So my contemplation today is about reinvention.
Growth is a process
I recently started a new job. It’s interesting how in my day to day interactions with new folks I keep bringing up prior experiences in my head and using them as the basis for new ones.
I got into a big meeting the other day about how to plan and execute work, how to deal with changes in technology, and share work smoothly.
I brought some good, strong opinions to the table. But was also open to listen. And in the process saw something that kind of blows me away.
It’s like I’m simultaneously the same person I was at my old job, and a whole brand new one. I’m reinventing myself.
Being mindfully present for it is mind boggling. I can feel myself… well, growing. It’s big things and little things. I made the decision to consistently be an early morning arrival. I decided to openly embrace learning some new technologies. And it’s just happening. I’m making it happen.
It feels so good.
