The first thing that is noticeable from the shape of my wheel this month compared to last month is the improvement in the vision area. I have finally committed to paper the first draft of my high level goals. The interesting thing is it didn’t take that long in the end due to the work I had done earlier, however I guess I was scared about finishing them. I don’t think they are correct yet, however I am happy to give it ago and see how it feels; expect a post about it soon and I would be very interested in your comments.
I have also increased the score for career slightly. My role changed at the beginning of April and combined with going on maternity leave shortly I am finding there are a lot of short term opportunities arising for me in the company. This is great because I have worked in the same area for the last 6 years and I am now starting to see other sections of the business. Â An additional benefit is it should be easier to return to work after maternity leave if there is a reason why I can’t return to my current area. I am also currently on a week long course that will (hopefully) result in a recognised project management qualification, not only will this be good within my current company, but is obviously something that I can also take to other companies if I decide to move.
I have reduced the score on health slightly because I have been having some pain around my lower back. This could be pregnancy related or it maybe because I’m overdue a chiropractors appointment (or maybe both). I suspect the pain is related to spending the last week sailing and spending a lot of time sat on some very uncomfortable seats.
