how not to beg in the streets

Don't write your life story on a piece of cardboard, no one has time. Just ask for money.

Maybe I'm getting lazy with this one, but I saw a couple writing something on some cardboard that looked like a life story. I caught the first part of it - "Traveling..." that's about as far as anyone would get. So to any would-be travelers who run out of money - write really big "Traveling, need money! Please help!" that's it. Three lines, really big.

I also learned don't derail a train that's barreling down the tracks! Personal story - working hard on cleaning house and making great headway. Out of left field comes a request from management that would completely sidetrack the effort! I still need to push back on that one, at least it should wait until we clear out the playing field. Right thought, wrong timing!
Sudden change is a huge source of stress. "Stress can initiate the "fight or flight" response, a complex reaction of neurologic and endocrinologic systems.

Resulting in high employee turnover. Those in leadership positions should be aware of the stress that their activities may cause. One way is to gauge current workload and progress before introducing new work. And keep the timelines and scope realistic.
