A Fresh Start instigated by my ex-employer
Wednesday, January 05, 2011
Wow, I really have been putting off writing this blog.
On Dec 29, I was told that my job had ended, that I was unable to do the job adequately to keep it. I thought I was ready for it. I had been trying since I was diagnosed with ADD to get the right meds and some coping mechanisms. They only gave me 7 weeks and it wasn't enough. I really thought they'd give me more time; that the fact that they now need to interview, hire and train someone would be a chancy enough process that it would be worth it to give me more time. But it was not to be. I went in today and collected my stuff.
So that door has closed and it's time to open some others!
My birthday is coming up on the 27th, so I've decided that I'll spend this month in a brainstorming process. I have invited some friends to help me and it will culminate in an afternoon of brainstorming followed by dinner on the 29th.
I'm very excited. I am aiming to come out of this with some short term goals of how I'll make a living in the next year or two. Also, I'll have some longer term goals that I'll be able to work on and slowly transition to doing more things that are both profitable and enjoyable for me.
