It’s been a while…again…I know. Shortly after my last post about Creating Possibilities, my work world got turned upside down. Teams split. I was given away and then traded back. I ultimately ended up in a much better place, but it was a crazy whirlwind.
I had been doing all of that work to keep things moving along on my slow, continuous journey for overall overall “betterness” but I hadn’t really figured out what the heck I was going to do next. Then all of these unexpected changes happened that were mostly out of my control.
That’s kind of the way life goes. I somehow managed to get myself out of a bad spot by continuing to do kick-ass work and saying as little as possible to keep my options open and not piss anyone off (I am REALLY good at both of these things.) I partly got lucky and partly made opportunities for myself by just being me.
I am definitely back on the right track professionally. I don’t know where I want to be in five years, but I do know that I want that promotion I turned down last year. I have earned it. After I tackle this one, maybe I can retire and become a yoga teacher and figure out how to save the world.
Getting this promotion might take a little bit more than staying quiet and working my ass off. I am going to need a bit more of that being brave mixed in but I am going for it! I don’t know how much writing I will have time for on this quest, but I do have some posts brewing in me. Now that we are caught up, maybe we can talk about some fun stuff! Stay tuned…
