I have a friend who used to work as a surgeon in a primary hospital. By chance, he was seconded to a hospital in the city to help.
Secondments are common in our industry. Generally, they help out when there is a shortage of manpower, and they will not assign particularly important tasks. After the situation has eased a little, they will be transferred back. For friends, this is a bit of an overkill.
Unexpectedly, my friends would be busier than before when they went there. After performing the operation in his group, he still has to observe the operations of other groups; when other doctors cannot find an assistant, he will take the initiative to help; encounter those uncommon cases, even if he does not have to go to the operating table, he still Will go to the operating room to observe and learn.
What's rare is that, under such a high-intensity work, we have never heard him say a word of complaint.
Someone once persuaded him to do his job well, and he had to come back after the secondment. He said that the opportunity is rare, and he should take advantage of this time to learn more. Cooperating with other doctors to perform surgery is the best way to learn. You can watch their manipulation steps up close, learn quickly, and remember.
When the secondment was about to end, the director of the hospital asked the original unit to keep him, and he became the only person who was promoted through the secondment. My friend excitedly told us the good news, and even said "lucky" several times. But in fact, not everyone is qualified to catch this "lucky". If you change to another person and don't make such an effort, I'm afraid you won't be able to seize this opportunity.
A person can do things that are good for growth without fear of giving, regardless of gains or losses. These accumulations will one day explode. There is no such thing as good luck that falls from the sky in the world. All the time comes and goes, it is a leap after a long time of accumulating energy.
Last year, my girlfriend's company set up a 5-person working group, and she was one of the team members. The new team needs a person responsible for the docking work, but there is no corresponding position and salary subsidy. In the face of ungracious contributions and no corresponding rewards, everyone was a little bit shy, and my girlfriend stood up and took up the task.
Because of her low qualifications, her colleagues reluctantly cooperated when the work was arranged, and many things that no one wanted to deal with became her business. Sometimes there were mistakes in work, and the superiors called and gave a slap in the face. She felt very wronged in her heart. Fortunately, she is not an easy person to give up.
She actively finds ways to solve the hurdles encountered at work, and will not ask for advice everywhere; when colleagues are dissatisfied with the assignments, she keeps optimizing and trying better assignment models, for which she also learns management and communication skills. In just half a year, my girlfriends have grown rapidly, and their work has become more and more smooth. This post that everyone disliked at the beginning also brought her unexpected gains: this year the team added new members, the entire team expanded into a new department, and she was naturally promoted to supervisor.
In areas where ordinary people are unwilling to set foot in, there are often opportunities that ordinary people cannot see. Most things that make people good are not easy, and they don’t show obvious results from the beginning. Work hard until you can see the results, the opportunity has already been missed.
I really like a sentence: where you spend your time, where is your harvest. The gap between people is opened in a bit of time. It is precisely because some people are willing to spend more time studying things that others don't care about, they have more gains and growth than others.
Everyone has a desire to make themselves better, but there has never been an easy way to do so in the world. For trees to flourish, it is necessary to take root downwards, and for flowers to be delicate and beautiful, it is necessary for them to be budding, and the growth of human beings is the same, and it needs to go through thousands of trials. Unwilling to work harder than others, but dreaming about living a life better than others, is tantamount to a fantasy.
The way up is always hard. Instead of sighing after a missed opportunity, it is better to do your best before the opportunity comes. When the time is immature, concentrate on practicing, and only when the time comes can you take advantage of the trend.
