It doesn't take much.

Monday, October 21, 2013

Just got home from my 2 days a week 3-11pm job. I have been there about a month. It is very physically challenging but also rewarding. The day is so busy that the time flies by. At this job you are on view all the time by the owner and administration. I got the greatest compliment from the owner/administrator today. She told me I was a great nurse and would like me to be there full time. Like 5 days a week. I was flattered. It is so different there. I am not working any harder than I always work. The difference is the bosses can see it because the nurse's are in total view at all times. So I go from being a not so good nurse from bosses who never see me work to a great nurse from a boss that always sees the kind of work I do. If ever I am at a place where the boss makes a judgement about me without seeing me in action I will tell them to watch me then make up your opinion. Too many times I have listened to people criticize me without ever seeing me in action. It is a lesson learned. And I can be thankful to this new job for teaching me that. Cheers, Keith

    Awesome! So there really ARE bosses/supervisors/overlords (LOL) out there who make fair judgments!

    Working and being appreciated gives you wings!
    Like you, sometimes I would have liked to have had my bosses to witness the stressful conditions of certain situations. But, I think, it is harder to compliment than to criticize.

    I'll share something with you, that might make you feel better about your previous posts: I am a painter, and I would think that I am good at it . However, I have noticed that most of the time, during exhibitions, viewers approach artists' work with the expectation of finding something wrong , rather than seeing the beauty or the meaning of the work.
    That derives from unsecurity in their own art appreciation . At first, it annoyed me, and hurt my feelings, now I just ask pointed questions as their reasons of offering their criticisms so freely.
    Guess what! Confrontation is highly rewarding, as 90% of the time they don't know what to say, and the last 10% comes from connoisseurs and then the comments are very constructive.
    Being assertive is also demanding that explanations must follow a criticism, otherwise how can you improve on your work? emoticon

    It always makes a great difference to work somewhere where you are appreciated. Most people really don't realize what a difficult job nursing actually is. They think you give a shot, take a BP and help get people into wheelchairs. Little do they know!! Sounds like you are doing a great job at a great job!! emoticon

    Glad to hear it is working so well for you!!
