Welcome To A Weird Place For Me

December 7th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

So I handed in my two weeks notice at my job. I do not have another job. I actually am unsure what to do, but though I like my boss, I like my co-workers, the job is not for me. A few years ago I would have stayed, kept at it, tried to fit in more, been unhappy, and just gotten depressed. Today although I realise I have stayed too long(I should have quit in August), I gave it my best try. And now I am satisfied, that I am doing the right thing by quitting.

I have learnt a lot about myself and how I work and how I would like to go forward. Firstly, I would prefer to work on a team, with regular collaboration. I would like to learn from someone, get given a direction, and if I go off course they notice, because we are in regular communication.

I learnt I am very organised, I am able to take charge, I do not shy away from delegating to others, and I do take notes, lots of notes. At first I was worried as I seemed the only one writing stuff down, and referring, back to my notes, now, as I am passing my knowledge on, I am immensely grateful.

I also learnt I like planning, thinking things out beforehand, instead of just diving it, and now I understand a lot more about how the business world works.

So the experience has been invaluable to me.

But the jumping without a net is scary, I know I am a good employee, I get stuff done, I do my tasks, I look for more productive ways to work, I listen and I work hard. So I am hopeful I will find a new job soon.

Where am I?
