While this organized chaos makes up ~ 25% of my day, it's enough to make anyone frustrated...people are disengaged, disgruntled, and feel like human
cattle capital. There is a significant absence of the spirit of participation, so much so that it's now contracted out. The only way people get involved is by getting
assigned to it. It's definitely not a formula for improved morale.
As of late, I've been diligently working to put my 25% of this chaos into a rational system. I absorbed words a very popular speaker told me - she said, "...your job (9-5) should be viewed as your investor..." This was as a result of her efforts in encouraging the start-ups/entrepreneurs in the room. Our take away was to understand that our day job is a temporary solution to our long term vision of building our businesses. Personally, I found this to be an effective way to help put things into perspective.
Like anyone else living this human experience, some days are better than others...seasons come around. On those days where things are so politically charged, I've chosen to speak my position and move on. If I'm heard, that's great! If I'm not, now that I have such low expectations, my hope is that it doesn't bother me as much. The only thing I have control over is the manner I choose (because it is a choice) to respond/react. On some level, I truly believe this adversity is meant to teach me something. While I try to figure it out, my get right is to continue to remind myself of the path I'm suppose to walk and the road map I've built to get there to achieve continued success in my most important roles as Wife, Mom, Entrepreneur.
Anyone else feel like this? I can't be the only one....
