass when I come in in the morning and there’s a stack of things for me to do. I gently tried to suggest someone in her client departments might be able to offer support. Or maybe you could type it out yourself. I’m very volatile lately. Low tolerance for just about everything.
