Last week I had a telephone mentor session, revisiting what I’d put in my 5 year plan. Very clear on what I want for the next 12 months, a bit sketchy on the five year part. So I outline my plans to tackle the 12 month part of my plan, basically things to build my reputation and get recognised for getting things done. My mentor agrees that this plan is indeed a good way to proceed. Sometimes it’s good to hear that! Best made plans don’t always work out, and I feel like I’ve been doing a lot of legwork these past few years, still waiting on the payoff. Knowing that I’m doing the right stuff tells me that it will work out…. eventually.
So today I get one of my usual job search email notifications. It’s 99% guff, but surely enough, I see a job I want! More importantly, I just don’t have what they want….. yet. I have the ‘analysis’ skills, but not the business stuff. So I see a minor breakthrough ahead. I might not yet see light at the end of the tunnel, but at least I know that it leads somewhere I want to be.
