Today is worse than a Monday

Excuse me while I whine for a minute.

I have a headache. I don’t want to be at work today. I don’t feel like doing anything. I have not accomplished anything today. I really think that I need to start unplugging while I am at work. I have IM running, Twitter running, email notifications, the phone. It seems as though something pops up or makes a noise on my screen every few seconds. It is impossible for me to concentrate.

Then there is work. I’m just not motivated today. I have the thought that all the hard work I have done could be pulled out from under me in the blink of an eye with the changes in my organization. I need an attitude check.

Tomorrow I have a full calendar. I won’t even be in my office for more than a few minutes.

Do you ever have days like this? How do you get through them?


A Case of the Mondays

Not much to report so far. It’s Monday after all. My mentor and I have been bouncing a lot of posts back and forth about alternate career options since I am in the midst of a reorganization and unsure of my job status. One of my assignments is to interview people who have a job that I am interested in. So I will be looking for people to interview.

Right now I am preparing for a meeting with my manager about the reorganization. My mentor had some great advice for me on this that I will paraphrase.

Stay positive. Even though I may want to vent this is not the time for it.

I have so many frustrations right now I don’t even know where to start. If you’ve ever been through a reorganization I’d love to hear comments on how you managed to get through it? Were you better off in the end? Or worse off?

I’m hoping this experience will give me a chance to grow and move on to the perfect position for me.
