😬 One mistake threatened her career...

Updated: Nov 17, 2022

Marie and her team would always meet their deadlines.

Somehow they'd find a way, even though Marie couldn't tell you how they did it. Each week Marie stayed late with her team to prevent missing a deadline.

However, one day Marie's lack of time management skills finally caught up with her...

***Back to the story...

Her boss opened the door to the conference room where Marie was working with her team.

"Marie, can I speak with you for a moment?" Carla nodded her head towards the outside of the room.

Marie felt confused. Was she meant to be in a meeting with Carla? She didn't think so.

She'd missed the deadline for the multi-million dollar tender. She scoured the tender to see if she could save the situation. This mistake was worth millions to the company.

But Marie knew it could mean her job, too.

This wasn't the first time Marie had struggled with time management. But she never thought a mistake could be so disastrous.

As she walked to the meeting room that afternoon, trying to come up with a plan, she felt defeated.

When they sat down, Carla was direct.

"I'm sorry Marie, but if you miss anything else like this again, you're fired."

The blood drained from Marie's face.

"At least she didn't say I am fired," Marie thought.

Then Carla gave her an ultimatum...
