A coworker of mine takes a really long time to respond to my email requests…
Like last time I emailed, it took her 6 days to get back to me. The time before that she took 8 days to respond to my request.
(these aren’t very hard requests btw.)
Well, just yesterday… SHE emailed ME requesting some information…
And now I’m thinking… Although I have the reply and info ready to send, should I sit on this request and purposefully delay my response for 6-8 days? Give her a taste of her own medicine?
It’s tempting to stoop to her level, but I already know it wouldn’t feel great in the long run.
The choice in front of me is quite simple: I can either purposefully hurt someone, or purposefully help them. (I think i’ll choose helping. It’s what I’m on this earth to do)
Reminder for today: No matter how someone treats you, don’t let it pollute your personal work ethic, values, or mission in life.
Grudges. degrade. happiness. 👏
Happy hump day!
