A leader is best
When people barely know he exists,
When his work is done, his aim fulfilled,
They will say:
We did it ourselves.

— Lao-Tzu

We’re falling apart, but I guess it was only a matter of time. Today’s news…. our newest (local) leader was encouraged to take on a greater role, a promotion, if you will, to a position where he could be placed squarely to blame for our crumbling division which he did not build, has not led for more than a week, and would stand no chance to turn around. He declined, and thus declined to be a leader at all. He attempted to resign on the spot, but was instead taken under the wing of another group so that he retains employment for now.

All this leaves us… leaderless. All this leave us without a voice to make sure our transition from IMS product to whatever-the-new-shit is called happens at the end of the month. All this means that come March 1st, we have nothing to do, officially.

End of the line? And if so, who will tell us so. I’m of the same mind as others in my leaderless group to whom I’ve spoken today: as long as the paychecks keep coming, we’ll stay by the phone, keep checking email, and wait for assignments.

I think I’ve finally finished my contract work today. Took most of Sunday, a little yesterday, and most of this morning to finish, and I’m really still not sure about the email templates. Now, I’m supposed to have a pile of FNIS work to do, and I do… Marc is even sending me a list in priority of who is yelling at him the loudest, so I guess I’ll get on that. Still have to make the weekly grocery store run today, when JamesT gets ready, and then who knows what. I guess I’ll get on this stuff that I’m behind two full days on, according to the assignment calendar. The faster I get it done, the more time I have to figure out what happens next, I guess.

Also… I hear this Saturday night is the last night the Chamber will be open. Anyone up for going out?
