The girl I used to know

Last week was an emotional rollercoaster week. I was excited about starting my role as #TheCXO but I was also frustrated with myself.

I went from the girl that knew it all, to the girl that knows nothing. From the girl that can get things done fast, to the girl that has to ask a lot to just get something simple done.

I was upset with myself but I talked myself out. It is a part of the process, I told myself. I need to give myself sometime to learn and I am humbled by this experience. So I kept my head down but with my chin up the rest of the week.

The grass will always seem greener on the other side but I have to learn to grow where I got planted and make it as beautiful.

  1. On average, it takes 3-6 months (or longer in senior roles!) to adjust to a new role. It just takes time, so don’t be so hard on yourself – it’ll all feel intuitive very soon. I promise!
