I have been an inactive member of the 48days.net community for a couple of years, but I am ready to participate.
I stumbled upon a reference to the "Recovering Engineers" group recently, which seemed perfect for me -- a graduate of Engineering school at Mizzou. However, when I go looking for the group, I can't find it!
Thanks for the welcome. My degree is in Civil Engineering and my work experience is in Construction Management and Program Management. A year ago I resigned from my program management position be a stay-at-home mom.
I currently have an idea of a baby product that I would like to produce and sell. I have drawn up a 3D model of it and plan to contact some 3D printers to see if I can get a prototype made.
That's what I am currently interested in. At some point as my child gets older, I think I may be interested in some sort of construction management / project management job if I can find something with flexible hours.
Thanks, that book looks interesting and I'll check it out. I've been doing the list thing for a while and have 30-40 things in the like category so as of late I've been putting my focus on the top 3, photography, writing, and investing and building on those revenue streams.
I've been following a multi-pronged plan for thus far:
Get back in shape
Get rid of unnecessary stuff
Pay off debts
Save 6-12 months of expenses
Move to new city that's a better fit
And finally ... Do something else
Well back in high school when we had career testing everything for me pointed to high interest in creative arts but since "there's no money in that" and I also had interests in science and computers I went with engineering. And I hated most of school, especially math. There's many more but that' was the first things I realized when looking into my discontent.
Well I've been an electrical & software engineer for the past 20 years and it's always felt like the next project is when it will get enjoyable but it never does. Reading a number of books over the past year about finding your calling has made me realize how many signs I've missed or ignored, sending me down the wrong path because a degree and 9 to 5 job is what everyone is supposed to do.
Well, I'm not totally sure yet, but I am attending Leadercast next week. Leadership, personal development... stuff like that for the most part. Right now I'm trying to focus on focus... so anything in that area would be great at the moment. :D
