About Me and Being "Never Finished"
Since my childhood, I have always been struggling to find something that excited me for a long time. My problem wasn't that I didn't know what to do but I was interested in too many things and I've been living by the motto
You can do whatever you want if you want to
in the meaning of:
- If you want to become an accountant, you can do that.
- If you want to become a network technician, you can do that.
- If you want to become a mechanic, you can do that.
- If you want to become an engineer, you can do that.
- If you want to be self-employed, you can do that.
- If you want to become a freelancer, you can do that.
- If you want to become a programmer, you can do that.
And that is, more or less, what I've done, sometimes more than one thing at the same time.
As you can imagine, I was struggling for a long time to find my purpose, i.e. my goal. One of the reasons is, that I'm getting bored quite quickly and I'm always looking for the next challenge. For me, it's almost impossible to focus on a single thing (not during my work, but on a meta-level) and I need a lot of variety.
For a long time, it felt wrong not to be specialized and master one field. I then realized that this can be a tremendous strength. This blog might not only help people that are generalists but also those who are specialists and trying to improve themselves.
Living by the motto "You can do whatever you want if you want to" and not being satisfied by being average comes at a price, i.e. there will be no final goal, no finish line, no "I'm done", hence the name of this blog is "never finished". I recognized that I'm not meant to do just one specific thing but a variety of things and try to be my best every time.
Being "never finished" is a mindset, a concept, a lifestyle.
My vision in writing this blog is to share my experience and thoughts about becoming better each day and what it takes to become a good leader. Hopefully, a lot of people will find this information helpful and open discussions will arise.
During this journey, I will open myself up and share my thoughts and feelings about these topics. It might be an emotional journey but it won't be a soft journey. If you want to become better you need to be brutally honest with yourself and take ownership of everything you do.
Let the journey begin! Please, share your thoughts in the comments or contact me directly.
