I thought I’d lose sleep, not be organized, and rush around all morning. Instead I had time to meditate, pray, and eat my breakfast. I do not like to rush in the mornings. I also do not like to get up early. You can imagine this often puts me at cross purposes. Today was perfect.
Although first days are rarely my favorite…because I don’t like orientations and I have a hard time with long periods of nothing to do…today was nice. Everyone was lovely to me and I felt very wanted and welcome.
My new boss told me today that my title might need to change from Director to Technical Advisor. What he doesn’t know is that I have actually said the words “The only job I’m interested in at Amazon is Technical Advisor.” Funny how without even trying or asking, I got the title of the role I’ve wanted for quite some time. It may not make any sense to anyone, but ultimately this is the role that I am best at. It is the thing that I am super good at doing and it is the job I want. It is also a nod to how hard I’ve worked (often for little recognition) to understand the technology that I was responsible for. I’m super excited about this change!! Woot!!
