December 7- My new Boss

Dear December,

I have a new Boss, a wonderful person. Someone who believes in me and encourages me, although sometimes might be critical and want proofs of my competence. Someone who stands by me and wants to see me succeed not just for me but because there is something I need to accomplish for all of us. Because if I do something constructive and beautiful, even small, I contribute to universal happiness.

I have known this person for years, and we haven’t always been close. In the past there have been issues between us. This person might have even tried to sabotage me at some point. It was because of the insecurities and the difficulty to trust.

But now this person has more experience and learned from past errors. Learnt to lead and how to trust and believe in the team.

Believe without being complacent is something that raises our standards.

This wonderful Boss is myself 🙂

P.S. Thanks for the suggestions of what makes a great boss: I am going to work on those I haven’t already 😉

December 6- The final countdown before the year ends!

Dear December,

I have been feeling overwhelmed with all the goals and tasks and time lacking, but somehow, this should motivate me instead of stressing me. Before I leave everything up to Santa, I should try my best to be nice.

Now, no excuses, there are 24 days left, and miracles can happen in a second. But in case some effort is needed, there is still plenty of time.

The first thing would be to see what is the most important, and then, be ambitious, but realistic. But realistic doesn’t mean not believing in myself and going for something I don’t even like.

I have already tried this, and if there is no change, I don’t want to put myself through it

For example applying for a job that is not related to my passions because it seems a good compromise. And then of course I do it half heartedly and someone else gets it.

Or, forgetting why I ever joined the Platform- my passion for art- and spent my energy on imagining scenes with the wannabe boss getting what he deserves 🙂

So it is better to be honest with myself:

What do you really want April?

What do you think yourself capable for? If you want it badly, maybe you need to become good enough for your dream!

Eliminate secondary goals and pick up the most important!

Come on April, pull yourself together and think outside of the box!
