There are times when hard decision needs to be made, but when you made it, it might not have the desired results as you expected. I have had the pleasure of executing a bad move recently. :P
Now as business goes, many things should not have been decided upon without thorough thought, and I do admit that the execution was partly flawed. The intention was to cause an alarm, and to serve as a wake up call, but it seemed to have some side effects of lowering the morale. Well, what's done cannot be undone, and the hardest part was trying to spin it in a way that will have the results we want, but yet not having the desired side effects.
All these must sound somewhat crytic, but it is meant to be that way. Sorry if all these doesn't make sense to you. The takeaway is (if there's any), is that you should always put yourself in other people's shoes whenever you make any decisions. Yes I always do that, but this time, it was truly overlooked. Of course, I don't forsee any of my staff reading this, but even if they did, what the heck. The aim was to get attention, and attention I had gotten. Everyone is talking about it and that's what I wanted. Next month things should return to usual. In the meantime, i forsee that it is gonna be a tough month ahead ....
Shit I am starting to sound like George W Bush.
