Last Friday my line manager and I finalized my performance objectives for the rest of the year, and I’ve received feedback from her about how I was doing for the past four months. So far, so good. She likes how I’m focused and how I’m proactive about the goals I’ve listed. Her only negative feedback was that I’m too “segurista” at work that I have to be completely sure about what I’m doing before I do it. I rarely take risks with the issues and I never go on a hunch about how a problem can be solved, eventhough my hunch about it is pretty strong. Haha. So true!
Anyway, last week was a pretty good week at work, eventhough Monday was horrible and I was at the brink of a depression. Haha. I managed to get through that without much shopping damage. Had to go about it the way I dealt with depression at Safeway——cakes and ice cream for dessert after lunch. Haha. I love it.
I’ve found a wonderful way to deal with work stress—-take it one day at a time. :) I’ve also started taking down a lot of notes I can use as reference for the same issues during month-end. I really want to get AAA rating on my performance appraisal at the end of the year!! Focus, Sarah, focus. Remember your other goal of being of the world’s top 10 powerful women by 2018. Eyes on the prize!!
