If not now, when?
If you are reading this post, chances are you should be doing something else, and you have put it off (again?). We all procrastinate, but at this moment, this mightn't be your worst distraction. This could be the answer to some of your questions and help you to decide what you want to do. Taking time out to decide your next step, training-wise, is time well spent. Looking at training courses you have done in the past might be some indication. When my Mum insisted on me doing a Secretarial course all those years ago, I couldn't wait to finish it and get out into the world and do what I wanted to do, and look at me now - essentially using and building on those skills and that knowledge The following quote from Forbes.com I just came across was a sweet reminder:
“I’m very glad my mother didn’t let me quit piano lessons at age 10. She said I wasn’t old enough or good enough to make that decision, and she was right. I remember at the time I was shocked. I did not like that my mother said those things to me. But when I got a chance to play with Yo-Yo Ma or more recently with Aretha Franklin, I thought, I’m really glad she said what she did.” – Condoleezza Rice.
