So I’m waiting to start working, another day at the store.
The last few days I’ve worked have been REALLY slow. I started out the month @ the top of the list in our stack rankings, but I’ve since slid down a bit to fourth. I’ve had a really slow couple of days. The good news is that the first six months have a ‘grace period’ in which I cannot be disciplined for performance. The bad news is the fact that I don’t WANT to have to use that grace period, I want to pull my own weight and do my job well. Many of the others are also not hitting goal, but that’s not an excuse.
I see customers come in and either I’m not the first one to greet them or I’m with someone else, and all of these activations are going to others. It’s very much a ‘luck of the draw’ kind of situation and my luck hasn’t been great.
Eh…it’s the first month. I’m used to being highly successful and I’m irritated that I didn’t hit the ground running. All in good time, I suppose.
(This bit of pessimism brought to you by the fact that the last song on my iPod was from Radiohead…~)
