I’m already in the fourth week of January 2015 and I’m about to finish my four week course in Business Administration – Medical. It’s so weird because I wanted to do Business Administration but not medical but this was all that was available. Weird because they have us learning all about medical practices and terminology and the more I learn the more I know I NEVER want to do this. So what am I going to do?
- I want to be happy
- I don’t want to have to drive far and want parking on site
- I want to be paid what I’m worth
- I would like work that is so interesting that I forget the time and maybe even miss my lunch break because of it
- I want to work with people I can enjoy spending time with; and
- I want to get up every morning with a smile on my face
How many people can say that about their jobs? I would like to retire from work in this new venture but I haven’t got a clue as to what I want. I do know what I don’t want.
- Real Estate Companies
- I definitely don’t want medical practices or hospitals
- Food Industry (been there, done that)
- I don’t want removals companies (been there, done that)
That takes out a large portion of the work force if you ask me.
I’m a capable person who loves life and loves any job that is put before her just as long as I am busy. I’ve spent three years NOT BEING BUSY and ended up learning how to increase my touch typing speed by typing everything I found.
I love the idea of learning new things but after years of not studying I find that teaching methods have changed and I’m not too impressed with the teaching profession. I’m organised and self taught and if there were enough books or online tools that I “understand” then maybe I would be doing more of this.
I have spent the last couple of weeks looking at the company offering the course that I’m doing and there are so many opportunities for them to improve but it’s not up to me to see it or say anything so I bite my tongue and will walk away.
I finally have the opportunity to do the Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint advanced course I’ve wanted to do for the last five years but it is the only one that is not government funded so I’m going to have to pay for it out of my own pocket. Not a problem if it gets me to increase my skills.
All I know is that I will not compromise any more. I’m 55 years old and I am capable of doing just about anything I set my mind to do so not only will I go for interviews and be interviewed by companies, this is my opportunity to interview them and find out if they are suited to me.
I hope you all get the opportunity to wake up every morning and a smile forms on your face because you are doing something you love every single day!!!!
Happy Australia Day!!!!
