Some Ramblings at Work

Lately, work has been a dread. I dragged my feet to work almost everyday.

Not that I do not enjoy what I do, as I do (at least the main part of it). But things have not got any better, if not worse after the new term.

I have lost my enthusiasm for my job as I see us spending more time boot-licking and politicking when we should be focusing and spending our energy on delivering our KPIs if not exceedingly.

I really do not enjoy doing things just for the sake of doing things, which do not contribute to the growth of the organisation or truly benefit our clients in the long term. Everything we do seems to be reactive and not proactive.

I am almost reaching my second year with my present employer and I want to believe that my time there is almost up. Though I know what my next step should be, I am still waiting for the next door to open and his cue for me to leave.

Surprise by this post? I thought of showing the more human side of me that also experiences frustrations and disappointments in the humdrum of life. Ha ha…

Hmmm… I think its time to really plan for my exit. This recession might be a good period to take a sabbatical break.

  2. I know how you feel, work have become a routine – people like you and me become like robot. By Jesus once say, I am the light of the world. I think he mean the world become a better place to live in because of him. All the work your boss have given you are reactive. It is your perception that is proactive. Instead do the work the same way, is there a better to work thing out. How can I increase my effectiveness?
    If you think that exit is a better alternative, maybe God have a higher purpose for you. Be patient and have faith – look out for God’s clue in your destiny.
    For your co-worker, look at this way; if they are not against you, they are for you. For obstacles come your way, what don’t kill you, strengthen you.

  3. We are but humans. Nothing too surprising to read so long as you are willing to share. May the Lord strengthen you during this period of recession as you take your sabbatical.

  4. What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun? All things are full of labour; man cannot utter [it]: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
    The thing that hath been, it [is that] which shall be; and that which is done [is] that which shall be done: and [there is] no new [thing] under the sun. Ecc1

  5. hey thanks for being honest 🙂
    you are a brudder that many of us admire for the remarkable work that God has done in your life! the past versus the present and glorious future that God has for you.

    “and whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord not for men, it is the Christ Lord you are serving.”

    though we may be disheartened (me too, sometimes lar) by the bulls****ting , bootlicking, wayang, office politicking etc etc etc etc etc that we sometimes see in the workplace (sigh), (haha!) it is the world after all. Stay connected to God and never forget his purpose!! stay connected to the Vine!!
