Just the other day I signed a contract to regularize my employment in my current company. Also there was this task of specifying 3 goals for the next six months. These goals may be in specializing in certain softwares and gaining certificates or learning new skills that will help the person as well as the company. Up to now, weeks had passed I have not been able to specify two more goals, it made me think a lot really. GOALS.
I’ve been trying to find new softwares to learn but it’s not that easy here as all software in our company are original and adding one would entail buying another pricy original. I’ve also looked into the ICS courses in which my friend/officemate is currently involved right now but there isn’t one that I’m kinda interested in really. I asked our project manager if it’s alright to enroll in some short courses and she said it was okay. Right now I’m still in search actually on what to enroll in.
Well digging deeper, and thinking wider, the search for a goal made me think about my direction and asked myself “What do I really wanna do? Where am I heading here?”. Years back like in college I had a clear picture of this in my mind. I was able to formulate an “Ideal” that would guide me in my decisions until I finished college. An ideal you say, well it’s something of a goal, which is like a guiding star, you can’t reach it but it can guide you to the right direction. I’ve lost that ideal somehow and now I have to fish it out again. There are so much direction to choose, so many paths to follow…Maybe someone from a distance could throw a stone at me from a certain direction so it could call my attention 😛
