Totally Talented Tuesday #4 - I Do What I Do...



Seeing how I am back at work again, with no choice, I am trying to focus on why I loved my job when I first took it, before it exhausted me, before the travel and the time took the wind from my sails.

Really I used to love it - and I do really love what I do - I am proud of what I can do. I am a robotics engineer. I travel around New England/Upstate New York fixing laboratory robotic equipment for our customers. This is my talent....I think I am pretty good at it. I use words like capacitance in my everyday life. I love the fact that I can walk into a customer's site and take something broken (often something large and broken) and fix it. I love that I can write methods and programs for my customers. I am able to understand what they are trying to achieve (everything from drug testing to DNA testing). In the past year and a half I have learned how to do things that I never knew I could do.

So that's it, that is my talent this week - and I have to admit...it does make me a little more cheerful for my work. (for my IRL friends...please give me this moment of assumed genius...even though you know the truth :)
