I had that feeling today like I'm swimming as hard as I can, but drowning despite my efforts.
It's day 3.
It's a new job.
New ways of doing things.
My expectations are high.
It's such a terrible feeling though, not knowing what I am doing... having to ask question upon question. Where assumptions are made that explanations are not required or verbal briefs are enough, when often they are totally inadequate.
I am missing the comfort and ease of my old job, but I know this is right. I know it takes time to settle in. This is change for the better. And this feeling is all about doing something new and being challenged.
And yet, I hate that feeling of gasping for air.
Shouldn't I be doing an easy backstroke by now?
