Challenges, challenges, challenges

Friday, June 15, 2012

Two weeks ago yesterday I was told that I was going to act as AOIC (Assistant Officer in Charge) of my section and got a couple of hours of training the next day... only to find myself on Monday actually as the OIC (Officer in Charge) for the full 2 weeks while my OIC was gone.

It was a huge challenge to step up so suddenly to actually run Nurse Case Management. But for a few small glitches, I think I did pretty well. It was certainly a challenging couple of weeks. I was very nervous. But I also welcomed the challenges at one level. I think I did pretty good, and I learned some things too, both about what it is to be in charge and that I have a capacity to be quite flexible and work under considerable pressure.

This week I have also made great strides in getting back on track with my exercise and eating. I am really happy about that, because once I have success, it is easier to keep that momentum going.

So far this week I am 5 for 6 in both eating and exercise. I plan to make that 6 for 7 tomorrow!!

And it was kind of cool to watch Nick Wallenda walk the tightrope across Niagra Falls.

    Great that you were able to step up to that challenge, and succeed! Leadership is a challenge, and I think a good leader makes it look easy, but actually being in that position is so stressful! Good for you for taking it on and rising to the occasion!
