Hi everyone. We are already in the second month of the year and things seem to be moving on fast.
It’s been a week since I change my job and somewhat a change in career path too. The style of work is completely different from what I’m used to. It needs some getting used to.
Since the beginning of my job life, I’ve always been accustomed to a very fast paced environment. Being in a client facing role always meant having to juggle a number of things in a day, not to mention numerous emails and phone calls. That is no longer the case. The activity is more project based and while there are tasks to be done on the projects, there’s more brainwork than anything else. There are definitely fewer meetings and less time spent travelling to customers since most people tend to visit my team instead.
Nevertheless, I am surprised that my day goes by just as fast and I’m leaving work just as late, if not later on some days. Although, the work is intense, I am to focus better and this has made me a much happier person.
I had been going through a phase where I genuinely felt like I was being stretched too thin. I had no focus, I was constantly being badgered by my boss, and I was frustrated. I am so glad all that is behind me now. I don’t believe the new job will not have its share of hiccups or issues but, I do feel more at ease and I can finally breathe again. I am so grateful for this change….
