It’s funny…..I’ve been in my current role in my job for 4 1/2 of my 5 years, and I’m OK with that. Oh, don’t get me wrong….I have applied for various positions before, but I know I couldn’t handle being a manager, as I’m sure there would be pressure to lose my individual fashion quirks just to “fit into the club”, so I opted not to pursue that path again. I thought about being a NOC Analyst, but after one of my friends went in there, and demoted himself back down within a MONTH speaks volumes about the environment in that sector.
I like what I do, and where I’m at. I’ve been able to speak directly with just about every level of the organization without fear of retribution, and I guess I’m just not as grumpy about when changes take place, because I’m grateful to have a good job.
I know there are those out there who will disagree with me, and that’s fine….I don’t exoect everyone to agree with me on this. I’ve been disagrred with before, so it’s nothing new.
So I am in my own personal comfort zone. It took me a while to get there, bit I did it…..yes I did!
