Alhamdulillah. 2010 is here.
I did a re-cap on what 2009 has brought for me. InsyaAllah the draft is ready, but I’ll post about it later.
I hope 2010 will be a better year for me. Work wise, there are already some good signs.
1. End of year appraisal – I did OK I guess. I was expecting a loooooooooong lecture from my boss considering I couldn’t achiveed what has been targeted. Maybe my boss understood what a difficult year it was for me. Being transferred to the new dept, fitting in, problemactic soon to retired staff, double workload etc. She only wanted me to build my leadership and delegating skills. Oh, and be more proactive. Heh. Thank you boss!
2. I no longer need to ‘menanggung tugas’ for the librarian who is on study leave. I was in-charge of 2 job specs for 6 months. My original job scope was more on promoting the library, contacting prospective clients from corporate sectors.. all the marketing work. On top of that I have to handle publication work, the ‘menangung tugas’ part. It really took a heavy toll on me, mentally and physically. Hubby had once advised me to see a shrink – learn to manage my stress. How to when I was too busy (or too much procrastinating? heh)
3. In the meeting just now, my boss announced a minor re-shuffling in the department. I am now in charged of the publications for the library ONLY – newsletter, annual reports, website etc. ALhamdulillah. In the 6 months ‘menanggung tugas’ I like doing it way more than my original job scope. So, I’m taking this positively. I hope with this changes, I can perform my work better and be more motivated.
It’s true what they say, it’s much easier to do things that you have passion in, that you love. Maybe I was way too sucky in marketing (not a people person by nature!!). Now I can sharpen my writing skills! I’m an editor y’all!!
Wish me luck. And pray that 2010 will bring more good news for me. 🙂
Adios for now.
