It’s been a little over 8 months that I’ve been working. Despite the design/drawing I’ve always wanted to do, I chose a job that’s in the field of information/media, based on construction projects. Nonetheless, it has taught me many personal skills, insights and experience to which I might not get exposed as an architect. I am thankful for this opportunity because every experience is worth a try.
So what have I learnt in this 8-months?
1. Confidence is the key to getting what you want. Nothing is too difficult until you stepped out of your comfort zone. Don’t imagine the 0.001% that might have happened and miss the 99.99% that could possible be if you give it a go.
2. Asking a lot of questions is actually a good thing. Constantly learning from others insight is always a plus. Everyone is willing to explain, you just have to ask them. Ask everything that you don’t know because one day someone will ask you the very same question and you don’t want to disappoint him/her.
3. Know how to be a leader. Being a leader is not an easy task. You need to motivate people just as much as you can motivate yourself.
