It is gearing up to be quite an interesting few weeks.
There is a fair bit happening at work and all of it is pointing in one direction at the moment – a big change.
So I’ve got my thinking trousers on, looking at options for my next career move or whether I should start looking for something a little different.
After more than 20 years working in the media and PR, I am beginning to wonder is it time for a really big change?
As the government abolishes almost 200 quangos and next week’s Comprehensive Spending Review promises to throw up a fair number of shocks in terms of government priorities and budgets, peering into the short-term future is proving tricky enough.
So there is an argument for suggesting it would be better to do some more detailed crystal ball gazing and look further towards the medium and long-term. It might even be time to dig out The 40 List again and see whether that throws up an inspiration.
One thing is clear, a lot has happened in the last 12 months but it will be nothing compared to the massive changes I’m expecting to start impacting on us all in the next 12 months.
I’m planning to sit down with Rachel over the next week or so and come up with a shopping list of stuff I might consider doing instead of what I have been doing since I was 21.
It feels kind of scary. But it also feels quite exciting.
Words will always be my life. But there’s other stuff I enjoy too.
The only thing that is certain is that something in finance or accounting is completely out of the question.
After 42 years, I still don’t do numbers.
