There were a few things that I had deliberated last year that needed to be achieved by this year. I had wanted to have among others the following:-
a) More outdoor type activities through photography - Done
b) Improve the state of health by going to the Gym - Done
c) Reallocation of time for self - On going
d) Carreer change - Considering Now
I have been in the IT/Telecommunication line for 16 years. I started in 1990, when I decide to make a career change then from a Civil Engineer to IT. I had been working in Civil Engineering for a period of 6 and half years more of a structural engineer.
Recently, I had a wonderful conversation with a close friend about going back to more basic skill which is cooking. We were then discussing and exchanging recipe on some soup preparation (if U can imagine a middle age guy exchanging recipe - that might make some people puke). I was then posed the question by this friend of mine, would I consider making another career change and move into the food business.
I thot about it for (hmmmmmm)......2 minutes, thats how long I take to make a career decision before (and as long as my brain can sustain), possible, I quipped. At that moment, I thought to myself, am I too old to change to another profession? I had all this while setup and mentored many engineers and developers so as we can compliment while leverage on each other skills. Am I going to throw away all this and go into the food business?
But I then thought to myself, don't all these geeks and businessman want to meet somewhere? I wish someone out there can guide me as I am an amatuer when trying to take this plunge into the commercial world.
