week in review

nothing like a good ol’ crisis to help you understand your place in the world. okay, maybe crisis is a strong word. and, technically, the aforementioned “place in the world” really only relates the company for which I work. but, this week was definitely a turning point for me in my new job.

as was described in my midweek post, the week could have been one to break me. a lot of shit went wrong — like, a lot. luckily none of it was even remotely my or my team’s fault, but the impacts were still quite significant to us and the rest of the company. there were a lot of extra hours put in by a big groups of folks. and canceled meetings and deferred work that will definitely make the next few weeks tough.

despite all of that though, the situation provided a perfect opportunity for me to prove my self and test whether this really was the right place for me, company and job-wise. and, gratefully, I found I’m right where I need to be doing just what I need to do — a discovery that was much-needed and extremely timely.

“When you keep searching for ways to change your situation for the better, you stand a chance of finding them. When you stop searching, assuming they can’t be found, you guarantee they won’t.” ~Angela Duckworth, GRIT
