Dear my beloved readers,
I’m here again today writing what I have been doing and what has happened to me today hoping that I’m not making you bored by just reading my personal story everyday.
I am now in the process of training myself to be more productive, happy, friendly, and so forth. It doesn’t mean that I don’t have these qualities before, but I just have to maximize the good points while minimize disastrous parts.
I got up at 8am (Malaysia Time) this morning and arrived the office so early(because I mostly arrive so late recently). There are 3 articles I haven’t finished, and there will be two more on an assignment at 11am. I immediately started working on the last night event of Sapporo premium beer launching and finished it about half an hour before my today assignment came.
Today, I first supposed to follow Tho Xin Yi, one of the Star reporter, but then my supervisor change my schedule to follow Yip Yoke Teng for the sponsorship event of Penang Star Walk 2011 and PJ Half Marathon. The event finished around 12pm and I finished them before I left the office for home. I am so happy because this is the first time for me to finish three articles within a day. However, I still have two more to finish as soon as possible: The dog breeding sharing experience, and A night club review.
Tonight, I will try my best to do both stories because I realized that the more I delay, the more I have to handle for the next day.
While I am so happy with my accomplishment, something not good happen. I received an E-mail from my working place in Cambodia saying that my suggestion to some changes were rejected. More than that, the mail stated a lot of negative points towards me in responding to my previous mail suggestion some changes in the workplace. I know clearly what I am doing, and I never expect to get such that mail from my boss. It seems like I was considered as a bad person that sought for personal benefit rather than team development. This mail made me realized that some messages really contain unintentional meanings, and that would cause problems when people decoded that meaning while kicking away the intended meaning.
As soon as I finished replying that mail to defend my stand and give my reasons in the hope that the right message could get through many filters around, another thing happened. It is hard for me to describe, but I just can tell that the person I like start to hate me because of what happened at my workplace.
I am so lucky that I have more than 1000 friends on Facebook and my beloved blog readers, so that I can have encouragement to take another step. I have sent two mails explaining what I really wanted to tell them in my previous mail. I hope that it works because it’s the only meaning I intended them to get when I wrote that mail.
I’m sure to update this case for all of you if there is any development.
Good luck and good night.02/09/2011 By: Dara Saoyuth
