Hard to believe that it is already early February. This year has been going so fast, furiously getting the team aligned on priorities, taking on many additional areas of responsibility, and trying to also remember that there is a life outside of work.
Since my new boss joined the company the middle of last year, I’ve been greatly re-energized and my flirting with other jobs has stopped. There is a bit of underlying stress, though. So much to do and lots of expectations to show rapid results.
Chatting with a friend, he remarked that I seem to always be doing something, never just chilling. I guess that is my nature. My way of relaxing is to just replace one activity with another.
I completely sympathise with this post. But I will give you the same advice I’m trying to give myself. Try to find some “you” time whether it’s just listening to a podcast or going for a walk. It’s so easily to fill our time with more work but moments of calm help us rejuvenate. 😊
I must be the opposite of you and Sheldon lol Glad to hear that things at work have been better.
I’m glad you feel re-energized at work. Good luck and keep a healthy work life balance!
