I have decided to start this personal blog for two main reasons.
Firstly, I want to document my journey in my new job. I am a negotiator for a company where I basically am tasked with finding, or being given new leads to follow in order to form new contracts that will help us to grow our services.
It’s going to be a tough call for me, I’ve never done anything like it, but for some reason they felt I had all the attributes to do it, and bizarrely it looks like one of the first deals got to do is with a Polish company, which means I’m going to have to look at how I’m going to negotiate in a foreign language.
So I want to document that and keep myself driven and focused perhaps by thinking about things as I go and documenting my progress by getting it out in writing on my blog.
Secondly, I do struggle personally at times. I do have a concern about the fact that I’m not in a relationship at 26, and I do want children, I know I got 10 years before it starts, problem, but if this job really takes off, the years could slip by and I don’t want to suddenly be panicking in my mid-30s.
I also suffer from anxiety and stress more than I should and I’m hoping that by thinking about what I’m going to write in this blog and then typing it out, that it gets things out of my brain and allows me to form clarified thinking on how big the problem I am facing the time really is. I’m hoping that seeing it in front of me in black-and-white will help me to keep a sense of proportion on it.
So that’s the main reasons for starting my blog and I’m hoping that it will be something I can do every few days to really help myself to make progress in my job my personal life. On top of that I do like to chat and although I do have a lot of friends, they do all seem to be in relationships which means that my chances to talk are a bit limited.
