Returning to work to find it’s all change…. August 7, 2009

Posted by Paul Walton in Business, Personal.

So coming back to work after 3 weeks off visiting family in California, to find my boss has “mutually” agreed to leave the company.  Now this is a very interesting move since the whole Exec of my firm has been changed and they are all bringing in their trusted soldiers from their last employer.  This time though it has direct impact on my good self!!!

I like change.  It keeps you on your toes.  It keeps you top of your game so to speak.  If you can accept change, ride the wave, go with the flo what ever phrase you wish to use, I think it is a good thing.

It allows you to be ready for when you are made redundant, which in the current markets can be anytime or if you personal life for what ever reason takes a turn good or bad, you are more prepared for it and can deal with the more difficult complex situations life throws at you.

I struggle to understand people who are long time employees of a firm.  They have usually done about 5 or 6 different jobs within their organisation, but over time and as they become near the end of their working life, I tend to find them quite cynical and generally unhappy.  I’m sure there are happy people out there, I’ve just not came across them that’s all.

Although I don’t believe in job hopping all the time, I do believe working in different environments and industry sectors, your experience can grow and you become a better person all round due to your experiences.  Being able to apply your professional experiences at work can help ensure win win scenarios, which is always good right?

So the purpose of this blog?  Well to really get my message across that change is good.  Be prepared in this ever changing world and don’t be afraid of what life throws at you.

Change in my work life is great, though I appreciate it might not work out for me, I’m not scared!  Who knows I may also “mutually” agree to move on……..
