Second Guessing and Reading Between the Lines
Intuition is very keen and very wise. Reading between the lines at work is a crucial skill. I like the personal touch to this post about the art of second guessing something.
Yesterday was probably my most stressful day at work. I felt others conveying strong messages and reinforcing an unshakeable vibe via their body language, and I felt flush and fearful of being fired.
All day I was punishing myself for second guessing my value. Of course I was fine. I wasn’t being fired. I know that the whole “managing client” part of my account role (see Polite Society) was a problem to my boss but it couldn’t be that bad… Except for the fact that he was distancing himself. And I felt it was my time.
