Micro-rebellion [Apr. 25th, 2007|11:19 am]

Observation for the day:

If someone doesn't follow your detailed directions precisely, it may not be because they didn't understand or you weren't clear in your explanation.

It may be because they thought your directions were stupid and obnoxious, and they decided that, while they would still perform the appointed task, it wasn't worth their while to bother with the idiot details you attached to it.

And now, I'm off to misapprehend some details.

When i work for a micro-manager, nothing pleases me more than getting the job done right, then explaining how i did it, often varying widely from what they said. :D
