two strikes and you’re out

Yes it may be a baseball term but you can put it into the work environment as well. My friend V first introduced me to the concept over ten years ago and I have never forgotten it.

Someone approached me about a new temping adventure a while back. It sounded quite good at the time so my ‘interest’ was duly reported back to the manager concerned. However after waiting for three weeks, and despite a follow up phone call and email, nothing eventuated.

So my ‘two strikes and you are out’ approach kicked in.

It’s my responsibility to make sure I have ongoing employment and I can’t afford to wait while others dither about not making decisions so I’ve stood my ground. And it was the right move ‘cos fingers crossed I’m about to move into a nice new role that should last for several months.
