since no one reads this and it's impossible to hide anything on facebook for longer than 10 minutes, i think i will come here to plot. (Since my xmind isn't working. argh!)
I think i'm going to do a stewards training. i just have to map it out so my boss (perhaps bosses) doesn't get pissy, and it won't cost me eight arms and nine legs.
The downsides-I can't force people to attend, I can't pay them to attend, the office is too far to use as a venue. No doubt some people will inform me that I'm wrong--don't I know blah blah blah. There will be whining. This may rock the apathy boat and cause me more shit than good. This has to be well planned down to the minute or the shared suffering and bitching will overtake the possible solutions.
The upsides- No one else is training them so I can build this from the ground up. I already have drawn up contract cheat sheets, and I have an awesome powerpoint on schedule grievances. I could teach them to file grievances, and sign pending members. This would all reduce my work load and result in much better enforcement. Fellowship is always good. It's like building a community.
Other crap-I'm going to have to pay for food. I really don't like that idea. I could do a few pieces over multiple weeks and open it up to everyone. That would really be a double-edged sword.
This is always what happens. I think I have a good idea. And it is a good idea on some level, but on another level it becomes some over-produced train-wreck.
I guess the first thing is to draw out some type of lesson plan, map it and time it. Then plan accordingly. Maybe I can use a conference room somewhere, like 817? Then the food and drive are limited, but getting the space becomes a problem.
I need to go to work. Maybe I'll call Drew and see what he thinks, after I return all of vacation buddy's calls. mmmm...vacation...
