Emotional Week

My first post of the New Year, it’s been a while since I’ve had a moment to give my blog some much-needed attention.

The past few months have been extremely busy, supporting two busy Executives takes a lot of time, you all know (calendaring, travel, expenses) just to name a few, times that by two. I want to be able to do more things that aren’t just tactical and make an impact. I get frustrated with myself when even the smallest things fall through the cracks, that isn’t how I work and my Executives losing faith in me is one of my worst nightmares.

Long story short, someone took credit for something that I did, which I know, isn’t new, but I became so angry and emotional about it, looking back I would have handled it completely differently, plus after talking it over with someone who I think VERY highly of, he totally put me in check (you know who you are).. I pretty much reverted back to my 21-year-old naive self and cried in my office and then in front of my boss.. not the best moment.

I need to remember:

  1. Keep Emotions out of it!
  2. Don’t take ANYTHING personally
  3. Do what it takes to get the task/project done.
  4. Don’t expect kudos for every little thing that you do.
  5. Do it all with grace and the highest level of professionalism.
  6. As EA’s, this is what we do!

On another note, I’m taking time to re-read Kelly Cutrone’s book If You Have to Cry, Go Outside AND OTHER THINGS YOUR MOTHER NEVER TOLD YOU. I read this back in 2009, time for a refresh.

BREATHE. And Let The Rest Come Easy.

  1. Hang in there and remember-what goes around comes around to those who take credit for someone else’s hard work. I’m sure all you do is going to pay off. Working hard and managing a blog speaks highly of you! Keep it up!
