Helping [Jan. 11th, 2015|02:19 pm]
In my job, I get a non-negligible number of requests to help people solve this or that problem dealing with the various datasets I manage.

Fortunately, I derive an enormous amount of job satisfaction from being able to come charging to the rescue because I am a Magic Data Wizard who knows all the Seekrit Esoteric Mysteries required to Make It Go.

Which is to say, today I got an email saying,
Gosh! That fixed it! BOOM!
Thank you so much for assisting!"

and it made me really happy. :)

As being a counselor has fewer incidences of specific "I did a good thing!" moments, I have derived some personal job satisfaction from training new employees. It helps me feel accomplished by assisting others with concrete meetable goals, and I also receive the satisfaction of imparting my knowledge and experience.

There was no point to this reply (other than high-fiving you) other than to avoid writing. POST MORE

Passing on knowledge and experience, yesss! High five!

I gotta remember that I can do short posts that are, like, just one passing thought. The attempted long-form essays are the things that stall forever.

Wow, no thanking in the office? That is a serious culture problem. Somebody needs to buy the CEO some Miss Manners books.

It rocks when the customer is appreciative.
