And as an update...

The new job is taking away time from me. Not that I spend hours working - since work hasn't started as yet. But there is not access for external sites and that ends all the story there.

We had a two day training kind of a thing for new recruits. Two days - 8 hours each day. It was fun - the speakers were very good and made the whole thing fun & lively. And last session on Friday ended at 6 PM. Me & my new colleague were happy to be able to get home soon and once out of the audi - we checked our cell phones. And lo! Both of us had an sms from our manager that there was a meeting from 6:30 PM 'onwards' and we must report immediately! Both of us actually slumped immediately :))) We knew work will start soon -but we were not ready for it to start on a Friday evening after 6:30 PM - that too after a training session, of all things!

But thanks to God - it was not a meeting in literal terms. More of an intro session with the top guy in the process that we would be working with. It was very low-key and friendly. But those guys kept saying things that are scaring me! Things like - 'you guys are the first on team, so you are the founders', 'the first two months will give you sleepless nights, we assure you', 'what you guys will do will become the guiding steps for all those who will be working in this process in the future', 'what happens and what does not with the client - depends very heavily on you' etc! Now its good to say - do well. But when people keep building up expectations and building up the pressure on you - its a little maddening, isn't it?!

Or.... am I over-reacting? :D :D

My old company was pretty much a closed environment. I had a pampered life there! Maybe I am still expecting that things will be similar - which, obviously is my fault! Maybe I should just say - Hey- here I come and just vroom forward! :D God should help me drive through! 

But I am sure - work will be pretty much something like this :D Click on it for the larger picture.






On another note - like a couple of you people have already read it, someone has something really interesting to talk about me :D Now if this really turns true - I should prolly dedicate a complete post to him :)) And yea - a treat too ;)




On a completely random note - do you people like strawberries? I think they are just wonderful! I could prolly keep eating them all day. You can eat too?

oorjas said...

they don't want you to feel too free since the begining itself.. :-)

it'll be fine in a few days. they do it just to get you ready to deliver more.. some kind of reverse psychology.. to scare you so that you lecture yourself that you can do it..! and do it...!
