One thing I’ve learnt is that I’m not learning enough.
There are new things that I need to learn. There are also things that I already know but don’t know good enough.
I have never been the kind of person who has a career plan all mapped out for the next 5 years. So whenever I’m being asked “What are your career goals, what do you see yourself in the next 5 years?”, I shudder.
But I think I shouldn’t avoid it anymore and should really think about it because I’m no longer at the stage where I’m lost and not know which path or field of work I’d like to be in. I’ve worked on 3 entirely different role for the past 6 years. I am still glad I made the move to change because though it took time for me to explore, I knew what I didn’t like and what I like. It may change with time, maybe I’d do something completely different from what I’m doing now…but it’s safe to say I’m fine with what I’m doing now.
It’s so easy to get comfortable with where I am now but the question is “Am I learning anything new? Am I growing?”
I will need to do some soul-searching and answer those questions. And before I let the last half of 2011 zoom by, I better make sure I grow and develop myself.
