Happy AccuBirthday to Me

Today marks my two year anniversary at AccuConference – and I didn’t realize it. Now I am sitting here thinking about the different things that have happened in two years. Good things, frustrating moments, shining moments, and the things that are so every day, I can’t even remember them. Every job has all of these aspects and there’s nothing you or I can do about it. I’m sitting back and thinking about the first post I ever wrote for this blog, my favorites, as well as the things I’ve learned.

Favorite Post: It’s hard for me to pick just one, but I’d have to say one of the first posts to come to mind is “Music is My Inspiration”. I truly believe that music can change your entire attitude with one note played and I liked being able to share that all with you. (PS – Currently listening to The Goo Goo Dolls “Iris”) I learned some things, changed in some ways that were probably a long time coming. I’ve learned that you are your own worst enemy and that today is just one day, and another will be along tomorrow, so you better be ready for it.

I’ve learned that change is something that should be embraced and not feared and that you’re not going to figure out what “works” right away. Above all, trust yourself – intuition is a powerful factor in any job and you’re usually right on when you have a feeling.

Think about the time you’ve spent at an employer, even if it’s not the one you’re at now. Are you learning things? Are you paying attention and trying to expand your horizons? No matter how old we get we’re never going to know everything – the people around you might know something you don’t.
