It’s been a while since my last blog post because now that I finally have some free time, I’ve been having all sorts of fun reconnecting with people…
…and trying to figure out what I want to do next, career-wise. Still no clue, btw.
As I mentioned in my previous post, there are just so many possibilities, I don’t know which to choose!
So I actually have this project in mind that I’m calling "A Day in the Life" — where I plan to tag along with different friends on work days and see if I dig their jobs enough to add them to my shortlist.
HEY. I never claimed it was a GOOD plan. But I think it might be doable in some cases. Maybe not so much in others.
I’m always up for learning something new, though. And this is certainly a much more entertaining method of career path selection than say, browsing through classified ads… Especially since the majority of classified ads have this really annoying tendency to make jobs sound 10x harder than they actually are.
I’ve written a quite a few employment ads in my time, so I know this type of thing helps with the weeding-out process. Coming at it from the other side of the fence though, it just makes the less courageous among us feel horribly inadequate. Unnecessarily so, I might add.
The truth is, no matter how qualified you might be at any number of things, there will always be a learning curve whenever you start something new. Job, relationship, whatever. Everyone starts out as an idiot. You can see that as a downer, and make yourself feel all dumb and too old to learn new tricks… Or you can see it as an exciting new opportunity to expand your boundaries and become an increasingly more awesome version of yourself. The choice, as always, is yours.
When you find yourself veering down the road to Downer-Town, it helps to remember that no matter how old we are, we’re ALL groping in the dark, trying to navigate this maze of learning curves called adulthood.
Some just hide it better than others. :) So RELAX, and just enjoy the journey. Cheers!
