There was a time when you punched that old time clock that you left work behind. You went home to your family, friends, and social lives. The next day, you clocked back in and started your professional life all over for the next 8 hours. You left your work at work and your home life at home. Or did you? Today, the line between our personal and professional lives has become blurred largely due to the way we communicate… social media. It has changed the way we share our news, the way we keep up with our friends, and the way we work.
It's less than two weeks to go til we bid goodbye to 2012. Don't even try to deny it, you are looking forward to the holiday parties and feasts that are ongoing everywhere. Let's not also forget the sales, bonuses and other gifts that are being given out during this time of the year. But before we head to festivities and merriment, we have work to accomplish. It is may be a dragging feeling to go to work when you are already in a holiday mood, but this should not stop you from performing at work.
I've been called by others an 'expert in'... online recruitment, digital advertising, social media... and more... but I do not believe that there is such a thing as a fully developed 'expert.' In today's ever-evolving digital world, there are only those that happen to have been exposed to more than others in that particular field. We build knowledge, wisdom, experience through life-long learning. I prefer to call myself a 'perpetual student.' As it implies, I believe I am only as good as my knowledge and skills are today. Things might change tomorrow... or maybe even better... things WILL change tomorrow. It's not that I feel that I have to keep up with the Joneses. Learning is just a way of life for me. I am inquisitive. I like learning new things. I like exploring new technologies. I believe that if you are the one to see a problem, rather than complain about it, you should be a part of the solution. I know that everyone and every experience I encounter has something to teach me.
