Election Night

(I had written this to both Twitter and Facebook earlier tonight, but I think it’s work reposting here)

I think election night is one of those nights that everyone on social media gets a free pass to rant. Emotions are running high on both sides. Just remember we all have to live with each other tomorrow and we can’t change the results.

The voters have spoken for better or for worse. This does not mean if you are not happy you give up. It means if you think the government of the day is not doing their job then you make them know that. Do it in a way that does not involve name-calling. Stick to facts.

There have been good and bad candidates in all parties which means there are good and bad candidates that have been elected. Remember almost all of them ran to serve.

Double check things you read. Get to know your MPP, ask them to be involved in their communities, the good ones will want to know what is going on. Make sure they and the community at large know about the challenges that many people in this province face. We have never been in a better era to let these sort of messages be heard. (for better or for worse). Be well.

How to be a first-rate subordinate at work

Isabel Berwick writes in the Financial Times

For most of us, though, there is a balance to be struck: how far do we feel responsible for the success of our team and how far should we focus on our own needs?

A good overview on why sometimes being a leader is not the best choice for everyone.

Damn right….
