My regular day starts by cleaning the break room and front office, checking voicemails, attending meetings, logging mail in and out, writing letters confirming appointments, making phones call, summarizing meetings, scanning and uploading documents, and paying bills all while I’m supposed to greet clients, answer the phone, and file very important documents.
I know I can do this! I’m strong, educated, independent, and very organized, but I’m having a hell of a time figuring out what tasks I should start and finish first. I want to throw the stack of papers that accumulate every second on my desk up in the air like the actors do with money in the movies.
However, today one of my bosses complimented me on how I was catching on so quickly, my work ethic and my organization skills. I think I need to look in the mirror and as corny as it sounds talk myself out of this ridiculous feeling. I need to relax, slow down, and enjoy that fact that I’m learning.
They hired me for a reason, right?
