Monday didn't start off that well. But that's no surprise, is it?
Truth be told, my Monday started off bad because my Sunday ended bad. I went to bed in pain around 11:30pm or so. An hour later I sent a text to my husband begging him to bring me a couple of Tylenol. Thankfully, he did and the 2 little pills worked their magic. An hour later the pain was subdued and I was asleep.
Then the alarm went off and the rest of my day was chaos.
From 9am - 5pm, the phones rang off the hook and a steady stream of people made their way through our doors to conduct business. There was also mail, email, and faxes that required my attention.
Oh, and did I mention that we are short-staffed because one of my co-workers quit?
And it's Monday.
One would have thought it was the first of the month rather than the middle.
Nevertheless, there is a positive to be found in the midst of chaos.
Transition can be a good thing.
Today, transition meant learning how to do my job better. It meant that I had to focus on what I was doing rather than just going through the motions. It required me to hone my communication skills. My co-workers and I were forced to work together as a team to ensure that the work got done without killing each other in the process.
This week and the coming weeks will be a continual time of transition. But I choose to embrace the chaos in order to learn new things, to better myself, and to make my work environment a great place to be.
What was one good thing that happened during your day? What do you think about transition - is it good or bad?
