Job hopping definitely allows us to meet people who ultimately teach and guide us to be stronger and better, not just into our work details, but in our day to day challenges.
As tradition, I received a goodbye card with messages from most of the finance peeps.
When I read their well-wishes, I smiled remembering at how they influenced me. Let me please share these influences randomly. Here I start:
A colleague insisted I had progressed a lot. I guess she means -- I worry less now, I showed less tension and less stress, I had not been staying late in the office, I can talk with confidence and I had been more positive in my outlook.
I credit her for instilling in me that (1) Family should come first, (2) Speak out what you feel, in a nice way, (3) Lift it all to Him.
Letting out my tears makes me handle my frustrations better.
Colleagues who demand high level of accuracy and analytical value create the most stress, pressure and tension, but they are the best teachers. I'd rather love them than hate them.
Shout for help when your basket is full. It's not a signal of in-ability but is ushering in the essence of teamwork.
Earning a position is not fully a matter of credentials or list of experiences, but by the confidence one exudes.
Working in a schedule-controlled (even to the hour) environment is just a matter of joining and flowing in the system. Once used to, it becomes less robotic, and makes one appreciate time management.
Constantly appreciating and rewarding the hard work of subordinates breeds motivation.
That's it, friends, thank you for joining me chronicle my journey I just walked by. =)
