What’s a “druther”?
That’s what you would “druther” be doing instead of what you are doing. Now does it make sense?
I’ve been grown for too long to think that just because I make a list that I’m going to be able to deliver on it Immediately if not sooner or maybe at all. BUT, you are entitled to know what I would want to do if given the chance. That’s fair.
These are all very tall orders. I have no illusions that they would be cheap, fast, or easy to implement. One of the things I learned as a middle manager was this: you have three things that all stakeholders want and they are: low cost, fast turnaround, and high profitability. But here’s the catch. You can only have two out of the three. Invariably, my stakeholders wanted all three. But it doesn’t work that way. Only 2 out of 3 are allowed. Decisions.
I am trying to tell you that somebody somewhere along the line is not going to be happy with the decision to prioritize one of these above the others. I get that. There’s always somebody left out because there isn’t room in the budget.
As of right now, I would have to go with protecting our women first. It’s the most flagrant attack on our Constitutional Rights that I have ever seen. That is a critical and crucial move that will literally mean saving women’s lives. I worked in hospitals with Labor and Delivery units and neonatal ICUs. I’ve seen what happens and I was only in/out as a lab tech. I’ve had too many friends suffer miscarriages and fetal deaths. I cannot, in good faith to them, my nieces, and other members of my own family, not support that first.
The other four? I truly don’t know. They are all important. Perhaps they are equally important. If that’s true, somebody hand me a quarter. I’ll flip it and do it that way.
One thing for sure, though, you will get your money’s worth out of me. I never do anything at less than 150% or more. It’s always all in.
