You are Not You Job.

That is what my Law professor told me. "Phil" she said, "you are a smart, articulate and sometimes a too charming young man. What ever life path you chose to follow, continue to be the person you are." I lost that feeling.

This morning I woke up and wrote some motivational crap on my mirror and went out there with a smile on my face and bright music on my i-pod. I smiled at the man in the paper shop. I smiled at the single Mum with 8000000000 children (she only has four or five and was an school friend of mine). I smiled at the dustbin man who was whistling (I thought that only happened in old movies), the shop workers, the homeless lady drinking her Cherryade (every morning she is on a bench eating packet of biscuits and drinking her pop). I did a lot of smiling and got a lot back.

Opened my in box - 150 + messages. I smiled. Supplier from Israel phoned and screamed down the phone. I took a deep breath smiled and said "don't worry, you can't help politics. Just do your best." Look at my product profiles, realise I am going to sell out of one of my lead lines in a few weeks. Not a problem, just make a call. Meeting with the guy who interviewed me for a promotion and rejected me, just another chance to prove to him I am all I say I am and more - his problem not mine.

For once I left the office feeling positive. I am an individual, not an integral part of the international supply chain for one of the largest high street retailers in the UK. Responsible for (I am hyper ventilating) two of the core business areas at grass root level. Agghhhhhhhhh.

Any way, I am having so much fun eye flirting with the new girl in my department. I think I will get to know her a little better. Lets see if I still have the charm that goes with that winning smile of mine.
