The effect the corona crisis had on Chris

Chris couldn’t sleep anymore. He had difficulties falling asleep at night. He was actually very tired but as he couldn’t get any rest, the sleeping part fell away. Chris never used to go to bed before midnight but lately he was tossing and turning even shortly before three a.m. in the morning, frustrated about not being able to fall asleep. Then he tried it with alcohol. When he drank in the evenings, he got so tired at 11pm that he could fall asleep without an issue. Unfortunately, his sleep didn’t last very long. He would be awake again shortly after, at three a.m. and couldn’t fall back asleep anymore.

His rest phase at night got shorter and shorter and his frustration grew larger and larger.

Was die Corona-Zeit Chris angetan hatte

Chris konnte nicht mehr schlafen. Er hatte Schwierigkeiten am Abend einzuschlafen. Eigentlich war er ganz müde, aber da er keine innere Ruhe finden konnte, ist der Schlaf ausgeblieben. Chris ist nie vor Mitternacht ins Bett gegangen aber in der letzten Zeit wälzte er sich auch noch kurz vor 3 Uhr morgens in der Verzweiflung nicht einschlafen zu können. Dann versuchte er es mit Alkohol. Wenn er am Abend getrunken hatte, war er um 11 Uhr so müde, dass er ohne weiteres einschlafen konnte.

Leider hat sein Schlaf aber nicht lange angedauert. Kurz nach 3 Uhr war er wieder wach und konnte nicht mehr einschlafen. Seine Erholungsphasen in der Nacht wurden immer kürzer und seine Verzweiflung immer grösser.

I work

The number of my employers is increasing all the time. That means that the number of hours that I work each day is increasing continuously. Unfortunately, the increased time spent is not reflected in increased taxable income. That’s just how it is and I don’t expect it to get any better. I even expect that that’s how it’ll continue and that my free-time, where I can really do what I feel like, will become an exception.

Professional life – recognition

I’ve been in the business a long time. Not forever, but already quite long. This September I had my 20th anniversary with the firm. I would like to have said celebrated, but that wouldn’t have been true, because there was no celebration. 20 years with the same employer, today that feels like eternity. I wouldn’t even have noticed it myself, if one fine day I hadn’t found a box of wine on my desk. Read More »

Wie finde ich die richtigen Angestellten

Diese Theorie suggeriert, dass die Mehrheit der Leute, die suchen unqualifizierte Ignoranten sind. Denn das oben beschriebene, passiert so gut wie nie.Read More »

I am regularly away on business. Sometimes more often, sometimes less, sometimes just in the next city and sometimes on a different continent. I like my work very much and consider myself very privileged to be that lucky.Read More »

The boss is not always right

When I met Marie yesterday, she was very upset. Marie works for a medium-sized company and since one year now she has a new boss. And he is giving her a hard time. Marie is a clever, diligent girl with a lot of sense of responsibility. But sometimes she is also a bit impulsive and has difficulties to follow conventions. But if necessary and that happens regularly at her work place, she works countless overtime hours and works even on weekends. Read More »
