I don't know how is it that me and my best friends can do this.
I only have two best friends so far, and we share the same opinion and ethics on work.
Our whole entire livelihood depends on our job. The only reason why we are able to do all these things that we are doing in life is because we have a job. The only reason why we are at this particular point in life, is because we have a job to depend on.
A job we enjoy doing.
Well, sometimes, my job is not that enjoyable. Sometimes it's a chore.
Managerial is hugely misunderstood by most people.
A good manager do not order people around without knowing the essence of the 'order'. As a matter of fact, it's the total opposite.
A manager should know, on a high level, what the order is all about, how should it be delivered, how to track it and how to assess it.
It's not difficult to manage a team of agents (individual agendas, aside), but to manage a team that consists of Leads and analysts, that's something else.
Personally for me, Work must NEVER mix with your personal life. Whatever personal shit that happens in your life must be pushed aside when you are at work. I guess I am lucky that I have a degree of flexibility and options to work from home, when I don't feel like coming to work.
Yes, sometimes I mull over the fact that I am single, the one person I like is going to leave soon and all that crap. On these days, I function better at home. I function better working via emails and messaging.
I foresee that to happen a lot over the next couple of months.
But, I guess, I put it down on my personal work ethics, and possibly my ego.
I cannot, will not, NEVER compromise my work with my personal fuck ups.
Shit happens, leave it behind, and move the fuck on.
And as a rule of thumb... attrition will happen in operations. There is no such thing as 0 attrition, ever. Operations or not.
So, here I am, crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.
