As a child my mother always told me that I was bright enough to do anything I wanted.
I’ve always focused on the anything part. Which just leads to confusion, how do you decide, when you can do anything?
Today I chose to pursue the thing I wanted to do, not just the thing I could do, and was successful.
Sometime in March or April I will begin managing the implementation of a restructure, which I’ve been scoping for 2 days a week since January. I’ll actually be working to make a difference to people and to help them, doing something worthwhile I can be proud of. Not spinning my wheels at work I’m OK at with minimal direction, as I did for most of 2009.
It won’t be easy, but it will be challenging, and it will be the skillset that I enjoy using.
That’s the first necessary change of 2010, the year of the Tiger.
Stay tuned for part 2
