I've never been one for new year's resolutions nor am I a staunch believer in astrology. According to 'those in the know', 2010 was the year for me to concentrate on things I've been putting off for a while and a year to concentrate on my career. The big question was: "Which career?"
With the recent 'shuffling' happening, I've decided that maybe it was time I pulled my finger out of my ear and ensured I was employable, should I be called into a meeting and the dreaded 'R' word used. After putting it off for the past three years, I finally bit the bullet in January and enrolled in a Certificate IV in Workplace Assessment and Training - a nationally recognised certification in Australia and also a requirement if you want to work as a professional trainer.
Only two weeks into the six week course and I've already learned a fair bit. (Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks?) As with most courses, the workload's heavy, but great. Unfortunately this has meant that my writing and production on Family Secrets have come to a slowdown, but not a complete stop yet. I've managed to set a side a few hours today to work on the next episode. I was hoping to have Episode 6 done by the end of March (the series' 1-year anniversary), but that doesn't seem likely at the moment.
In the mean time, take courage in the fact that my blog hasn't gone the way of many others that began with the author all fired up about their subject, but then lost interest and it simply died. Until I publish another article about my learnings of the years, keep on practising what you've learned. Till our next chat.
