Competition in the work place

I really love my job, it is probably the best one I have ever had.

It is strange because when I got the new job it was a step up from the old one.  I have more responsibility and more money.  But unlike my other job I am back at the bottom – basically I am the office junior and have to do all the tedious work that comes with that.

Vision…

I had been told I had been ready for the next level for the last three months.

The only problem was where I worked has recently had a freeze on recruitment, so I didn’t have any opportunities to move up.

So I grew restless and impatient and decided to look for work elsewhere.

It never felt quite right as I filled in the application – I struggled through it even though it didn’t feel right.  To try and make me feel better I asked those close to me their thoughts. Continue reading “Vision…”

So don’t tell them what you can do – show them!

But how do we show off to people what we can do without coming across as a child wanting validation?

Dealing with the negative

I bumped into someone from my old team the other day.  With her was my replacement who had begun the role a month ago.

 I am not rude and didn’t want to blank her, so I began talking to her so that she wasn’t just sat back observing our conversation.  I introduced myself and asked how she was finding the job.  Her response surprised me.

Current Goals April 2016

GOALS FOR APRIL

A while ago I talked about having a System.

This was a process of replacing my goals under the Scott Adams logic that goals are for losers, you need to have a system.

In someways I do have a system but saying “I will work hard to achieve a promotion” and “I will maintain a regular exercise routine” just didn’t cut it. Continue reading “Current Goals April 2016”
