To survive my present assignment I am beginning to realize the following.
Exercise before you go to work.
The way things have been going so far, lunch gets run over by fire drills on a regular basis.
Take legal but effective doses of meds.
It makes it a warrior calmer than he can make himself. Calmness is key in weathering the f**king storm
Apologize on a regular basis.
You are inept at constantly surging amounts of admin work.
Realize that you will never be able to catch up.
This is Bataan. Not Leyte Gulf. You will win eventually but not on Bataan. If you stay in your present mode for long enough, there will be a death march and you will be in the middle of it.
If they decide to walk you out, be sure to help them.
Run for you car and don't look back.
You can't change what has already happened. You can only make sure that it doesn't happen again.
