Re-evaluating 2012

These days the offices are quieter, with the upcoming Christmas celebration and the annual holidays being taken, there’s less hustle to get things done now. I finally have time to clear out my office, get rid of the clutter that had accumulated over the past year. Along with re-evaluating all the papers that I have hoarded, I am also evaluating my career choice. The work that I have done and what I could do better. The work I enjoy and the areas where I would like to contribute more.

The one word that I would use to describe myself is “connector”.  I love people and the business of making money responsibly. So while I have used my skills in project and program management quite a bit, in my re-evaluation, I have fallen short in maximizing my potential as a ‘connector’. I had gotten so mired in the paper work and the day-to-day job that I have neglected to make time for the skill that makes me unique and defines my career choices.

In the upcoming year, I would like to spend more time networking and connecting. Meeting new people, being exposed to new ideas, discover fresh angles in tackling old problems. In a nutshell I want to “collaborate” more, learn a lot more and evolve a lot more quickly.

Just in case you are looking for some ideas on how best to go about doing an evaluation of your career choices, take a look at the following articles by Greg McKeown for some great idea:
