What is the most rewarding aspect of what I do?

The most rewarding aspect of what I do is the giving/sharing of my knowledge, skills and abilities in pursuit of doing a set of tasks more efficiently. I love knowing that my team is doing simple things efficiently and has more time to move on to more advanced tasks. Or is doing a very complex task well with high accuracy and excellent results.

Designing and building the tools the team uses with only the basic tools on hand and currently installed on our systems is a great challenge. I learn about writing macros from scratch versus recording a macro. I learn how to share those macros across the network and write the scripts that automate tasks. Yes, my skill set is homegrown but as I’ve needed to learn something I’ve read more and more about programming which has inspired my taking 30+ courses across LinkedIn Learning, Udemy and EdX to expand that knowledge.

I am now looking for a job where I can continue to innovate, create, solve and build as well as apply all that I’ve learned and am yet to learn.

Just a few things that excite me, light me up, that I truly enjoy and where they cross the boundaries from Hobby to potential Career. There’s a lot more than this but charts and graphs can only handle so much information!

Gone to the Dungeon

Gone-to-the-Dungeon

So today’s big project was a file inventory. We have hard files still, although that is slowly going digital finally. The gremlins and dragons in the dungeon otherwise known as the file room had left a big mess!

Today’s task was to find all the files that were not supposed to still be in the drawers, take an inventory and ensure that we have all of our files. This was the cute little dragon that I put on my office door to let the team know where I’d gone.

Someday I will catch the gremlins who have stolen some of our files and wring their little necks. In the meantime I have tamed the file dragon and am going to get rid of some more paper!
