This week was one helluva stress all around.
May it be at work or at my personal time, I seem to have been at unrest.
Okay to not sound so ungrateful, I do smile. I have a new experience – which is to eat a rum cake ‘Sakkar/Sacharr’ cake that came all the way from Vienna, Austria. Sweet treat from boss. Awesome cake, I just think that it did affect me a bit; which was saying something because we’re at work. So back to my original rant…
It is crunch time. Sunday next week will tell all of the error of my ways. I just hope that they give me a chance to show that I have indeed shown the error of my ways and I have learned my lessons. I also want to show them that I am learning how to be efficient and a good listener – when it comes to instructions. How, you ask? It’s audit time. Yes they will evaluate all my work since the start of the employment. It is their right so I’m just going with the flow, but I am admittedly have so much to catch up. Like the following things:
1. I need to print print print!
2. I need to sort sort sort!
3. I need to be prepared about the questions about protocol, instructions, procedures they may ask.
The last two weeks of June will turn into one gigantic week, and I am currently in the middle of it. Tomorrow, I will go to Abu Dhabi to perform my receivable duties, then on Saturday, I plan to go to the office to PRIIINNNNT, Which I have regrettably neglected to do. Much as I want to grumble, I have no one else to blame but myself, and myself alone. Do I need to blame it to me being new? No. Do I blame it on others? No. I just need to suck it up and be prepared as much as I need to because, whether I like it or not, this is my mess and I should be the one to clean it. So Saturday, off to work.
Sunday: Crunch time
Monday: Visitation with the accountant
Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday: Chase payments!!! which is also, one of my insufficiency.
I do not also understand why I can’t keep up with my work load, though to be fair with myself, I am trying my best to do my responsibilities. What I normally do are the following:
Sunday: Collect and record payments done over the weekend/reconciliation/answering emails/urgent extras/
Monday: invoicing/receiving supplier invoices/reconciliation/chase LPO/
Tuesday: check if there are certificates to be crosschecked for payment/updating job folders/ reconciliation/ email answering
Wednesday: Chase..—-let’s be honest, while I’m doing this one, I am also realizing that my work SEEMS simple but is also time consuming. Also I need to be good at time management I guess. Kailangang lagyan ng liksi kung ano man ang aking ginagawa.
Another realization for me. I also need to follow the instructions.
CREATE INVOICE>PRINT>CHECK PAYMENT>FILE>UPDATE>COMPLETE PAYMENT>STAMP PAID>CLOSE FILE!!!!
Exactly in that order.
Very deep sigh.
Just now I have beard in the tube, the news anchor is saying political will is needed in facing the countries problems. Maybe I also need that – not straight away political, but to master the WILL. I need to want this, not just the work dynamics, not just the camaraderie, but all aspects of work, even when I need to ‘fight’ with stubborn and thick faced delegates, with very vicious and sly salespersons and even with myself, laziness, despair discouragement and all.
Therefore, once again I pour out to you, to organize my thoughts. I just hope that together with God’s help, that I may do enough to make the auditors my potential in staying as a member of the team.
