Dress for the job you want

I was watching a programme earlier and they were talking about the woman dressing for the career she wants rather than the one she has. This tied in with my thoughts earlier today when I was at work. I handed over some work and asked someone to do something and was told that it should be the line managers responsibility. We are quiet in my team at the moment and the issue is definitely a HR one, so I suppose the difference is that I dress and think for the job I want, not the one I have. Having always done a higher level/ more demanding role in the past (before having my kids and taking this part-time role) I still have the same mentality of getting the job done and ensuring the customer knows they are king. It just reminded me today that not everyone is like me and that some people are quite happy to dress for the job they have, because in fact that is the one they want. Do not get me wrong, there is nothing bad about this and I am not putting them down, it is just interesting to see how different people function.

I really find it hard to understand why some people get hung up with apportioning blame and wanting to know who made an error rather than the bigger issue of why the error was made and how we are dealing with it to ensure it is rectified this time and does not happen again. I have noticed changes in myself in the last year or so, especially since being back at work. I am enjoying my role being more supervisory again and having to take on different tasks. Also taking that overall helicopter view again is interesting.

I don't think there is a real point to today's blog entry (lol) but I did find it interesting to realise how much I am now enjoying my work and that I have yet again started to think about the future and my career options. I will try not to get too hung up on this as God may have other plans for me in a more Christian based vocation...................I will wait on the Lord and see.
