Today was a big day at our house! My dear, sarcastic, sighing, eye-rolling drama queen is ‘officially’ a High School Freshman! T-Man graduated 5th Grade and will be heading to Middle School (much to the delight of most of the elementary staff I’m sure)! And The Youngest moves up to 3rd grade and (finally) gets the school to himself!
Let’s all say a big cheer for growing up!
And no homework or lunches for several months!
So in honor of our big day, I got to thinking about how being a Salesforce Admin is a lot like being a mom! This list is definitely not all-inclusive – in fact I bet most of you parents out there can add to it easily!
The patience of Job is required
(Mommy! Mom! Momma! Mommy! to My password isn’t working)
Constantly cleaning up someone else’s mess
(from de-diaper to de-duper)
You are expected to be able to solve literally every problem
(getting gum out of hair without cutting it all off to ‘Could you figure out a way to automatically create…’)
You have to stay up on the latest research and adjust for new features
(parenting websites to new releases)
You are the Chief Safety Office of your domain
(baby gates to validation rules and permission sets)
AND my personal favorite:
To be successful you surround yourself with other like-minded ‘experts’
