God reminded me of these words in Philippians 4:
“Let your reasonableness be known to everyone.” Other versions render, “Let your gentleness be evident to all.”
This time of year, technical teams are often stretched more than other seasons. They may receive requests to support additional Christmas and New Years events at various technical levels. Their phones may ring while they are with their families. They answer and hear, “Your projector isn’t working in Conference Room A.” After some troubleshooting they realize that a laptop isn’t plugged in. These last minute requests for technical support clearly indicate poor planning.
