We’re approaching the end of four weeks of training for the new position and I am pretty optimistic about it.
Stayed within the same company so my tenure and benefits haven’t been affected so that has been a significant bonus.
Ask me what my gut feel is for this and I’ll tell you it really looks good and say I am relatively nervous too.
That is the joy of the unknown because for the moment I have few responsibilities but that will change soon. I am trying to enjoy this time but it is not easy because of the unknown and lack of control.
So every day I focus on what I can control and do my best to let the rest go because it just sucks time and energy out of me.
Some days I am good about it and some days less good. I suppose the primary issue is some of the changes I feel are so profound it is hard not to be impacted by them.
I try to make a game out of it where I compete against myself and work on mental toughness because the more times I beat myself the bigger the win.
That may sound awkward but the meaning to me is clear and for this I am the only one who matter but I would be lying if I said there aren’t moments where I want a hug and a smile that makes it clear I have support.
No reason to try to be tough all the time.
