So, I’ve had a couple weeks or so to digest my promotion at work and to start assuming more of my new duties. And it’s going decently so far.
I mean, it does rather suck doing my old job, my heart attack co-workers job, AND parts of my new job. But at least the days are going by quickly.
And I will say, the new power that had come with my promotion is kind of… Intoxicating.
I’m the same person with the same skill set, but some magic switch was flipped and now people are flicking to me for decision-making. Sure that means additional stress (am I making the right call, etc).
But it also feels good.
It’s kind of like finallyhaving my education and skill set validated and being put to use. I feel like I’m justifying my paycheck and being a valuable asset to the company.
And that feels pretty good, I must say.
