Work pressure has been absolutely horrendous….. I’m putting in 12+ hours each day and still feel like I am barely making a dent in the amount of work that needs to be taken care of each day. These hectic days remind me of late 2007, early 2008 – the early hectic days when trying to implement a system to manage the substantial amount of foreign consultants that we had working in the company. Fresh ones arriving everyday and contracts that needed to be negotiated every month. Exciting times 🙂
So this sort of feels like that… only difference is that now actually have nightmares about things that I forgot to take care of in regard to the project. So I wake up from my nightmares and jot down notes on things that I need to look into next…. a funny way to deal with work and its related worries. I am sure that pretty soon once I get used to the way things are run in a SI project, I’ll be able to accomplish more in lesser time. However, once I get to the point where I can do my work with one hand tied behind me, it’ll be time to move on to newer challenges.
Its a good thing that I am an adrenaline junkie, cause while sometimes it feels tiring to live like this, most of the time, I do love the high of work pressure and the accompanying adrenaline rush.
