What a Valentines Day!
Have you ever had a day that, at the end of it, you are not sure if it was good or bad?
Today I had one of those days. I had to reign someone in and let someone go. I had to allow something new and disallow something old. I had to get decisive and unpopular, and I got to feel empathy and demonstrate all the qualities I hold dear.
I have very few pecadillos. I know I get pissy about 10 pieces of paper being held together with 8 staples, each one of which cut my fingers.............I digress.
I believe the only thing you can believe in is your own integrity.
I believe that a work ethic is something that is either in you, or it's not.
I believe that everyone has "issues" but if you are conscientious, there should be no conflict.
I believe that you should finish the work. Deadlines should never be an issue if you work smart instead of fast..
(Aside, I had an Eight Grade Home-EC teacher who told me something: I am a lazy person, therefore I strive to do things right the first time, because I am just too lazy to do it over again")
I believe that you work as a team. No man is an island, right?
I believe that if you like what you do, and who you work with, life is just easier. It is up to you, however, to be approachable.
I am so optimistic, and surely know that I have so much to learn. I think as long as my head and heart are in the right place. The "corporate" structure is no different.
Will it make me a better accountant/problem solver/supervisor? Not sure yet.
But you, will be the first to know!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(alright, right after "the other half" has the whole diatribe, in three part harmony).
Happy Valentine's Day!!!!!
