People who know me know that I take my job very seriously. I have a certain love of work and I believe that if you are going to do a job you should do it well and you should do it with all your heart. My employer is paying me to do a job and I, as a man with integrity, feel that I must do my absolute best. It is why I rarely get truly frustrated with work, I understand the business aspects of almost every decision. I approach work for what it is, a business.

But lately work has been frustrating me. I'm doing stuff that I no longer should be doing. I don't have the adequate resources to do my job correctly. When I complain it seems these complaints fall on to deaf ears. Normally I would just get up and quit but most who read this blog know why I have to stay around. It is only through sheer will, determination, and lots of hard work on my part and the people who work for/with me that things haven't completely fallen apart. Like I said, part of being able to deal with work is the fact that I understand it is a business. But what happens when decisions seemingly no longer make business sense?

It is not like me to complain about work so you know how bad things have gotten. I will of course still do my job and do it as well as I can but at this point even that might not be good enough.

Can't you hire someone new?

I feel your pain and understand your perspective. I guess I just don't deal with it as well (because I remember when it wasn't like this).
