When I first started blogging (way back in 2009) my intention was to try and help other people who were new to the role of being a manager. At the time I scoured the Internet looking for websites, books, sources and articles that could help me better understand what it was I was actually being tasked with.
And so over the space of three or so years my blog has undergone a few face lifts, a few different styles and varying rates of being updated. At first my goal was once a week. Then I thought was as this is called the ‘everyday manager’ then that was how often I had to update my posts. And now I aim for once a week.
I think the variation in content and regularity of posts also reflects my journey that has gotten to where it is now. So now after 5 years of being a ‘manager’ and having people who report to me I think I have learnt a few things, tips tricks and lessons. I certainly don’t proclaim to know it all by any stretch of the imagination. But I can say I am a lot wiser than I was, a bit more shrewd and a whole bunch better at managing people and tasks.
I haven’t finished my journey and neither has this blog. I will continue to write posts and will attempt to keep you informed with little tidbits I learn along the way. What I need to do is be more focused, organised and less on twitter to make sure I capture the thoughts and ideas that come to me.
So all in all this blog post really is a BIG THANK YOU! To all the people who have read my posts, commented on my posts or have been the inspiration for my blog posts.
I’m not finished yet. And again – I say thank you.
