oh my gosh.. I had the biggest revelation the other week.. I realised that its not my job thats the problem, nor the company, nor the colleagues, nor the long days.. Its actually ME.. shit..
I just am not enjoying my professional life AT ALL! and HOW THE HELL did I end up in IT when I studied developing countries and wanted to work in the bush with empowering women?? among other things..
So, I did some soul searching, and some more soul searching.. and read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance to REALLY get those philosophical ideas flowing, and what do you know.. I figured out Im on the wrong path in life!
ARGH! So how do you reverse, or lets say do a 180degree turn in your professional life? Lets just say, Im happy I didnt realise this after 20 years in this business..
Sooo.. I have realised, I would love to work in music.. music music music! being a tour publicist or a label publicist would be fantastic! I want to use my ability or should I say obsession with talking to people in a good way, and get into PR, marketing etc in the music industry.. event organisation, management etc.. Now I just need to sit down and plan this a bit more in detail… ;)
wish me luck!;)
