Received a couple of emails that rocked my morning.
I love my job. Don't get me wrong. The challenges that go with it is enough to keep me busy for a couple of years. Plus the issues are not the same everytime. Everyday, it's a different challenge.
What I hate about it is that the put me downs are too many and the fixer uppers are few. When we do something wrong, we are sure to receive notes from the higher ups asking us to find a resolution as soon as possible. When we do something great, we are just merely doing our job and a simple pat in the back will do. A good attitude about how one perceives the failures and successes in this job really helps. If my attitude is one that always goes to self pity mode, I would surely die of depression if I continue doing this job.
Maybe it's this way in all jobs. No one is really completely satisfied with what they are doing. I have always perceived any issue as a challenge, a venue for me to learn new things. But the longer I stay here, the higher it is in the organization that sends me nastygrams.
Maybe I am right. They just love me so much and have faith in me that they always give me the hard ones to figure out. And that the better I do at this job, the more they raise their expectations of me.
If only I can figure out this one...
