I decided to start asking more questions to make sure I was up on things. One thing I figured out in this process was that when she said, "Could you try to get to this," she really meant, "I need this right now!" Well, I was worried at first that she'd think I was bugging her, but after a few days of my new approach, she actually pulled me aside and thanked me, and told me my work was really improving.

I was also a little worried about asking for help so much around my area. Computers were new to me and I wasn't really good at using them. I started askingrepparttar people near me to help me withrepparttar 131109 different programs, and they were pretty willing to help, at first. I didn't catch on really quickly, and I started noticing sighs and glares when I would ask for help yet again.

Well,repparttar 131110 first thing I decided to do was to thank everyone for their help, so I made up goody baskets for everyone in my area one Monday. I came in a little early and left cookies and homemade candy, along with a card saying "thanks forrepparttar 131111 help," for everyone in my division. Everyone loved them, andrepparttar 131112 smiles returned.

Next I went down torepparttar 131113 community college and registered for a six week office applications seminar. I missed my kids for a few nights, but it was sure worth it. Soon I was one of those people who gets askedrepparttar 131114 questions, and my boss commended me on my initiative.

Well, my experience at that office went from bad to great, and with only a little effort on my part. I'm in business for myself now, but I find that everything I learned during that period still helps me with clients, and even with my family. It definitely pays to pay attention.
