Seven months since I last posted! Shame on me! Here’s a glimpse why:
I work in supply chain in a contract manufacturing firm during the day. The past 18 months, was filled with long hours and struggling with demands of my company’s customer due to lack of resources. I sacrificed my focus on Cindy Ho Designs
What really happened was I lost track of my goals. The work life balance was non-existent. My co-worker recognized how disillusioned I was and sat me down. She paraphrased a story that she once read that helps her focus. This story had such an impact on me. I now keep this story in mind when things at a little rough at my day job.
At any company, EVEN the best companies, everyone is replaceable. The jobs you and I sit in, yes, they are difficult to fill, but if we were let go or quit; in three months, someone will be hired to take our place. They may have a learning curve, but eventually they will do the job just as well as any of us. In a year, we would be remembered as someone who used to work here. After 5 years, we’d probably be forgotten. The company will move on. However, you as a daughter, mother and wife; you are irreplaceable. If today was your last day, the ones who love you most will have a empty place in their heart. No one in the world will ever be able to replace you.
Are you Irreplaceable?
