Pushback

Are people getting more and more lazy, or am I just becoming less and less helpful? Admittedly, I’ve built my career being excessively helpful to others, always offering support and advice when they need it. But these days I can’t help feeling that people are taking advantage of the kindness of their colleagues.

That’s why at last they’re getting pushback, that nice, helpful teammate all of a sudden gruff and assertive. Sure, I’ll train you. I’ll patiently support you. I’ll go above and beyond. But no, I’m not going to do your job for you. It’s time for a change of mindset.

I guess the drugs are working.
