A couple of weeks ago, I finished off my involvement with Shannon Park Lego League by hosting the Showcase that had been previously postponed by weather. That night, I chose to have a steak dinner (a bone-in ribeye steak, please). Yes, I was hungry, but my soul needed it more than anything to mark the closure of this commitment I made a few years ago. I think the mind is a lot the same. It needs to be fed from time to time to keep it sharp.
Last night, I started a Mini-Masters course on Marketing Management at the University of St. Thomas. A few months ago, I decided to enter this course as a way to broaden my capabilities beyond the technical, leadership and management work I do today. In essence, it will provide some brain food. A healthy thing, I think.
As I sat through the 3 hour lecture from the professor, I feel like I may have stumbled onto potentially several other opportunities for me to make Big Plays in my life. I see opportunities immediately to apply the knowledge I am gaining to my current job, but also it got me wondering if there is a new Big Play I haven’t even though of yet? Is it a start of a new direction, or a new way to contribute within my current responsibilities? Only time will tell, but my eyes, ears, heart and mind are open to the possibilities ahead.
