Exactly one year ago I stepped into a room full of people I did not know and began what would be the first step of employment at my current company…Little did I know what I would expect..
So many things I have learnt since then, experienced, cried over, rejoiced over…so many feelings and memories.
The good and the bad, the happy and the sad. One year passed by in the blink of an eye. To think that we only get about, say, 100 years to live…I have spent 1% of my life at this company. It makes me feel old, makes me appreciate the time…and to consider whether or not now is a good time to move on with my life. There is so much I feel like I haven’t lived..haven’t experienced…and there is still much to learn.
It’s so easy for some people to stay put in one job for 5, 10, 20 or heck even 40 years. How do you do it?
Maybe I just have commitment issues…
Yes, you may become incredibly good and senior in your job…but where is the diversity? …in different environments you are forced to change, adapt, grow, and experience new and different ways of doing things.
Yes, it can be hard to say goodbye to familiar settings, people, ways…but it can also set you free to become someone even better.
I think this year will close a chapter of my life in a way. Let’s start moving on next year…it’s time to prepare for some changes,
