Being "one more thinged"

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Coast 200305001

Have you ever been "one more thinged" to death? Of course you have, we all have.

The solution to it is the hard part. I have had jobs in other fields of work that the boss added one more thing and one more thing. Six months later you wake up and realize you are really out in "left field" from where the job and job description started. I believe the last few years as company's tried to survive, many where assigned a bigger load to keep from needing more staff. Sometimes this came in the form of slowly adding one more thing, then one more thing, This has proven the point of "less is more" and set an unfortunate precedent.

Originally this blog was going to be about a buyer that "one more thinged" everyone involved, but as they say. "thats a whole another show" How have you handled one more thingers?

Somehow everything just gets 'piled on' like a basket of clothes. Here, do this (shirt). Here, do this (pants). Run here (socks).  Then suddenly the basket is full, you're out of energy with a big mound of mess.  Supposedly, technology is able to make us handle more efficiently - I really don't see that happening.  I see people that are running all over like nutt-jobs not being able to finish a sentence they are in such a hurry.

Rob, You been watching my corporate job?  They've been one more thinging us to the point where most of us are now doing what used to be 2-3 people's jobs.  And it's not going to stop.  Bill

You have to "draw the line" in the sand sometimes. Enough is enough!!

Good morning Rob. I really enjoyed this and can absolutely relate. Sometimes one thing leads to another and then you are somewhere else.

I am with Yvonne.  Sometimes, you just have to draw the line somewhere.  And, you just kept us all entertained with the comments, too.
