Among other inquiries, that was one asked of me by my mentor at work today.
And it got me thinking about a lot of different things. So did the other questions she asked, which I really didn't have answers for when she asked them.
I just had never thought about things in that way but ...
- isn't that what a Mentor is supposed to do for you?
- Get you to look at things from a different perspective?
That meeting was easily the highlight of a very good day at work for me.
It is amazing how a simple question can start a ball rolling that looks like it will lead me down a very fun path. I am looking forward to this coming year at work and the changes and challenges that await me. 2011 could just very well be my year! :)
I am a risk taker ... but they are calculated risks and that is a good thing (I think!)
