Tough, Tough Love

Tough, Tough Love

What I’ve often wanted to say in response to whiners:

What you’ve told me isn’t working, your approach is no good.

My approach is fine and it’s worked for tens of thousands, the problem is you’re not doing it well.

She doesn’t have her own budget, but she assures me she is the buyer and her boss “rubber stamps” her recommendations.

If I assure you that the Easter Bunny will leave eggs on your lawn are you going to depend on them for breakfast?

I’m so overwhelmed I can’t get anything done.

There is no such thing as “overwhelm” you’re just completely unorganized.

I have writer’s block.

There is no such thing as “writer’s block” you simply have nothing interesting to say.

Can I give you some background information?

No.
