Got some kudos at work today that made me feel good. Not that it doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I like to embrace it fully, wear it proudly for a few days to give me the strength and energy to produce high quality work even when the rest of my life is demanding my time and energy also.
Trying to figure out what my career is going to be when I haven’t exactly figured out what I’m good at is proving difficult. I know I’m a writer, but applying those skills to different tasks (copywriting for instance) takes a lot more patience and revision than I’m used to.
But I’m getting there. Every day I go to work, I get a clearer idea about what I want my career to look like in 5, 10, 15, 20 years. That’s progress.
