On Being an Xtra Achiever

I note this as a special occasion post, so I will do it in English.

It was last Friday when my uh-so-great-and-lovely team was gathered to something called Uncommon Friday meet up. Basically, Uncommon Friday was HR program which used to happen every month, but I don’t know, seems like they don’t run it anymore, no?

The purpose of our soccer-themed-Uncommon-Friday was to announce several awards to the team member; Xtra Fast is for them who never come late which definitely not me, Xtra Collaborative is of course for the most collaborative individual, and the last one is Xtra Achiever.

I was not expecting that I’d be one of the awardees. Well.. perhaps being one of the nominees is acceptable. But an Xtra Achiever? I mean, look at them, they are the best people you can find in this company (I guess); work passionately, goal getter, and work heartily.

“You deserve it, four of us (3 managers and 1 general managers) has agreed to choose you without any doubt. Congrats!”

On the next day, I came up with a question to myself; did I really deserve it? I tried to flashback what I have done in this team for the last 5 months. You know, sometimes it feels so wrong when I get something I feel like I don’t deserve.

Good for me, after several minutes pondering I figured out that I’m good enough as an individual and team member to be an Xtra Achiever. I was born to be a damn perfectionist, that’s why I never do something half-hearted, or half-baked; I will make sure everything that come from my hand are the best thing I can give. And helping people is my pleasure, I will help them as much as I can. Sounds so narcissistic, right? But that’s the truth, and figuring it out makes me feel better now, HAHA weird~

I remembered, way back to my first month with this team, I said to my friends who asked me about my new role and team; “I think I can running well here, I will running fast; as fast as I can, cause I feel like I’ve found the right track that fits my running style, and also these people are great at running too”. Five months later, I proved what I’ve said with this award. Teehee 😀

Thank you for all my leaders, and my team, yay! I will keep doing my best :heart:
