[Re-]inventing My Career

Day by day has passed and no change was happened in the last few months. I’ve just read “Business Model YOU” last week and getting inspired to consider my career plan again. There is nothing wrong with the job. It’s just me that could not really engaged with the substance of my compliance job (plus its culture). I keep question myself whether I don’t, actually, like to work hard like hell or this kind of job is no longer drive my enthusiasm.

Two things I like about my current job are the applied accounting practices and my relationship with the Client. Expectation and pressure is always there in everywhere I work (so I don’t really mind about that). However when talking about long term career and self actualization, I don’t think this is the only way to achieve what I really want.  The book told me that I need to ask again about “who am I?” and “what is my career purpose?”.  They said self discoveries take time but worth to try for better career planning. I’ve thought about it for more than one month.

I do not want to be a pure accountant or book keeper (or the manager of accountant and book keeper). I want to provide more value, give the very best of me. I want to make an impact, make people satisfied with my work (though I know I could not please everyone) and hopefully my masterpiece would last forever. But I am not really sure changing my field (accounting and finance) is the solution. So I try to find and draw the connection between my lifetime objective, my career and my education and see how many options I have.

This is a new project for my self. I am the client, I am the consultant. I need to gather all the information I need and start a rigorous analysis. You may follow the project development on “project category”.
