Week 9 – Self Reflection

1. What am I good at?
I would say that I am good at collaborating and working with others. Reason for this I do think that is that I have a high patience level when working with others and do not get frustrated easily. Rather, I am a good listener and take the time to understand what others are saying and or what is needed at hand making it easier to work with others. Alongside, I am very technical and analytical as I like to evaluate all the facts and evidence before deciding. 

2. What do I value?
One aspect that I value is finding balance between work and one’s personal life. As I think that there needs to be a good mixture of both to be able to enjoy life and other experiences outside of the workplace. As I think that balance is key in being able to reduce possible burn out at work and it can help make work seem more enjoyable. IN combination, finding balance is essential for one’s mental health and well -ness as I think that it’s not healthy to constantly be working. 

3. How did I get here?
I would say that my life experiences and drive have gotten me today where I am in my life. As I have built up a strong work ethic and skill sets to help me work towards goals that have been short or long term. As well, I do think that my life experiences have shaped me into the person I am today as I know have a better understanding of who I am as an adult, what I want out of life, and what my future goals I strive for. 

4. Where am I going?
As a young professional, I do think that the direction that I am headed is building my work experience, expanding my connections, having new life experiences, and learning from mistakes, and learning to live each day to the fullest. As I think that I am at an age where there are endless career paths that I can take, places to live, travel, and meet new people. A key aspect, that I like to keep in mind is that when it comes to life we don’t have to be stagnant in our lives rather our lives change over time.

Hi Cassidie, I enjoyed reading your post. Your skills make you sound like a great team player which is very valuable. I like that you chose to talk about what you value at work I didn’t think of it like that, I definitely value a work life balance as well. That’s going to be one of the most important components of a job that I look at, also the “fun” category of the 5 F’s. Well said about where you’re going, best of luck.
