03/15/2001 Entry: "WE decided? MY best interests?"

I try not to use the royal we about work things. Personal pet peeve. It's either "You need to do this" or "I want this" or "So-and-so says to do it this way." I'll stop when I catch myself saying it and correct myself. Camaraderie is great and all and this might be a team effort in the big picture, but the individual action still needs to be done by one person.

So I try, but don't always succeed. Some days I feel spacy, and bitter; I give poor instructions, and ineffective feedback. I write emails which don't really say anything. I neglect important technical details for sweeping generalizations.

In short, some days I'm a better executive than others.
