I really want to do a good job at work. Whenever the boss calls me into her office though, my first thought is always, “Uh, oh, I hope I didn’t do anything wrong.” In previous jobs, that request might have been to correct some thing I did, but in this new job, it’s more often to communicate what’s going on. My boss(es) also tell me, frequently, how they appreciate my professionalism, discretion, accountability, implied memory. Certainly more than any other job I’ve had.

I used to tell my mother that it doesn’t matter how much you make, what matters is that you like where you work.

I’m glad to say, I like where I work.

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
