When I am faced with a decision, I try to make that decision as wisely as possible, then forget it. This is something I try to apply daily. It’s not always easy, but it helps since we all know that moment of absolute certainty never arrives.
Back in December I took on a new client. My contact for them was a neighbour (the one who actually caused that big water damage two years ago) who’s part owner in the business.
I’ve met the men and conditions were agreed upon, etc. One part of the duties I have to do for them, is working relatively well. I think there are too many chefs in the kitchen and chaos is eminent.
Since I’ve been doing them, I feel flustered. It’s not a good feeling. I thought it was (and it might very well be) related to the time of year, my being busier, etc. but I’m wondering if it is really that or simply the fact that my brain is telling me that something isn’t right.
About three weeks ago I basically told them to get their act together or I would ditch them. Hubby is fully being me on this, he’s even been telling me this for a while now. These men are not businessmen, I don’t think I’ve ever seen people so disorganised. Can you believe they actually misplaced a whole month worth of invoices, receipts, etc? I couldn’t. I feel like I’ve been doing forensic more than anything else. It’s almost as if I’m doing puzzles; I try to figure out if this piece would work better there or there… it’s ridiculous.
It’s been eating at me. I’ve been in a funk and it is due in part to this situation. I feel like I’m letting them down, and I really don’t like this feeling. Last week I composed a message to them in which I was informing them I was done basically. I haven’t sent it yet, so I’ve been wondering if I am/was taking the right approach about this situation. I know that moment of certainty never arrives, but a little less fog would surely show me the path to take a bit better…
