I’ve been reading a book about networking as part of my attempt to find a new job. Last night I was trying to work on a few of the exercises concerning professional goals, values, etc. One of the exercises was to list 5 accomplishmnets that I am proud of. Ha! Little do they know me, do they?
On the other hand, even though it took a lot of work and I really had to stretch to get to 5, I did come up with 5 things that I am proud of. Believe me, that’s 2-3 more than I’ve ever been proud of before in my life, and 5 more than some points in my life. That’s improvement, right?
1- Survivng and overcoming child abuse and depression
2- Having a happy, healthy marriage and being a good husband
3- Having taught myself enough about computers to be very good at my current job.
4- Passing my A+ technical certifications last year
5- Gaining the confidence and comfort to be adventurous, turning that into opportunities to travel, photo, and explore the world around me.
