Is This A Test?


I was scheduled to take today off. I had big plans. I was going to bring my dog and a big stack of magazines to the lake. Then I got an email about a budget review meeting. I squashed my vacation day because I need to prepare. This has been one of those weeks. I won’t bore you with the details. I will just say I’m used to having a job without any challenges. That’s what happens when you do the same thing for 20 years. It’s easy! Now, not so much. Learning something new is stressful. It feels like a test! A very difficult, all consuming, mind boggling test. I need to remind myself it will not always be like this. But it’s also an amazing experience! I have learned so much already. I have successfully accomplished tasks I used to avoid. Today is a sacrifice. I believe we all need to make sacrifices to get to something better. I have many more lake days in my future. Today I will pass my test with flying colors!

    Believe me, getting off auto-pilot is good for you mentally and intellectually. Your great attitude also shows that you’re not “done” with your career.

  3. Preparation is often a key to my own success if for no other reason than at least I feel prepared ( whether or not I ended up being prepared).
