Wednesday Wisdoms: faking it

So friends,

It’s been a week since I’ve been taking calls at work now. There is something stressful about not feeling confident in your own skills.

I guess that comes from not having had to ‘learn’ a new job in over a decade. However, i al out feel like I’m losing sleep over this now. I worry about what my call compliance is. I worry about how my customers think I’ve done. 

There are those that use the term “fake it til you make it” however I’m not like that. I need to know that I’m doing everything right from the moment I start. They say it will take months from now to feel even a little comfortable. This time delay will kill me. 

I’m used to becoming comfortable quickly with what I’m doing. I know I can only take my criticism and move on in a positive way. I just can’t see the comfortable forest beyond the stressful trees. 

I am slowly losing confidence in my ability to be a good employee. 


I need to take a breath, go in to work tomorrow and just do the best I can for that day. That’s all I can control right now. The days before are gone. 

Time to work on the days to come.

Until later.

    I’m sure you are doing better than you think you are. Don’t be so hard on yourself. You’ve got this!

  2. Change is hard, and you’ve most certainly had a very stressful year. Take a breath and keep going! It’ll be second nature in no time 🙂
