I've noticed lately I've been very negative and frustrated with my job. Burn out or whatever.
But as I was sitting here working on payroll, I heard my A/R and A/P girl in the accounting department right outside my door joking with the DO and just laughing like crazy.
It made me realize that even though I get irritated and overwhelmed at times, there are things about this job that I really, truly love and I need to take more time to focus on them.
I've got a phenomenal staff. Heck, the entire hotel staff for that matter is pretty darn amazing. I love that as I'm sitting in the office doing whatever, I can almost always hear my staff outside my door laughing; enjoying their jobs. I really love that they have a career they come to every day and can enjoy their time together. For a large hotel, we really do have a family atmosphere. Whether it's within the department itself or hotel-wide, everyone here gets along so well. That really makes me happy.
So, the challenge? Think of a part of your job / career / school that you really truly enjoy; something about it that makes you happy.
