I’m in the process of applying for new jobs within my organisation as part of the restructure. It’s interesting though…most of the examples of my skills and experience I’m using in my applications are not from my current role. I knew I was taking a bit of a step backwards with this job but this process has really highlighted it. I’ve had a nice time but I guess it’s time to start challenging myself again (not so it breaks me though).

We had a work team planning session today. This is the first time I’ve been in a high performing team since…let me see…2005. Everyone gets on well. There are no dysfunctional personalities. Where there is disagreement it’s discussed in a non-aggressive way. My new team is fantastic!
I’ve been in my new job for 4 weeks now. In that short period of time people have said to me things like:
“No you don’t need to show me that report. You’re brainier than me and I trust that you’ve done a great job.”
“I’m so glad you’ve joined our team. You’re bringing such valuable skills and experience and already you’ve made a huge difference.”
“Thank you so much for helping me. You’ve made it so much easier for me to do my job.”
I mean, seriously, I have never worked in a place where I have felt so appreciated!! I wasn’t really planning to stay for that long because my friends and family are in a different city but if things keep going the way they are I might reconsider. This is a great job with great people and that doesn’t come along every day.
I started doing pottery classes a couple of weeks ago and I’m loving it. It’s so relaxing and I love the feeling of making something that I might potentially actually use. I say this because my first efforts were not that great, but I’m so far really happy with the dishes and bowl I made last week (they just require some finishing off). This could be a great new hobby for me I think, and one that will mean I get to interact with other interesting creative people.
Now I’m in a new job I get home at a reasonable time. I leave work at around 5.30pm or sometimes before depending on what time I started. At my last job I used to work until between 7pm and 8pm. I was usually exhausted by the time I got home. Now I have an extra 2 to 3 hours of extra time that I can do all sorts of things with (I just have to decide what…).
By August 2013:
1. I want to start exercising and I want exercising to be an important part of my daily routine.
But weirdly for something I want I can’t seem to motivate myself to actually do this. Any ideas? Anyone??
2. I want a hobby. I want something to be interested in outside of work and to look forward to doing.
I have a few ideas up my sleeve and will look into them over the next couple of weeks.
