So how did I handle that new assignment? 
The one where I was unfamiliar with
both the task and the industry? 

I had a weekend to prepare. 
First I sent out an email to buddies,
looking for someone in the industry or
someone experienced in cash controls documentation.  

I stopped at the library where
I loaded up on industry related books. 

By the time I received the response I needed,
I had absorbed enough lingo and key concepts
to not sound like an idiot.  

With the books and the interviews,
I walked into the workplace Monday morning,
confident that I could add value. 

Was I the ideal candidate? 
Hell no. 
But I got the job done.
