Investing on Ourselves

Last year, I came across an article titled Three Wishes by Nara Kasbergen. LinkedIn profile shows Nara is Engineering Manager for Voice & Emerging Platforms at NPR. I found the article very interesting and thoughtful.

Ben suggests a phased approach for self investment. The first phase is to go through the discovery phase by taking inventory of ourselves. For example, what are our skills & experiences? Then identify areas of growth areas for self-improvement.

Then set reasonable goals to expand the horizon of your current skills and experiences. Then follow the expansion path by learning desired skills with personal motivation & disciple. Then held yourself accountable whether your progress was satisfactory.

Overtime this practice would reveal new skills and experiences motivating to expand further.
