experience needed

i’ve been thinking about my job a bit lately. i definitely love it, think its a great opportunity to learn, but i’m not sure how to make the most of it.

put another way, i need to be more pro-active. give me a project, assignment, etc., and i can do it. i even think i can do it well, but when things are quiet and there isn’t a project in process or pending, i find i have trouble finding something on my own. in the past it hasn’t been a problem. i can’t say as i’ve cared much because i’ve never really had a job i really liked before. i’ve always done my job well, but in this case, i want to make the most of it. i want to learn. i want to be pro-active and make the most of my time in this job. i’m just not sure how to do it.

i definitely feel lucky to have landed this job and while i don’t expect to be in it forever, i do want to make the most of it while i’m here… however long that is. i think a conversation with my boss is in order.

of course, if you have any suggestions, i’m certainly open to them.

    Jobs are way overrated. 🙂 Hope things are well in Hawaii. I’m in WA, not far from Seattle. If you’re ever in the area, let me know and we’ll have a beer. We found a shop nearby with 900 kinds of beer. HEAVEN!
