Personal Growth?

After a few dry days from posting, I would like to reflect on this few days that have been keeping me busy and tied up. Today, I manage to see a few Malaysian peers which was a good relief.

Ever since I landed here in the UK and undertaking a work of this scale, I never thought I would cope. I am thankful of the opportunity given and also the challenge ahead. The pressure of moving and managing a project at the same time never appealed to me but I believe I am prevailing.

I have survived through the first weekend of project deployment and am thankful for the support I have received from the people around me. The project was indeed a success based on the feedbacks I have received.

This experience has teached me to make key decisions and trust my instinct more. I used to get worried about petty things that distract me from my focus or main goals. It is also usual occurrences that I panic on things that can wait. Prioritization will be the right word or the solution I suppose. It is something that I am working towards achieving a balance of which I am sure that I can master with true dedication.

I have good news for tomorrow as I will be joining my new team for an event at the company’s main training hub. I would be waking up at 6.00a.m to get a train from Southampton to get myself there. I haven't packed yet but I am very keen and looking forward to yet more life enriching experiences there. I will bring my camera to snap a few pictures.

Thinking about things, I can’t wait for this weekend’s deployment and also making my way to Hamburg next week for a company meeting.

I promise pictures in the upcoming posts.

Take care everyone!

Hi Benny,

I have been following your journey for a little while. Your post are really interesting and have help me realize that I also get distracted and really focus on prioritization. Keep up the good work, and thanks for sharing your journeys with us.

Thanks Jon for the words of encouragement. At times I feel like I can take on the world but at days I felt humbled. Well, that is life isn't it. Thanks once again and it is comments like yours that make my blog going! Cheers!
