What new work experiences have you had in the last 12 months?
I don’t make New Year’s resolutions but I do identify aspirations. This year, one of them was to be uncomfortable as often as possible. Seems weird, I know. Except that being uncomfortable almost always means doing something new. And when I do something new, I learn. I grow. I add to my toolkit.
If you can’t remember the last time you experienced something new in your work, you have stagnated. It’s time to raise your hand, take on that project, ask for that new stretch assignment. What can you do that’s new?
