Have you ever allowed a situation to take its natural course to see what happens? Most of you reading this might think, “Yeah, I’ve done that.” Have you ever allowed a situation at work to take its natural course to see what happens? Again, many of you reading this might be thinking, “Yeah, I’ve done that too.” What was the result? Was it something you wanted to happen, not happen, or didn’t care one way or another?
I currently face a work situation where I have allowed it to take its natural course to see what would happen, and on the surface, a promotion seems like a great thing. Though there are positives, they are outweighed by the challenges. This has led to a sense of obligation because many people are rooting for this to happen. Except for the person it was designed for and who would benefit from it. Now I’m concerned that the natural course has won, and there is no escape.
So when was the last time you experienced a similar situation, and what was the result?
