#01 How to begin a new beginning
Updated: Dec 14, 2019
Naturally, when a chapter ends, and just before a new one begins, one would have a lot of questions.
Throughout the years of my career, a lot of questions had been running in my mind, I never bothered to seriously address them. I continuously pushed back on them, and moved on, either on the same position, or immediately to a new one.
Now, that I've decided to stop, there's no way around it. I will have to bring those questions back, start looking deep into my soul and figure out some answers.
I already know, that new questions would pop up, could be that harder ones, from one hand, this is exciting, from the other hand, I must admit it's scary.
First and Last
The first question that I came across was, where would I end up this journey?
Will I find a new career? One that's far apart from my Hi-Tech career?
Will I find a new direction, still within the Hi-Tech industry, just with a new kind of role / seniority? After all, I believe I know my options, and kind of liked the product leadership, so what could be better than that?
Or will I get back to the same place where I started? Just as a different me? Looking at it all from a different angle, interpreting reality and responding to it in a different way?
It is a big question, and I know it would be the last one to get answered, but I am curious, can't wait to get there.
Questions, Questions, Questions!
I would probably need to start by asking myself some other questions. simpler ones? or are they that simple?
What is it that I like in life?
What is it that I liked in my career so far?
What do I enjoy doing?
What do I despise!!!
What do I bring with me? What core and unique values?
What do I want? What's the end goal?
What would I like to do that I didn't so far?
What are my weaknesses?
Where would I want to improve?
How do I start the process of answering all the above?
Should I get someone to help me with this?
Got any idea for me?
