I have thought that I have become rather good at self-reflection. But as it turns out, there is still a lot to learn about myself that I haven't yet realized.
I had another coaching session yesterday. It was a perfect point to reflect what's going on as my transformation between roles is nearly complete. During the session we discussed about what was my takeaways from the previous role, where I stand now and what are my plans for the future.
For most of those questions I had ready answers. I had been pondering about those same topics at my own. But in the end, after putting it all together I realized what really drives me forward.
I don't just want to move on, climb on the organizational ladder. I want to create something new. I want to take on challenges that might not be clear in advance. And I don't want to remain stagnant.
To accomplish that there aren't any clear openings. I need to keep my eyes open for such opportunities and trust my instincts. I still don't know exactly where I'm heading with this new role. But I already know I want to create something more than just great deals.
