PROMOTED

I got promoted today at work. It’s a good feeling. I wasn’t there personally for the announcement but hey, I was active working at another company with the same title I just received. Life is so funny as times.

Have your ever being promoted at work? What’s the first time you thought after being promoted?

For me, as soon I am promoted, I am oh god, all eyes is going to be on to to hope I mess up. Promotions at any job for me is just weird, I know I was the guy good for the title, but never got it when I worked for it, it’s always after and no one else they wanted to promote came further, ha ha, Okay that could have been a joke and also could be true.

I do have to give it up to one manager in life that gave me the opportunity to be promoted 3 times in one year. He is going to be remember forever for taking a chance on me and let me do what I do well, which is take on the worse job in the workplace and blow it out the water in success.

I must admit, I do have an anxiety problem with climbing up the ranks in a company to a top position I want. It never works out well. I always tend to reach the position I wanted for a higher level at another company. Why is that though hmmm?

FEB 11TH

I spoke with a random guy in Rite Aid (a store) today. It felt good and unforced. I learned a lot today by the way upon meeting him. Real people matter and don’t judge a book by it’s cover. The guy played a good and fun joke to get my attention to later find out we share the same high school, and also practice the same reading techniques and how we both are masters at researching.

I was wearing an OBEY hat, and he approached me and said, “I shall obey you my master, what shall I do.” Now yes to a regular person, you might dismiss the guy for a corny attempt, but I played right along and said, “I command you to have a great day today and share with the world a big smile.” He then smiled and we both laughed and I shook his hand and said hello. He then explained why he said what he said and I realized oh snap I did have the hat on.

We then shared a 10-minute conversation about where to buy the hat, to working out, to also which school we went to. Maybe he knew me or remember me and I don’t but it was a fun and engaged conversation.

The deep part of the conversation was how it only takes about 20 minutes per day to read a few articles online to be a much smarter human and willing to share info with strangers to help benefit their lives. This is like one of the mantras I live by, so to see someone do the same back to me, was simply amazing. Today was special and I happy to happened to me.

I definitely had to write about today.
