It’s that time again – time to take a look at how far I’ve come and where I need to go. Performance reviews are coming up in the next couple weeks.
The answer to the first question is easy: I’ve come a long ways, but probably not far enough to keep up with the demands of the job. The answer to the second question isn’t so easy. I don’t really know where I’m going.
There are possibilities. I’ve started teaching seminars here, and I’m enjoying it. I’ve only done a couple so far, but I have lots of potential to teach more. Not very many people around here are interested in doing that, and they need more people. But since it is not directly related to my regular job in Contracts, I’m not sure how supportive my boss will be in allowing me to develop that potential. His job is to groom me as a Contracts Administrator, and that’s not the person I am at heart.
And who am I, at heart?
That’s the big question. I’m still digging through the layers on that one.
