I am irreplaceable

spring Have you heard this expression: “everyone is replaceable?”
In a working environment you might hear that expression.

But if you check, in reality, it is quite the opposite. If you are looking at your working environment, some people can be irreplaceable not only for their talents but what they bring to the company. It becomes known when that individual leaves the company.

This is when everyone starts to realize how much this person contributed to the company. To go even a step further, as weeks and months passes so is the growing feeling that the person was and is irreplaceable. People are starting to feel the impact in their jobs. If you casually rely on someone for information or knowledge, you can find yourself in a predicament when that person is gone.

You have to struggle to get your job done. You have to figure out everything, you are starting to miss that person. The dynamic at work has changed most often not for the better.

As months passes you have found someone new to take over the vacant job. You are hoping you have found someone equal or even better. You will have to learn how to deal with him/her, there is a period of adjustment. The new individual has to learn what the person replaced was doing.

As time passes the new person is not doing well, instead of thriving and learning, this person is actually becoming uptight and is having a hard time. What do you do? How can you help someone to get pass their difficulties?

You are now spending your time helping to train that individual. You are hoping he/she will catch up soon, so you can complete your projects.

You are starting to wish you could go back in time and change it. But you can’t, you are now in the doubt phase. You were hoping it would have worked out. You are starting to realize you made a mistake you are embarrassed about it. Because you are the one who brought in and hired that person.

At the end, you cannot work with him/her, so you have to let them go. You are now facing the daunting task of hiring someone new. Each time you are sitting in an interview you are comparing the person that was irreplaceable with the potential candidate. Each time you are realizing no one can replace them.

You are going to have to settle for less. You are not happy about it, because you are missing that person, who always had your back, knew what you needed when you needed it. Was always there to cheer you up. That person was your anchor. You are now lost.

I am dedicating this blog to my Babu, I am irreplaceable so do you.
