When you step out of the usual…
I have learned that people are completely ridiculous. That the general public seem to think they can treat people who serve others like pieces of trash is quite frankly appalling. That businesses do actually have to post signs saying verbal abuse of staff is not tolerated because the general public don’t think twice about verbally abusing the person they are facing – who incidentally had nothing to do with the situation the client is currently in they were just the unfortunate soul who was working at the front desk.
I learned exactly what I bring to the ‘Table’ as it were when it comes to getting the job done – regardless of what people say, I have the skills still…and no amount of time is going to change that; nor will a piece of paper enhance that – and that getting the job done without fan fair gets noticed.
I have learned that contract work isn’t as bad as I once thought and that full-time at one company for an extended period of time isn’t as appealing as it’s made out to be.
I have learned that even if the ‘Captain’ of the ‘Ship’ is a complete twit; the ‘Crew’ can still get the job done if enough of the ‘Crew’ knows what they are doing.
I have learned that when you change your ‘course’ those around you will sometimes try and change you back to your old heading…but stay the ‘new course’ for it may be the adventure of a life time.
