Coping with challenges

I have been in my new job for 4 months now. Today I got a call from my old job. The lady who had taken over from me had not been able to cope with the challenge. She was being replaced by a new person, and had gone off sick in protest. Today she handed…

Maintaining focus

I came across the above quote on Linkedin this morning. I like it. When I went to check it out on the Tony Robbins site, it was about attracting the energy of the universe, positive thoughts attracting positive results, and negative thoughts attracting more negativity. I get it, but that is not what I thought…

4.1.21, back to work- freedom.

Today was the official start back after the New Year break. Everyone was in a good mood, wishing each other Happy New Year, and getting back in to the groove. For me this return was so nice, because it was relaxed. I have not been able to have a relaxed start to the year, or…

day 16

my co-worker did not come to the office this morning, she chose to stay in bed. Lucky her. I, on the other hand, suddenly had an abundance of work came in. My boss called me and asked me to summarise all the measures that Switzerland is taking to help companies at this time into one…

day 7- working with passion.

Monday again, and another week of home office stretches ahead. I am still enjoying it, I feel more rested, but that could also be something to do with not being out on my evening activities as well I suppose. I am so lucky to be able to stay home and stay safe. I do really…

positive thoughts

my last blog post is a while ago now, when I was looking for another job. I am still looking. There has been one interview, for a job I would have loved, but other than that, I have seen nothing that grabbed me. Going pro on Xing has also not really helped, as Xing still…

preparing for Christmas

I had the day off today. It was wonderful. So nice to stay home, and just chill. I really should do it more often. Work is in that period of the run up to Christmas, when everything has to be finished, and it seems they want everything done by the 15th of December, so everyone…

processing frustration

two things happened today to cause me some frustration, and both involved dealing with men in my life, one being my boss and one being my husband, and both were connected to processes or lack of them. The boss and I had a bit of a culture clash today with a surreal discussion about how…

in praise of home office

Today I took a home office day. They are not really encouraged at our place, but it was so good. I could spend some extra time in bed, I did not have to dress up, nor take the train. That daily commute is so tiring, and such a lot of time. I saved nearly 2…
