Be intentional at work
I have been with my current company for 5 years. The first 2 years were so exciting. I won a few awards then all of a sudden I just got lost in the shuffle of life. When I stopped being focused with my work mistakes happened, and I was so unhappy. I had no direction, just lost floating out there. Once I re focused and decided to be intentional with my work I could ask myself, What is it I want from this career? What am I going to do to get there? Can I find a mentor? These were all new questions that I honestly never thought about. Now that I am being intentional at work, the quality of my work has improved tremendously because I now have a path.
