I Too Am Terrific
We had some pretty significant renovations at my job about six weeks ago. In addition to patching and painting walls, we got some new office furniture. To accommodate for the additions, we had to move our office equipment to a different section to avoid clutter in our lobby. I sit in the ‘front office’ aka the newly renovated customer service area, along with the Director and his Assistant. Why did the Assistant just walk out of his office over to the empty spot where the copier used to sit and say “where the hell’s the copy machine?” My inside voice was screaming “DUDE! its been gone about 6wks..where the hell have you been?” And he’s been at work every day..no leave or absences–well, maybe some absent mindedness, but I digress.
OMG I need to get paid six-figures so that I can have the luxury of not paying attention to any of the small stuff that happens around me; and my gut tells me that management pays about as much attention to us ‘little people’ as the furniture they sit their Assets on. Moral of the story? Throughout the ridiculousness and foolishness that you may encounter from day to day, know your worth; and if you don’t like your current situation, put a plan in place immediately so you can change it. Be smart about it, and don’t just ‘up and quit!’ Show up on time, and don’t go off on nobody! Slow, deep breaths work. Remember, you need that gig to get you to the next phase!
My prayer for today, said in one breath and with extreme passion and fervor: (Take Deep breath now) “Dear God PLEASE let this website take off and become a household name so I can have a career that I LOVE to do and it won’t even feel like work and I can do it from home..from my own bed some mornings–just until I get moving good–’cause Lord you know I’m a lil slow in the mornings, but I’m a work in progress and this will allow me to take better care of myself and kids!”…Inhale, and I’m out.
