“Sometimes you just have to toot your own horn. Otherwise, nobody will know you’re a-comin.”
My mood of the day? I am conflicted as to how I feel. Work? I sometimes feel invisible; I don’t feel validated. Possibly my spirit is brought on by many emotions, and perhaps it has nothing to do with work.
Yesterday, at work and by the way, I been working from home. The team I belong to, we were brainstorming on a small project related to the COVID-19, and in preparation to reopen our workplace. I was tasked with the research portion of it, which I love to do. I went online, gathered the data, and submitted my findings. Long story short, I was not getting a “great job, ” just crickets. If I did not do a good job, feedback is welcome.
Anyway, I had to revise my submission. I did, and I submitted it this morning, I did receive a thank you. I felt better, not great, but better!
My lesson? What is important is how you feel and how you will handle the task given. You can choose to roll over or make your voice heard positively.
