Hi everyone! As you read this post, I should be wandering the streets of TOKYO 东京, map in hand, hunting for lunch… haha! ;D This post was scheduled in advance since I knew I’d have intermittent Internet access in Japan (see how much I care about you?). Anyways, today’s post is about 5 things I wish I knew when I started my first job!
If, like me, you have been in the workforce for years, you would have probably (on multiple occasions) looked back and thought, ”Wow, how did I survive all those years?”, and that is a good sign because it means you have grown and advanced. Through working, I have learnt so much, I am a completely different (and much better!) person now than I was when I first started. I never once regret going through all those things which made me who I am today. In fact, I wouldn’t go back in time to change anything even if I could.
Even though I wish I knew these things when I started, I guess nothing comes without experience. So let this post serve as a reminder to us all, or perhaps to amuse you for a bit. ;P
“You’ve seen the ‘I AM GRATEFUL’ sticker on my keyboard; now meet my phone! Every time I answer my calls, I read this message. It reminds me that I should let go of drama and speak calmly. Works like a charm! :) Follow me on Instagram for more!”
