Today was my first day in the new company. Everything has just been pretty overwhelming. Last Friday I was still dong some turnovers in my old office. Then over the weekend I joined my new team for the team building activity and today I was already in my new company attending the day 1 orientation.
There is definitely a huge contrast between the old and new. The new one is definitely bigger (1800 FTEs !!!) and the lobby definitely intimidating.
I do miss the home-y feel of the old office. But it's comforting to know that am just on the other building.
In a lot of ways I am a closest resistor... I advocate on living and breathing change. After all in my new role I will be part of the team that would drive change.
But deep inside I am a wimp.. reluctant of change... And I guess everyone is inherently predisposed to hold on to the familiar..And I guess it's not a bad thing.. it's just make us human...
And perhaps reaching that level of maturity to finally embrace change is one of life's lessons.
