New Tasks at Work

When you are given new tasks at work, it means people view you as a trustworthy and efficient worker. With or without promotion, getting new tasks is a challenge that needs to be faced with open mind and positive attitude.

I’ve recently been given new tasks by our boss and I think I’m managing it quite well. While promotion is a far-fetched idea for me (what with the system we have at work where high positions are limited and the senior workers get the upper hand on them), I took it as an opportunity to show how qualified I am for the job.

When you have high expectations on something, the chance that you’d get disappointed is also high. Through the years, I’ve learned not to put high expectations on anything or anybody.

As for me, I’m currently enjoying my two days off (today and tomorrow) and I’m making sure to spend them wisely. Actually, just this morning, I got my mom and myself visit a skin clinic to have our warts removed (will make a separate post for this soon). I also plan to update my blogs and do more freelance work (I just finished researching the benefits of malibu rehab treatment as compared to a local one a while ago) tomorrow.
