做自己;或做自己想做的事;最難的就是你無從比較起,因為沒有人可以幫你做自己。能做的就是參考;找很多跟自己有類似目標、想法、信念的人;但終究只能是參考而已。
這個過程中,最怕不是別人打敗你,而是被自己打敗。

前陣跟回報的主管為了一件事理念不同,為了對方一句要嘛我留下來做不然嘛就走,馬上想離職流程走人。
當然這個主管只是我的回報對象,並沒有決定我去留的權責;理念不同的事我大可以用自己的方式處理,無需去在乎對方怎麼認同。不過我確實想為了這句話離職同時把自己規劃好的目標和進程一起丟掉。

某種程度上,也是不怕找不到工作。
再者,覺得沒必要跟無法理解自己的人繼續再糾纒下去;道不同,不相為謀。

老實說,心裡的怒氣和怨氣是有的。
我的工作瑣碎到連交接都找不到人的。要講管理,其實只要有 ERP 的公司,隨便人都可以輕易取得管理的指標數據,各項指標也有相應的標準範圍。
真正麻煩的是維持這些指標的數字在標準內、甚至要做到更好,靠的是每天聽各部門的不同問題和需求、整合團隊、給他們一致的方向前進,每當有人做出好的表現實馬上讚揚他們,最後記得感謝每個人,讓大家保持動力繼續前進。

就拿事發前一天,工廠的主管才因為倉管人員上料的內容短少在發脾氣,物管的經理知道後把這位倉管人員罵了一頓,叫他自己去把東西生出來。
我先找了物管經理了解他的立場後,告訴他偶爾低價材料短少,物管背後還有其它團隊會幫忙補回來,工廠主管提出的問題確實是問題,但不要往心裡去。
接著去找那位愁眉苦臉的倉管人員,讓他曉得誰會幫忙把材料補回來,並且讓他了解主管有主管的立場,不要因為單一事件影響了心情和工作效率。

我的工作碎瑣至此,基本上它可以說是只要有意願就可以做的工作,然而它也是個就算沒人做也不致於影響組織運作的工作。
清楚了解這點也是讓我如此火大的原因。

經過社會化的人總是習慣性利用外界對自己的認知來認識自己,即使做的是自己想做的事而非別人期望的事,往往還是會想透過從外界來的反射來肯定自己。這讓我想起終極警探 4.0 中 Matt Farrell 與 McClane 的一個對話。

Live Free or Die Hard 這個系列我應該四集都看過了,印象中 John McClane 每次都是極度無奈地完成這些任務。
對於這個印象,在 4.0 的這段對話描述的最為鮮明。只有自己知道自己在幹什麼、

知道自己追求身為人的價值在哪裡。

老婆一定期望他安安全全地待在身邊,而不是搞得滿身是血。
女兒一定希望他每天回家吃晚餐,而不是得罪危險人物搞得連自己都被綁架。
他完成這些任務能讓 McClane 不愧對自己地站著,得到的只有別人拍拍他說聲「幹得好」,以及辜負身邊最親近的人的期望。

好一陣子前,有位老客戶從原來的產業轉換到新創,希望能讓自己的職場生涯路上有不同的景象,只是努力了一陣子還是決定回到原來的產業。
他這樣告訴我:父母對我有經濟上的期望。
我能理解他的困難,畢竟,完成父母對子女的期望某種程度上是他對自己價值的認定。

生活、職場中總是充滿了這樣的困境,最難克服的是因為我們認同了週遭人對自己的認知而打敗自己,無法再堅持自己的路。
如果你認知自己的價值在那裡,做自己、奮戰下去,就像 Rocky 這段很經典的台詞。

 
 
You, me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.

But is ain’t about how hard you get hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. It’s about how much you can take and keep moving forward.

That’s how winning is done.

Now, if you know what you’re worth, go and get what you’re worth.

─ Rocky Balboa (2006)
