Being a fish in a new pond

Having working in a new company for about a week, I still entitle to be ‘green’ to enjoy a brief so-called ‘honeymoon’ period that I can leave office relatively earlier than my peers. It is always nice to have a fresh start. Meeting new people, working on new non-routine things on my own pace, or simply going to a new office, having lunch in new area, it has been so far so good.

My new post is by no mean easy. I’m no brain-surgeon and people are not gonna die if there is error in my job. However, able to do the job is not enough for me; I would like to prove to myself that I can do the job well. I believe that I’ve the skills to do this job, but whether I can succeed there is ‘still up in the air’, i.e. just too early to tell. Cuz, the key to succeed in my job is managing people with their own interests which are diversified according to their functions. There will be difficult people and trouble-makers who just do want to cooperate. Most of my upcoming problems would be ‘people’ problems that would take lots of patience and communication skills to work things out within reasonable timeframe. How good and bad I will be? I think I will find out in due course. Anyway, that’s why I’m hired for, I will get paid for doing an ok job, but I think I’m still not old enough to simply settle for that. I hope I can do better than that.

Anyway, my job is working with people and the people that I meet are nice so far, so does everybody in my team. I think I will have a better ‘feeling’ about the situation here, aka. how the chess game being played in my office after about a month or two when I really settle in this position.
