Hello, Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here.
It is strange wearing dress clothes to work. I have worn cargo pants and boots for nearly 13 years and Carhartt before that. That is 18 to 20 years of hard-charging from cranes to cargo to corrections.
I will have to adjust my customer service in my new role as a volunteer coordinator. They have always been there
I am comfortable interacting with anyone on many levels, so interaction with the public for the improvement of an institutional environment is something I can get behind.
In my experience, the men who have worked for me respected genuine and straightforward talk. I will see how that works for me in the suit world.
People are people wherever you go and biases should be put aside.
Recognizing biases is a good start for changing thought processes. There are a lot of times I more comfortable interacting with this guy
Over this guy.
That is a bias I will have to adjust within myself. People are People.
It is a great time to transition at this phase of life.
I am a little punch drunk from a few knocks to the noggin and I need to preserve any brilliance in brain cells as long as I can.
My body will thank me later as well provided I stay active. As for active, today I plan on working with my hands.
The ducks need wing clipping, seed needs to get in the ground and knives need handles. One cannot do that in a suit, and running around all day with clean fingernails would be disastrous to my well being.
I will keep you updated. It is a brand new day.
