1/3 of the way there. MT is my nickname.

30 days of hangin' Mentally Tough in my personal life! I told myself this was it, and I am doing it. I have lost some weight, refined some eating habits and learned to listen when I tell myself no! I've picked up my physical pace...a bit... and am going to start adding exercise to my routine. Considering the frequency of snow around here I get plenty of arm and back workouts.
I am pleased yet unhappy about the progress at work. Now that the major discovery phase is over and I identified the issues, it's time to make the major changes. We officially terminated the staff who were outright dangerous and now I need to coach the current staff into compliance. It's pretty simple. You do the right thing and no one gets hurt. Follow the procedures, ask questions instead of "faking it" or doing it your "special "way and we all can sleep at night. We, meaning me and a few administrators, now that they are in the know.
But what they aren't prepared for is after the discovery phase is the acknowledgement phase...I still need to disclose my discovery to the regulators. They'll come swooping in like vultures on road kill. That's going to be another round of non-stop days. The nice thing here, if there is a nice thing, state and fed workers are all about 9-5 days and no weekends!
Exercise is just around the corner as soon as I can ditch the cops!
