For my last two weeks
on the business gig,
I don’t have a network friendly computer.
It is driving me crazy.
I can’t check email.
I can’t pitch in to help.
I can’t answer special requests.

All I can do
is train my replacement.

Which is, of course, my sole goal.

I’m a doer.
If I had the tools,
I’d be helping her, not training her.
By taking away my tools
and giving them to my replacement,
I am FORCED to train
the ENTIRE time I’m in the office.
If I want anything done
(and as a doer, getting things done is a priority),
I have to teach her to do it.

If you need to force a doer to train,
give her tools to the trainee.
