Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday May 22nd, 2019

I took my first half day off in May.  I tried to not work for 6 hours. I picked up my daughter and we went shopping and did everything but work.   And it was brutal.  Of course nobody knows that I’m not working so everyone still expects me to answer texts and phone calls.  I made sure to forward all the important stuff to work but let the rest sit.  I had a friends wife text me about what web site to use to make a quick site.  The kind of emails and texts I get all the time.  People want plant advice and Internet advice.  I read the text but didn’t answer figuring I would get to it later.  Two hours later I got a “NeverMind”.  I’m not sure why, but it really bothered me.  I have asked a favor of non family members to about 5 people in the last 3 years.   Kate Buckley, Travis, and Josh are the domain people I work with and have asked for favors and they have been super helpful. In my personal life I have a few doctor friends that I have asked to move me up in line in appointments or diagnose on the side. That’s it. Other than that I only help others and put them in contact with people that can help if I can’t.  So when people get pissy with me for not helping,  it bothers me.
She also reminded me why I needed to take a break.  That shouldn’t have upset me and only did because I was emotionally tired.  It didn’t help that the job market is tight and there is a job war going on with every employer stealing each others employees by raising wages.  The average landscaper wage has risen $3 to $4 this year and climbing.  I have one landscaping company that we sell plants to that offered two of my employees more money so they left.  With one day notice.  If realize if they weren’t happy or they would have stayed or given me the chance to match (and I wouldn’t have) but the lack of notice left me scrambling to fill their roles.  They also blasted me on Facebook for being a dick to them after they left.  We have a policy that if anyone doesn’t give a weeks notice we mail their check.  They didn’t like that.  I admit, I’m not as friendly if you leave me hanging.  Add in its the busiest time of year at the nursery and my daughter is home from college and my wife is adjusting to having a teenager back (i.e. arguing over silly stuff with her)  and it’s been a grind.  Not sure a half day is going to do the trick (I’ve answered 10 texts just during this monologue) but just writing this out has helped.  Going through the lists and doing my domain stuff relaxes me.  I can turn off the phone, sit at my computer,  and make a little extra money. The world’s greatest hobby.
Tomorrow I start a new day with a better attitude and no matter what happens I always have domains and a beautiful family to come home to.  Here are today’s names. Make sure to click on the names to see the current price and to help DSAD keep on keeping on

  1. I know that feeling sometimes.

    Especially when people are ungrateful after you give them help. One time in a random local neighborhood post, someone was asking for career advice. I said I could help and she emailed me with some questions. I answered them in a couple of paragraphs. Probably an hour to write it out. I didn’t even get a thank you back. Maybe I overwhelmed her… but I wonder if she ever took the advice or went to go chase the next shiny object.

    1. I guess there is a reason there is a saying “What have you done for me lately”. Ironically most of the people that had trouble with me letting them go or quitting come back years later and
      tell me they now understand. The only ones that haven’t tend to be in the exact same place in life as when they left 10 years ago. Of course, I am also in the wrong at times but the difference is I know
      a day, a week later after I’ve cooled down.

  2. Love it. We have similar businesses and busy times.
    I’m to the point when I hear a text come in I make a “nice” comment 🙂
    This time of year I call a day off a day that I only work 8 hours.
    I had not hired high schoolers for a long time but this year I got lucky and found 2 great high school guys.
    Here’s to the dog days of summer 🙂

  3. Any chance that she found the answer herself or someone else helped her out and she was saying nevermind, because she didn’t need you to help her out anymore? I’ll send a nevermind text in a situation like that.

  4. Shane, by the sounds of it you’re absolutely right – you would benefit from taking time off more frequently. Being constantly “under the cosh” affects our judgement and even our decisionmaking. Hold a glass of water for an hour. It starts out being manageable but after 20 minutes it can become unbearable.
    We need to put the glass down for even short periods and then we can resume holding it much more effectively.
    And, remember to change your cell voicemail for days off/when you’re unavailable etc. Manage callers’ expectations.
    And, finally, are there aspects of your work role/tasks that you can delegate (with the essential proper planning and execution )?
    Look after yourself Shane!
    Take care,
