This matters in every walk of your life. Personal and professional. I am living these words right now with a change of jobs soon. I was asked why I am leaving. My reason wasn’t about money …it was about worth, my value and how I saw me in the work enviorment. When I asked a question about what it took to get to the next level…silence became the answer. After a couple of attempts it became clear the answer was no. Funny thing is I was ok with the answer in fact I knew when I asked the question chances are what the answer would be, yet I was more put off that no one bothered no one felt it mattered enough for a sit down to discuss what it would take to get to the next level short term and long term. That triggered or fuel my decision to change my job. I realize I felt I was worth a conversation with the powers to be even if the answer was no. I deserved that much. Now that conversation is too late to have. Someone else will value my work , will appreciate my worth. Someone already does…Me!
Houston is the 4th largest city in the United States yet it has been reduced to being underwater as Hurricane Harvey has wrecked havoc on the City. The pictures and the news cast are nothing short of heartbreaking. People are trapped underwater, in their homes cars and others out trying to rescue those who are trapped. No matter who you are or what you believe this is sad and heartbreaking. Houston our prayers are with you.
