Captain, smile!

  1. "Your report for the forthcoming negotiations should be on the table at the head of the next day. Suddenly announced that talks postponed for tomorrow, so everything should be ready by the morning. " Alas, such rotations have to be always ready: an unexpected rush jobs happen in every office. It is always better to finish ahead of an important document about a day before it is needed. The main principle - prudence. But, of course, the knowledge of this saying will not solve your problem now, when the report is not completed yet, but it is necessary to let the nurse at 8pm.

    What to do?

    Adapt to the situation. Documents with which we have to work, are not labeled "top secret"? You work in a closed enterprise? Then the paper in the bag - and run to the child! On the way, without losing time, call, wherever you can, look for an assistant, ready to feed the baby meal and bathe. It seems that 15 - year old daughter of the neighbors to look for ways to earn extra money? Of course, if the house is not necessary computer programs (by the way, why not?), Then the situation escalates.

    Lesson for the future: you and your home computer should be ready to ensure that the house you could not work as effectively as in the office. In general, if the house is not to finish the report turns out, this is the plan of action. Early in the morning and come to the office, including maximum speed, all finish. But for this it is important to agree with all the "team members": with her husband that he threw the child in the morning to grandma or a kindergarten or nanny - that she, too, came early.

  2. " The final meeting on the deal of the century not to be missed, but there is a call from kindergarten: a child - a temperature of 39 C! "We are all losing my mind when a child that - something is wrong, and we are not close. We urgently need to be there: come tearing save - included maternal instinct. And this reaction is normal, it is the inherent nature. And if the day before had been a sleepless night, the anxiety is compounded by general depression - and we are not able to adequately assess the situation.

    What to do?

    Stop blaming yourself. The kid got sick, not because you're a heartless mother, go to work, rather than patronize it all day. All children are ill - and the home, caring mothers, too. The child has fever, and in the garden or at home, he is no longer so important. Incidentally, in the garden there is a professional nurse, so what - there is a sense the child is even better. And certainly he would be safe before your arrival. (And if you are not sure, I was a kindergarten!).

    The final meeting will not last forever, in the evening you really find yourself at home. Try to take time off for tomorrow, to look after a sick kid and cheer him up. If not, the breaks (and they are in all, the most important meetings) grab the notebook and look for someone who can at least a day to sit with the child: mother, sister, friend.

  3. "A colleague fell ill, and now all of her work will fall on you. A key customer of the company is very angry and waiting for the report within 48 hours " .Neudivitelno That after the eve of the chief expressed her dissatisfaction with negotiations with key clients, colleagues decided to be ill ... Of course, she preferred not to risk workplace. After all, there will always be who insure it - even if you have agreed with the authorities of part-time working week, and tomorrow you off ...

    What to do?

    Be positive. Yes, you do not spend the day with your child, but put on hand on heart, whether he really scary experience? He is only 1 year and a little - a little, and it is not distinguish weekdays - so tomorrow, for it will again Monday. With a nanny would be more difficult: it was she - knows the days of the week and its output are not easy to give up!

    Persuade: promise Award (reasonable), thanks to the response, a week in the Caribbean ... No, the Caribbean, this is probably unnecessary. But three tickets for her and her grandchildren on the fifth or a tenth of (how many of them there are only?) "Pirates of the Caribbean" as an incentive not to interfere. Especially if the boss then thank you for saving the company a small premium. And maybe increase: if your (and the nurse's) revenues may increase ... Overall, begged her to save your life (professional).

    Babysitting refuses inflexibility and rushed to the aid? We get the "magic" notebook full of phone cute, intelligent women who are ready to earn some money! And yet - an unexpected solution: maybe call your husband to work and affect the patient? ..

  4. "Visiting a workshop for your Department: 3 days, plus a flight to Cyprus. All is good, but how to keep the baby? " .Bezhim Plane, trying not to think about what the child is going to do and then how to push it in the usual framework. Or stay home and "pass the course." As well as an annual bonus ...

    What to do?

    Choose. But think about it: you deserve this seminar, more about vacation with girlfriends office and a full bed. It is only necessary to prepare everything so that your departure was as painless as possible for the child - and the one who stays with him (do not forget to bring a gift to this brave man!).

    Solemnly pass husband "magic" notebook. On the eve prepare all that you may need the baby: clothes, food, diapers, phone numbers of doctors. And do not worry: even if your absence will happen "crash", is a great opportunity for her husband to feel, how much you have to resolve!

  5. "In recent years, work has ceased to please: spiteful colleagues, head too picky. You go out there as hard labor ... " .These Feelings can be born only from fatigue. If you work a lot, and the house has a "second front", parental and household, have something to fall into depression.

    What to do?

    Do not dramatize. It is clear that it is easier said than done: the man is not a machine to switch the mood at will. Consoles himself with the thought that we do not go to work for us there loved, and to earn money and feel useful and important. Sometimes, of course, it is not as significant as we would like, but in the future we will surely be able to change it. But drastic changes need forces that yet. Prescribe yourself a recipe: tender game with the baby, instead of dinner "picnic" in front of TV with her husband, a good movie.

  6. "The company on the verge of bankruptcy, and soon you will find yourself without a job. The mere thought of outstanding credits is the horror " .Konechno, A family man in charge of the house, children, babysitter, dog, etc., to be without a job worse than alone. But a little light on those with whom it never happened: the collapse of the company, unexpected dismissal, the delay of salaries. So it is necessary to repeat to himself: "The trouble that we will survive! ".

    What to do?

    View and update your resume, hoping that you will soon be offered a place with the same duties, and also better paid. Regardless of the job search is necessary to adjust the family budget, adjust expenditure under the new situation: what expenses can be reduced, and which - even trim? See whether it is possible to restructure the loan: repayment period will be increased, but the monthly payments decrease. We regard the temporary as simple as an unexpected vacation you never know cases we have accumulated! In the end, it's time to analyze your skills and understand what kind of job I would like to have.

  7. "At 11 pm, the nurse calls and says that ill. Not one day " .People Are sick - sometimes. We'll have to stay at home - what can you do? All sounds logical, but not for your boss.

    What to do?

    Negotiate. Explain the boss that the presence in the office - that's not all. The main thing - our efficiency and performance. Especially when the nurse healed, we set to work with redoubled energy and catch up! The next time the boss is much calmer consideration to the fresh idea of ​​"work at home".

 Captain, smile!
