I am a chemical engineer, employed as a Process Planner for a sewage treatment plant company.
- taken on too much at work, home (hubby is injured so I do everything), am in 3 different community groups, have a son to look after, and rarely have time for myself.
- weekly reviews, I've hardly ever done because I can't get inbox to zero, and they take too long and are boring.
- emotional issues. There's work I wanted to get when I started my job 3 years ago, the boss gave it to another who started the same day. I got depressed for 1.5 years watching her do it poorly, then I got the work when she took maternity leave but I'm still upset about it and can't seem to forgive my boss. And yes of course he knew I wanted the work.
- stressed about the volume of work to do at work and home. Had a bad day yesterday, too many talks with the boss, I couldn't stop myself crying in front of him. How mortifying!
- bored by my work. Some of it's great, but there's way too much time on the computer and not enough time in the field. Lot's of boring stuff to do.
- still refining my setup of GTD a year after starting. No wonder DA said it takes 2 years, I keep tweaking and changing mine. It is getting better and better, but still no where near 'mind like water'.
- still challenged by how to think creatively and analytically in a way that is up to the same level as my boss. I hate that he seems smarter than me!
- hiding my emotions. I hate that people can tell I'm stressed and unhappy. Wish I could hide it. There's no one at work that I trust enough to talk about it. When my boss made me talk to him about it yesterday he kept saying 'you shouldn't feel like that, there's no reason for you to feel like that'. The only thing worse than feeling upset is having a man tell you that you shouldn't feel that way.
