I'm Swimming in a Circle
Monday, December 07, 2009
After such an enormous blog entry last week, I'm afraid this one is going to be shorter.
I am swimming in a circle. Part of this is because I ended up with a cold after last weekend's frenzied rush. And another part is because I'm just floundering with my job search. I have -- let's just say -- been doing other things. Fun things. Spark. Facebook. Managing my site.
Avoiding looking for work.
That's not good.
Today I met with my employment counselor. He said I was making good progress, and I have to agree, but I also have to say, wait a second, I can be doing more. And I should be.
But I am in avoidance mode because I'm still not really that settled on what I want to do. Hence he gave me a few assignments. And one of them (I actually asked to do this) is the Myers-Briggs self-assessment.
Hence I'd better go and take it.
I need to straighten out my swim lane and make some real progress on this front.
