Exhilarating New Challenges~

Exhilarating New Challenges~

I’m still acclimating to my new role in the corporate liability unit for the insurer that employs me. While I’ve developed a comfort level with my casualty position that feels almost as if I am coasting in some respects, I am celebrating the challenges of my expanded responsibilities.

Last week I found myself completely enthusiastic, intrigued, uncomfortable, stretched intellectually and energized. I felt excited by having to delve into something new, interact with a different workgroup, and learn unfamiliar case law to which I can still apply my years of experience. Ultimately, I have the chance to use the tools I’ve honed over my years in casualty insurance claims, apply them to representing the interests of my company, and work with new team members to formulate strategies that appropriately manage risk.

It has been a long time since I’ve experienced such exhilaration at work. I am so grateful to the managers who recommended me for this opportunity, which affords me a chance to pursue a different career path that I’d never considered.

The lesson~ be open to any opportunity. Change is more often than not a good thing. It keeps us feeling alive. I plan to continue to embrace opportunities for change and growth with the intention to live every moment to the fullest.
