Awesome post about progressing, yet never forgetting who you are.
I am sitting here, planning for the changes to the blog and my own work habits in the weeks ahead, and I have come to the realization that there is an important balance to walk here. How much should I change from my old course? How far should I go and how much should I keep?
The answer is, of course, obvious. As in most things, balance is called for. You can’t forget your past, but you can’t stand still either. I need to keep the things that are vital to me, while pushing past my limitations to move ahead in the places I’m deficient. I need to hold on to my humility while being confident enough to push myself forward. I need to be supportive of my colleagues while never forgetting to worry about my own well-being. It’s the classic ‘you can’t help others until you help yourself first’.
