I am a big Marvel and DC fan who has been loving superheroes from a young age and flying in my dreams. I believe the idea of superheroes is to inspire greatness and encourage us to put out our best regardless of the obstacles and challenges we are faced with.
One evening In August I felt like a superhero.
I was in my digital marketing class when I excused myself to receive a call from my boss. For him to call knowing that I was in class, hints at a possible emergency.
He needed me to highlight changes to an order that we placed to suppliers within 2 hours. The problem is I had saved my changes to the order and thought the new order on my spreadsheet would suffice.
Turns out that wasn’t the case. The task at hand at first glance looked impossible with the given time frame. I expressed my frustration and challenges due to the time restriction and my boss in a “I know only you can do this” voice asked me to see what I can do. I felt like a superhero thrown into a difficult mission.
I first retrieve the previous order from my sent mail folder and quickly used shortcuts to compare the orders. I started by making notes in Microsoft Word but quickly realized that would be confusing.
I eventually resorted to highlighting the cells that had changes. I know it sounds simple but we are talking about 13 different tabs with minute details and an ongoing lecture distracting me.
30 minutes after, my wife calls increasing the difficulty setting of the mission. The call was to remind me of some groceries I was to get before coming home.
Chaleeeee! Will I be done in time before the shops close?
When we return we will see whether our hero is able to get out of this sticky situation.
(Sorry it just felt right to add that.)
Anyways, despite these setbacks I came through. I emailed the changes to my boss who was grateful at my success and sped off to find an open grocery store.
My spider senses led me to an open store where I found my items and as I exited I finally stumbled upon a Charmander in Pokemon Go and caught him in one try.
Now if that is not a HOT conclusion to the day I don’t know what is. I hope tomorrow does not bring upon me similar challenges.
I felt proud to achieve all this that evening. It’s not often you are able to please your boss, wife and Pokemon Go goals at the same time. I guess God was in my corner cheering me on. I pray you all have a blessed day filled with similar success.
Keep it One HONDRED!
