... maybe I'll lurk for a while..... no-one wants to hear from me at 4am.
That said... sitting up at 9.30 pm listening, and seeing what else has been added since I looked at the office...
It seems more and more addicts everyday... people on this at midnight their time.. global chats gotta love this place.…
until Monday morning.
"Where is Mark today? Why isn't he here to meet that candidate?"
"It's HangOver Monday - He is probably so hung over he’s in a coma!"
"Oh, I see......"
There are people among us who manage to “show up” and do their jobs in spite of the fact that they may have a loved one, a co-worker, an employee, a boss, a spouse, a friend, a roommate who is an alcoholic, a heroin addict, a pill popper, a…whatever it’s called that their addiction takes them.
I am one of those people.
There are days I don’t want to get out of bed and there are nights I never go to bed because of the stress.
I know there are also people among us who struggle with addiction themselves.
Nobody talks about this. I want to. Will you join me in tomorrow’s MagicMethod class at noon EST to talk about how to do your job when you have all this stuff going on in your background? It’s not going to be easy to talk about this but it might not be nearly as hard as you think.
“In times of stress, be bold and valiant.” ~ Horace (Ancient Roman Poet. 65 BC-8 BC)…
g video's, commentary, insights, sense of community and chat, I could go on.....
However I'd like to make a list (and emplore you all help me) for tell tale signs that I became addicted.
- I can't not log into it, just to see what has happened whilst I have been away.
- I cannot go to bed without checking first
- I invite my colleagues, and all Recruiters I know to the site
- I don't automatically delete the notifications od the hundreds of people joining six degrees from Dave
- I am compelled to add my 2 cents (and even better haven't been rebuked.. yet!)
- I feel a connection to the community here, (even though I haven't met too many of you) and miss it when not online...
Ok this is getting sad! Please let me know of other tell tale signs... the community needs our help! :) From John Sumser's latest article it seems the addiction is hitting plague proportions…
