Lunch meeting

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Tomorrow I have a very important lunch meeting. My team of 8 has been asked to have lunch with the three directors of our agency. A total of 600ish people work there, and it's really a honor to be asked to lunch. It can be a great opportunity for my career.

I'm finding it stressful for several reasons. First, there's the obvious issue of food. It's a catered thing, so I don't really have to worry about ordering, but I also don't have control of what is served. I know to be reasonable about portions, and make whatever good choices I can. But the idea of no control is stressful to me---I like to plan more consistently.

Also, the fact that it's a "big" meeting is difficult for me. I'm a fairly passive person, and while I'm pretty good at my job, I mostly prefer to be left alone at it. I get along really well with my team and my boss, and I am comfortable with them. Other people, especially important people, frighten me. I'm constantly terrified that I'll offend someone and get fired.

Anyway, fingers crossed that I do ok on all counts.

    I would not make it in that kind of job. My brain freezes when I'm stressed!
    I hope you have a terrific meeting & you are self possessed & confident!
    That wows the crowd!
    All the best.

    I'm sure you'll be fine. I understand being a little nervous though. I would be the same way.

    You'll do fine, just be yourself as that's what got you there. You'll be able to recognize the good food from the not so good food as you know what you need to do to keep and maintain that womanish figure. You're more than a conqueror and it is, a life style change! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
