Don’t forget the mission

I started a new job two months ago, and it’s fair to say that the last few weeks have been busy, stressful, tiring but a lot of fun. I decided a few months ago that I needed a new challenge and something to test me. Before I took this role I had turned down two other offers because they didn’t excite me,

This role was in an organisation that had decided to build a new I.T team in an new location due to a verity of factors. It meant there was going to be a lot of work to do and challenges ahead but that excited me. Plus the organisation is a not for profit working in the social housing sector, and is doing a lot of positive work.

Today it’s been a tough day both at work and personally and I have just found myself feeling a little sorry for myself. Then I thought about some of the people I have met in the last 8 weeks and thought you know what I have a roof over my head, food, family and been able to buy Christmas presents for loved ones. There are people out there who are not so lucky.

Then I found myself remembering I knew there were going to be days like this and that’s what I signed up for and that I need to remember the mission of improving the I.T service that we provide to the business to better allow them to support the people who need our help.
