I was charged today with bringing humor into our office.
My boss told me to make him laugh everyday because he tends to be too serious.
I can handle this task!
(I was already doing this anyway, but it’s good to know I have job security.)
The gears are turning in my head now…
Work just got even better for me!
I don’t know if my boss fully understands how exciting this new challenge is for me.
Sure, there’s plenty of “real” work to be done, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun, too.
And fun we shall have!
It’s a part of my job description now.
I’m working on a big project at work.
It’s one of those projects where many other projects will stem from completing this one task.
No pressure, right?
The spreadsheet is long and I have to toggle back and forth between two programs to gather information.
I keep telling myself, as my eyes cross from staring at the computer screen, that getting this task done right the first time will make my job so much easier in the long run.
And it’s true.
Sometimes the only way to get things done is to roll up your sleeves and dig in your heels.
Trust me. I tried to think of a way to avoid this project…
Is there a shortcut?
Jesus, please show me a shortcut!
There is simply no other way to move forward without this project being completed.
What I’m learning, though, is that going in with a good attitude is helping me move forward quickly.
If you’re facing a similar situation, don’t sit around pouting! Hating the project and your job will not help you at all.
We all have parts of our jobs that are not fun.
But since when does everything have to be about us having fun?
Get to work.
Do your best.
