“It’s easy to now say we did a good job. Proud of our efforts. Happy with the way we collaborated. But, looking back, every step of the way felt like a battle.”
This is normal
It’s normal to feel as though people are not listening to you.
It’s normal to feel as though finding the right solution is a process of intense negotiation and debate. Good things don’t come easy. Patience.
Get used to it…
Making progress at work
I find that I spend a lot of my time worrying about work. I often sit still on a Sunday night staring off into space organising my thoughts for a discussion at work on Monday. It’s both exciting and exhausting.
Caring about my job
It’s a real pain caring about the work that I do. Trying to find a happy medium. Listening. Caring about others.
Stepping away from an implementation discussion that doesn’t end with an agreement is a real challenge. It’s stressful. It’s difficult to hold off and wait.
Maybe everyone feels like no one is listening at times. Perhaps that is normal.
