Can you let me work!

    It's a nuthouse!

    When 5 people come to you asking for Status on this, ETA on that, Seven times a day, instead of looking at your status mail that you spent 2 hours preparing for their viewing pleasure. Randomizing the hell out of you. Then this is completely unproductive!

    Here's the deal. I need time to concentrate. My work is delicate enough that if I lose concentration for a second. It might spell catastrophe.

    I've read somewhere, (can no longer find the source) that the mind needs at least 20 minutes to get in "the zone" where it's completely focused and working at top efficiency. Anything randomizing it, or interrupting it, will require another 20 minutes to restart it and put in on the right spot

    I don't want to contest the authenticity or validity of that statement. But it does hold some value. Based on my personal experience.

    I am really surprised why people just enjoy to come and ask for things when you have already spelled it out for them. (And they will hold you accountable to it since it's written) But will choose not to read it and bombard you with a stupid endless interrogation!

    It puzzles me, and forces me to question the real motives behind the barrage of questions. Are we trying to solve a problem? Are we at least heading in that direction? Could you have figured out the answer by looking at the email I sent you? Could this be more common sense!!?

    And what's up with the "twisting" of questions to match an answer in someone's mind?! If you ask me the same question five different time, in five different ways, the answer is always going to be the same. Stupidity, is defined as; doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results! And that's EXACTLY what some "really well educated people" are trying to do!

    Then comes the most annoying thing anyone can do. Don't go behind my back asking someone who works for me to give you a different estimate than mine. You don't know how he's being utilized, heck, even he doesn't know how he's utilized. All this sneaking business makes me really upset and angry at people trying to "Get things done" at the expense of other people and quality! Do you expect I'm going to give you a star for doing this!? Absolutely no way!

    Success comes to people who pay attention to the details. People who spend time understanding and planning. Not people who manage by crisis!

    You can eat the bread half baked, just don't blame the baker for your stomach ache!
    And that's your Qwaiderization for the day

    Qwaider, move back to Jordan.

    We'll get you a nice governmental job, come to work at 9am, have breakfast and coffee with the shabbab till 10am, work for 4hrs (usually giving hell to people, telling them to come back tomorrow, or go see Abu Tareg, Mawthoo3ak mish 3indi....

    Afterwards (from 4-8) you can work as "Semsar Arathi" selling el "Delem" in Qweesmeh for 250k, starting rumors that an airport will be built there......

    واه ومدام صرت جاي بنجوزك كمان و بنخلص من مواظيع البنات و الحب إلي صرعنا فيها
    Qwaider,

    I am sorry to say this to you, but I have a couple of employees like you and I have to tell you this.

    If your manager or the person managing your tasks behaves in this manner, they are only doing it because they believe you are unreliable and risky for the project.

    Personally, I allow my resources as much rope and delegation as they are mature enough to handle.

    Notice that I said "they believe you are unreliable and....". It's their perception that is wrong. So here we are faced with two logical scenarios.

    1. You are in face unreliable and need to work on that. And make sure you let the management know this.

    2. You are quite reliable, and your management is getting a skewed view of you and your work. You need to address it.

    Which ever scenario it is, note that you need to communicate better with your management.

    Of course, a third distant but possible scenario is the conspiracy theory that people in your own workplace are bi2asfino ba3ad, and you get your share. Everyone hates politics, yet everyone does it.
    Actually, when my manager asks for things. He's got every right to do so! But when it's other people, who are randomizing me, and people who work for me .. then I have to stand firm against it.

    Anyway, you do provide such a good argument and I agree completely with it, but I think it's for a different situation
