Hello! Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
It has been a beautiful week and there is a lot to learn in my new position.
Typically, I feel myself among the brightest in the room, but this is a new set of circumstances and I am a bit of a dim bulb here. It is fortunate to have a great teacher at the moment.
I have supervised some of the rougher parts of society for over a decade with instances where things were unpredictable and instant action was required. The willingness to be physical and engage has been a necessity in an environment where leadership attempts to mitigate newsworthy tidbits hampered appropriate support from the politically minded.
Thriving in chaos has been my forte.
A younger me once said, “standing up against overwhelming odds is the only way to be.” It is almost like praying for patience, a definite no no.
Now, I am in another role completely. While still in the people business, I am not studying survival tactics in a correctional environment, but rather cerebral and thought-provoking methods. Currently, I am tackling Daniel Coleman’s Working with Emotional intelligence and Bobb Goff’s Love Does.
There is absolutely no adjustment phase or insecurity whatsoever.
While, I like my job, I like my weekends. Today is Saturday, a day off to slay lions with a pronged spear,
and face what may be commandeering a pirate ship.
