I remember thinking when I first started my career that managers had a great time. All they did was answer emails and monitor people. How much easier could it get? While I am no way near being a manager, I am feeling the pressure of increased responsibilities. While my mind plots devious ways of escaping from weekend support or the necessity to take responsibility for others’ work, the rational part of me exclaims “It means you are capable. Perhaps, it means you are ready for that responsibility.”
In moments like these, I hear Uncle Ben’s voice telling Peter Parker “With great power comes great responsibility”
Have a fun week!
