You can never be too prepared
I’m a to-do list person, but I never stick to them. Then I don’t know what do I do today with the tasks I didn’t complete yesterday. Do I re-write and start a new to-do list?
But I watched some of my colleagues and they taught me how important it was to be prepared for every part of my job. From meetings to reports, invoices to creating purchase orders, replying to urgent emails and everything in between. I learned that being over-prepared could really help you stand out and be present. It’s a sense of accomplishment to finish and cross tasks off that list. Reaching goals.
Follow your heart
And when typed this little sentence out I said it really slowly, slow motion, like…

I went on a journey that has taken me out of my comfort zone into an unfamiliar space. A friend called me brave and daring when I told her more than a year ago what I was about to start. In November 2018, I started with a fresh look and all the wonderful possibilities it could hold. In November 2018, I started a new second job! Was it worth it? For me it was; for the rest of the team I am not quite sure. They are the ones losing out though, definitely not me. I learnt a lot and have added something very valuable to my career life. I’m grateful and happy!
When you report to so many people, they manage you. Having a healthy positive relationship with all your bosses makes work life so much easier.
I’m not there for the canteen food and the beautiful glass building. Job satisfaction for me comes from enjoying my job, I love what I do. I love the people I work with and having a good boss and good relationship with her (them) matters a lot! It took a whole year to learn to work independently and far from most of them only seeing them once a week and still managing to stay present.
2020 what does it hold for me? Only time will tell I’m going into it with the same positive attitude and I will leave it in Gods hands. Something else I learned last year I talk to Him constantly and ask for His guidance before every hard task that I have to face ♥
