WARNING… reality check.. if you’ve got kids.. or other time /family commitments.. it’s pretty tough to squeeze all the work in at that level… but.. hey.. I think anyone with enough caffeine might be able to do it.

Organizational Change- It’s a given…. How do successful admins survive change?
Experience does matter. Attitude matters. Approach matters.
Here’s why it matters:
Experienced admins know when to pick a battle, intuitively knows when to stay away from the boss and /or co-worker who is pre-postal…
Attitude.. griping..begets griping.. if you are that miserable.. leave.. if not, shut up… and be happy you have a job
Approach.. better come with a potential solution to your beef.. ..don’t waste time by expecting a frazzled boss to solve your problems.. they are your boss.. NOT your parent. You.. are an adult (disappointing, no?) Take care of your own business!
