Not only is the sheer amount of content impressive, it is also so well designed and cleverly implemented. Past leagues often had a point where it felt like GGG didn't think their idea through to the end.
One personal example of ritual being awsome was me finding a 5 link that I could only defer because it was too expensive. Then loosing this to a zone that had only one ritual altar with not enough to pay the defer cost only to find an even better 5 link a few zones later.
TLDR: let's all play the crap out of this patch and show GGG that 4 months are the correct choice.
So I work for a grocery store as a personal shopper for their in house grocery pick up and delivery service. Not too toot my own horn but I am uncontestedly the fastest and best employee in the entire day shift. For context I can pick around 100-120 unique items per hour while the average person does around 60 (which is the expected minimum). It’s safe to say that this department relies on me quite heavily. To the point where the department manager has to find 2 people to replace me when I can’t come to a shift. This is mainly because I find the job pretty boring so I throw in an airpod and listen to music. Im fast mainly because it makes me feel like I’m actually doing something while I’m here. It’s also important to note that there’s no incentive for me to perform more than anyone else, I don’t get paid more, there’s no recognition, I just do it bc it keeps me busy.
Now one of the assistant store managers doesn’t like me. I can’t figure out the reason but she doesn’t. Either way she decided today that it would now be a rule that you couldn’t listen to music while picking groceries as “they didn’t know what you were listening to”, nothing in relation to not being able to hear customers, which I could anyways. Now I asked others about this tile and they hadn’t been told anything and were still wearing earbuds and listening to music.
It’s important for us to have at least a 1 hour buffer, it allows us to call customers to review changes made to their order and then adjust anything as per their request, this is how we ensure their satisfaction. Today it was really busy, we could barely keep that buffer with me at full productivity, which I was until being told no more music. That’s when things began to nosedive, and fast. Within half an hour we had lost half of our buffer and by the time I was done my pick, we had completely lost it. This ASM is now being chewed out my the GM because were behind and that’s a serious issue. She then looks at the chart that shows our pick rates and asks him where I am, explaining that we shouldn’t be behind with me there. All the while I’m sitting there taking my sweet ass time writing bin tags until she confronts me as to why I’m picking so slowly. I explained that I had no obligation to go above and beyond and that because there was a clear double standard being held, I didn’t see a reason to perform at a higher level then the rest of the department. After the cogs in her head finally stopped turning she realized that it... keep reading on reddit ➡
I love the races on Sunday but I also loved finishing a race on Sunday knowing that depending on the week there was also a Wednesday or Thursday night race due to the schedule compaction thanks to COVID. It was a little something to look forward to in the middle of the week.
I see this a lot in my industry. “I like working at 5am or 8pm. It’s not a problem right?” No. It’s not if you’re just working.
The problem becomes when you start scheduling meetings.
For those of us in international business that means people in different time zones will start scheduling earlier and earlier because clearly it’s alright with you. They’ll come to assume that’s fine with your team and start scheduling meetings for everyone at 5am.
When you are out of the office, your peers need to replace you on your 5am calls or 8pm calls.
People do not like their work life balance interrupted. That is a really quick way to be deemed inconsiderate & become disliked on your team.
***Edit: I’m NOT talking about time zones where it’s impossible to meet without it being at a shitty hour (ie India and San Francisco). I’m specifically talking about instances where there are overlapping hours WITHIN the business day for BOTH time zones.
Retroactively looking back I feel like I was being stupid for wanting to binge watch all the episodes on the same day. I realized that because of the release schedule I actually did not feel the boredom for the two months as i was eagerly waiting for the next episode. After the boys I found myself really bored as i had nothing do. So in the end the creative decision really paid off in my opinion. Anyone else feel the same ?
I don’t fully know if this question is allowed but I’m really curious. I want to know the times people go to sleep and wake on the average day (not on school days though). I personally get all my energy around 12am and go to sleep around 2-3am and will wake up in between 9-11am.
I have 2 kids, 9m and 8f. They have 3 zooms a day that, just recently, became mandatory for the parents as well. If you are not in that zoom frame in every meeting, apparently attendance points get taken from the kids final grade. This was all discussed over their virtual school meeting last Sunday.
I work during the day from home, 6a-230p. The zoom meetings are at 815a, 1130a and 315p. The only way I could attend these meetings was by having my kids sit behind me in my office while I worked so that I was still in the frame. Apparently this was a huge distraction to the other kids even though my kids mics were muted and I was asked to find a way around it. They suggested I take my breaks during the zoom calls or even changing around my work schedule.
Originally I just went with it and called my boss to see if I could check in later, after the zoom was over and take my breaks during the other zoom that happens during my work shift. She said I couldnt. That I'm needed at my normal time because I'm shift manager but she did give me 3 days to figure it out. So for the past 10 zooms I have been able to sit in and I'm incredibly unimpressed that they have asked me to basically jeopardize my job for such meetings. All they talk about are their pets and what they've been doing at home for fun. Nothing at all to do with any sort of school related thing. And this happened in every single zoom.
So I called the school this morning and told them that while I know everything is stressful for them right now, I will not be switching around my work schedule to attend zoom meetings that have nothing to do with school and made a point to tell them that my boss is not willing to change my schedule. They immediately became snippy and said that it was mandatory. That the teachers have uprooted their whole lives for this and that it's the parents job to accommodate accordingly. Which, I get it. However, my job is the only thing that keeps food on the table and a roof over our heads and I'm not about to jeopardize that to sit in mandatory meetings with a bunch of students showing off their cats. They tried arguing that they discuss school work all the time but they truly havent in any zoom meeting I have attended. So, again, i told them i would not be attending and if it was a big deal, I could contact the super intendent directly to tell him why I will not make it the accommodations. I didnt say this as a threat, as they took it. I said this in an attempt to take the heat of... keep reading on reddit ➡
I recently couldn't get out of bed because sunrise wouldn't be before 9 and depression is a bit*h. I attached a timer to my daylight lamp so it is turned on at 6am and turns off at 10 am. That way the cortisol production is triggered and your body will wake up faster! You can also buy alarm clocks which work that way. I got this life hack from my biology professor when we talked about the circadian rhythm. For my experience I can say that light boosts your body more that coffee!
