Sometimes friends help me learn myself in ways I didn't see and I'm thankful that's all doing for the good.
Tonight we had very delicious cheesecakes and during our very exciting conversation my friend gave me a new way to re-examine my efforts at learning,work and life. In some ways, we are alike: great passion for learning and growing and enjoying reasonable challenges. So she said, it's not that I lack work-life balance to learn something after work but I've just focused on learning on the job. Yes, she is right; within 1 year I've made tremedous progress - I want to give myself some credit for this.
So one more new affirmation for me:
I'm doing great! I'm advancing at work and strenghening/developing my knowledge, skills, and capability. I'm productive and work smart. :-P
