1. What am I good at? I believe I am good at adapting to new situations. I am good at taking on new projects, understanding that things I’ve learned in the past can apply to them. I am also good at thinking outside the box in problem solving.
2. What do I value? I value my time and energy. If I notice that I am spending too much time on something that is not adding meaning to my life, I try to cut it out. I also value individuality. I think that seeing the trees and not just the forest is very important.
3. How did I get here? I got to where I am today, mainly because I found out what I did not want. In high school, I was able to job shadow and volunteer around people in two different occupations I was looking at going into. When I realized I did not want their particular positions, I knew it was because I wanted more freedom to decide. I chose a business degree because of the diverse options the field of business offers.
4. Where am I going? If I continue on my current trajectory, I will be working in an HR department of a hospital. While this does interest me, I would eventually like to get my masters degree and work for the Gates Foundation. I need to be strategic in planning the next several years of my life to accomplish this goal instead of staying at the same job for a long time.
