One a year ago today, I started at my current position.
Sometimes you cannot see the big picture until you take a step back.
I remember who I was a year ago tonight. As I look back on this professional journey that I have been on, I realize that while it has not been easy, it has been worth it.
Am I human and prone to making mistakes, especially when I am new to a job? Of course.
But mistakes, as I see them are there for course correction. They may vary in size and scope, but if your smart, you learn from your mistakes. More importantly, you get up, dust yourself off and keep going.
I think that is the biggest lesson of all, to get up and keep going, no matter what. There were many times in the past year when I was ready to throw in the towel. But I stuck to my guns and that is something I think, to be proud of.
