{self} Achieved in 2017

It’s December now, and it’s time for reviewing what we have done in these 11 months!

  1. Passed in German exam A1 level.
  2. Changed the old job which I have been worked for 4 years there.
  3. Travelled 4 times, which 3 times are Manila, another one is Singapore.
  4. Celebrated 1-year with bf. Wow time flies!
  5. Booked the flights to travel to Sydney and Perth next August, with 2 of my 15-year friends, ’cause surprisingly it will be out 1st time to travel together, 3 of us.

I think my 2017 is quite fruitful, at least not wasting much time on mobile I guess haha! Time to think about what’s my target for 2018…

[self] job changing

When you feel your work is no longer making your life meaningful but somehow sick of it while getting on the train to office, it’s definitely time to move on.

I’ve worked for this company for 4 years and that’s the first job after graduation, I have set a target for myself to switch a new job within this year on this April, and then I made it- I filed the resignation letter to boss on mid September.

As I have worked there for 4 years, it’s kind of a comfort zone as boss and colleagues are so nice to me (you could see the below pic which we had a farewell lunch together on my last day), and I am familiar with the clients that I dealt with, and that’s why I need to be brave enough and determined to make this decision, after filed the letter to boss, I’m walking to a new route for my life (even if boss was trying to persuade me to stay, I’m not that kind of person who could retrieve my decision. Stubborn? Nah I think once you got the idea of quitting, you won’t stay long or work with fully passionate heart and soul).

Of course, before I filed the letter, I did the below things so to rationalize my decision:

  1. Prepared well on my CV and linkedin profile.
  2. Went to few interviews so to know my market value and what kind of job I might have a chance to get in the future. Of courise I have set my target job / company nature before sending out the CV, I weren’t urge to get a new job.
  3. Set a deadline for myself to file the letter (that’s for my inner self to prepare what to say to boss, and to force myself to finalize the decision). At last I filed the letter after 2 weeks of the deadline.


PS- So I’ve achieved 2 goals by September 2017! One is to get a ‘good’ grade for German A1 level exam, another one is to change a new job. Have you guys achieved any goals? Let’s rock on to build up a productive and meaningful lifetime for our own!
