Pride and Work

Pride is a dangerous thing.

It is a dangerous companion – a dangerous sin. Pride makes one careless and reckless. Pride blinds one to the realities of things and how things are actually meant to happen. Pride blows up the ego and makes one resent authority or rather invalidate them. Pride is a dangerous thing.

Yet what happens when one is bored out of one’s mind? When one can attest to solving most issues and one can really manage to play with one’s AHT and one’s performance? When one has achieved a sort of peak in one’s current state, one must learn to move on and proceed to the next level with a different high and a different challenge. When there is no challenge in ANY thing at all – no OBs to explain for, no AHT to account for, issue resolutions to bring notice to… what does one do? Where does one go? Nowhere I guess.

This is afterall, employment wherein one’s climb, one’s ascent, is governed by administration, by the circumstances surrounding one’s work. This is employment, wherein one’s success is not solely determined by one’s capabilities but also, largely, by one’s company. This is employment. And this is in the industry I am, unfortunately, part of.

Note:

I recently discovered that I can actually email the articles I’ve spanned during my free (or avail) time at work without incurring an infraction or grounds for termination. Let’s just say I discovered how to use a certain tool to that advantage. Hehe. So I guess, I’ll be able to post more items here.
