I am enjoying my job. I get to hear about interesting projects and meet great people. I also get to visit some lovely places. I feel very lucky.
I have been so focused on moving my career forward I forgot about the enjoying and learning from the day to day activities. I feel this is what I have been focusing on recently. I want to progress, but there are things I need to learn in order to do so.
So this month is about my interim Personal Development Plan review. I need to go through my objectives with my boss, but also I need to make time to go through them and plan them for myself. I get caught up in my daily to do list and forget the bigger picture. I need to find a way of presenting my objectives visually in order to know I am working on the right things at the right times.
It’s really interested to be in an organisation that takes development seriously. Maybe I have just been unlucky, but I feel positive about this way of working. I feel I have a plan and targets and can think proactively more than I ever have before. So I want to make sure I am working effectively in order to learn the skills I need to be able to progress when the time comes.
