Here it is almost 5:00 am and I am wide awake!
Why? Since 3:00 am this morning I’ve been pondering an incident that occurred at work yesterday. I missed an important call, luckily my supervisor in head office caught it, called me and gave me a heads up. I am responsible for dispatching, among hundreds of other things.
So, after dreaming about the issue I woke up pondering what to do about it.
On my own computer, at home, I can download software that will do just about anything I need it to do. At home when I have an issue I can make decisions and deal with it instantly, so that I don’t have to think about it again. No stress.
On the computer at work I am on a terminal. I can configure some of the software, but I cannot install software solutions.
I”ve just Googled the keywords for the issue at hand and discovered a very sound solution, based on software that is already installed on the work computer. The problem will be solved by 8:10 am this morning, shortly after I arrive for work. I won’t miss calls anymore. This is a great relief.
If only I’d thought of all this last night! But for me, dreams are an important part of problem solving, as is the early morning pondering process. Hopefully I can now get back to getting a full night’s sleep!
My employers get wayyyy too much of my time!
And now I’m off to get ready for another day of work!
