Anger Management :) :)

Patience, wasn't exactly one of my biggest virtues ever. I always loved interacting with others, working with a team and all of that but ironically, my short fuse always gave way. The one most important thing that I have learnt in the past 4 to 5 months is that being a channel producer is definitely not a cake walk. I was sooo damn wrong in thinking it would be easy.

Being a people's person is hard, dealing with them patiently is tougher and then getting work done through all of this is close to getting a glimpse of god!!!

Okay, so I'm exaggerating, but the point is that trying to switch between mental states so that you get along with every member of your team is next to impossible. Trying to do this everyday-- forget it!. Here at, we get a wide variety of people in all shapes and sizes with a very eclectic mental range. It's a lovely assortment :) but when I had to deal with it initially, this box of assorted chocolates did not seem too wonderful. I admit it. I have flown off the handle quite a few times- bruising, injuring and sometimes demolishing the egos of many of my hard working producers. (I hope I haven't got myself onto their hate lists please).

Well, It's difficult to always relate to everything that comes my way.... right??

But then when I have to say a flat NO to soo many nice ideas oozing out of these creative brains, it's the hardest! These geniuses come with concepts and their faces glowing like 1000w bulbs and when the ideas get rejected, their faces resemble one of those zero power lights. Truly heart breaking. It's these sights that have inspired me to venture into the unknown...... I am becoming patient... beat that! I am becoming more and more tolerant by the day :). In the process, I've realised the true value of my team. They are an awesome bunch... talented and enthusiastic. Now it's my duty to pull up my sleeves and collaborate these scattered thoughts together and help them execute it.

Even if that means that I have to deal with the craziest brains ever created.... I'm all for it!!
