It’s been some time since my last post and I frankly cannot tell you why.
I’ve had time. I just didn’t make time.
I picked up some work in December that led to a regular 40hours for the last couple of months. Sadly, the work I am doing right now does not even scrape the surface of my skills and abilities. Though, I have been learning stuff along the way and building on my skill set. First and foremost is an adoption of LEAN philosophies. I kind of wish I knew more about LEAN when going into a job interview months ago that would have resulted in a really amazing opportunity.
Two pieces of advice I received some time ago were that:
One) it was important to network and,
Two) never stop writing.
I have followed neither in the past few months. I regret the latter. I feel networking is a false gateway into productivity, with the focus being on how well someone can sell themselves and not on how well they can actually do a job. I’ve witnessed the result of good networking and its not pretty. Individuals who are given roles and responsibilities, that do not have the skills or talent to handle said roles and responsibilities.
So, this has kind of rekindled my need to write. So, I’m going to try my best to get back on task and continue my personal improvement.
But for the time being, if you know anyone that needs a really awesome forklift driver, give me a shout. Cause that’s one of things I added to my skill set recently.
