Walk a mile in their shoes

Someone who works for me has been really frustrating me recently. Everything seems to take them too long. They frequently don’t get their work done, There have been times I have wondered whether I need to replace this person.

This week this employee has been on vacation and I have been taking on some of their responsibilities and now I know the reason this employee hasn’t been getting their work done is it’s virtually impossible in the time period allocated.

How many other frustrations do we have based on unrealistic expectations?

How many jobs do we think are easy based on what we think it takes as opposed to what it really takes?

People talk about “walking a mile in someone else’s shoes” but how many of us really take the time to do so?

Just something to think about.

Have a great day!
