I have been sifting through a number of online courses. I do suffer from an shiny object syndrome – and that does not help when I am choosing which way to go.
Before I knew, I had to sign up for a ‘free course’ offered by my employer. So the choice for made for me! I did think about it and at the end I gave in. To be honest, I regret it now. Mainly because of all the hours I need to put into it and at the end of each module there is a big fat Quiz waiting for me.
It is not a bad course. I am learning some new stuff and I will get a certificate when I complete it. But in my head I had many questions: Why I am doing this if I want to work in a different field in the future? Am I doing it more for my boss than for myself? Do I do it because everybody on my team has signed up?
Next time I need to remember my own advice which is as follows:
Save your energy and direct it where it should be. Your energy is not limitless. Look at your energy as a valuable source. There are only so many hours in a day. Don’t get yourself manipulated into things you have no interest in…even if they sound tempting at first.
Have a great week dear friends and use your energy wisely 🙂
