On Change

So this week I started a new project at work.  This got me to thinking about change.  I was told about all of this happening two days before it happen.  I was filled with all sorts of mixed emotions.  I was excited and nervous, happy and scared all at the same time.  I knew that there would be sacrificed and pay offs.  Let me explain in more detail

We had a customer that was looking for an onsite tech.  We didn’t want to just hire anyone off the street.  We wanted someone with our company DNA ingrained in them (ie: me).   So I was asked to go and work at this customer’s site full time.  Leaving behind the safety and security of my office.  The place where I could just shout for help.  The place I had already learned so much.  I had just gotten used to this idea and thought I’d be OK.  Then people began telling me they wanted to make sure I was comfortable with everything…well I was until you asked! I began to have a mini panic attack.  I had no idea what I was going to be walking into.  Was this place complete chaos or would there be nothing to do? Would the people there resent me? Would they be nice?  I honestly had no idea.

I show up early on my first day out, my typical MO.  I walked in nervously and met with my onsite boss.  Turns out she is pretty cool.  Very laid back and trusts me to do my job.  It’s a nice feeling.

I guess my whole point in all this is there is no point in worrying about change.  There isn’t much you can do to stop it.  It’s going to happen the way it does.  Sometimes it works out in our favor.  Sometime it doesn’t.  The only thing we can control is how we react to it.  It’s easy to freak out and lose control but if we just keep a level head we have a better view of the situation and perhaps see it for what it really is as opposed to this mountain when it’s really just a speed bump.

Now what big changes do you have coming up?  How are you going to handle them?

PS.  Sorry it’s late.  I haven’t had much time this week learning all the new systems to sit and write much 🙂  At least I got it done on the same day 🙂
