I Don't Know

"Can you do live sketch notes on a whiteboard at staff meeting this morning?"

"Can you do live sketch notes on a whiteboard at staff meeting this morning?"

One of the perks of working at Southeast (near Denver) is the weekly staff meeting. Much of the time it's an opportunity for Phil (our lead pastor) to teach and pastor the staff. Opening with a short worship set, it's like a mini church service.

This morning was one that struck me hard as it's centered around many of my current struggles with my job.

I don’t know what the hell I’m doing.

It's so hard to admit it, and especially to your bosses. I feel like there's no room for my skills here. That they should just hire someone else to do this. I'm ashamed that I don't bring enough value to stick around.

I'm discovering that I'm not the only one who feels that way, nor the only one on staff who feels this way. I like that our leadership is leading our staff, leading me, to create a culture where it's okay to admit what you don't know.
