Career thoughts

People who have known me since childhood years know i’m a sucker for things like leadership, coordinating things, organizing things, etc. Sometimes i wonder if some of my high school/college friends thought i was going overboard with that thing. I’ve been a leader in high school, been active on several college committees (cultural activities, Rotract clubs, etc). It seemed natural to me that i would progress into leadership roles at work. So that’s how it worked at my first job – team lead within the first year or joining, on to being development/test lead at CompuServe to being a Manager at iWidgets to now being a Project Manager. At this point i think the next step for me is to move into Product Development. I like that its got leadership aspects to it since that comes natural to me but i’m also enamored by the potential to discover and invent new ‘things’ that have hitherto not been thought about. Things that will enable others to be successful. There is also of course the desire to be creative. I’ve always had ideas for things to do… as i’m sure everybody has… so why not the desire to take the next step to implement. It does seem to the natural career progression… more thoughts on this later…
