Why or Why Not?

This actually was my high school yearbook quote whether you believe it or not! I was always so excited about starting a new chapter and trying new ideas. Often, I have to push myself out of the comfort zone because you really never know how something will end up without actually trying!

One of the main reasons I do what I do is because I like to make sure I exhausted everything before I can say I failed or give up. Honestly though, sometimes I have the issue of doing and wanting to do too many things and spreading myself thin. In these situations, you can also ask yourself why to these new ideas and initiatives, but it’s all about perspective!

Some of the biggest decisions with “why not” as a question constantly asked is confounding @bu_pct, getting a second cat (and a third!), and starting my YouTube channel, podcast and the Technology Consulting Community! These were all my best and most rewarding decisions I made and I’m so glad I took the leap!

The most recent jump I did was to revamp my Instagram with more targeted content in tech, careers, and consulting, and expanding into Instagram reels and Tiktok! Let’s see how this goes!

Introspection

My Ingredients to Success

I think everyone needs all of this to be successful.

Introspection. Learn about yourself to figure out what you like to do, what you don’t like to do, what you value, and what your tendencies and habits are. It’s okay to not know any of this, but it’s important that you make an effort towards this.

Growth Mindset. Embrace the process! Adapt and mobilize. As someone who is usually one track minded, I sometimes fall behind on this. Results are still important, but it also depends on what you define as success. Goal set in a way of what you want to learn rather than what you want to achieve.

Understanding. Don’t just focus on yourself. Try to understand those around you and you’ll learn a lot you didn’t realize! I actually surround myself with many non-business and non-tech friends. They opened my eyes to a whole different world out there that complements what I lack.

Humility. Even when you are successful, you need to remember your roots and where you come from. Honestly this is probably the most important because you want to always remember to give back as much as you take. Spread the love and the knowledge, and help out your community! Try to understand them and realize you were once there. Privileged or not, everyone wasn’t born with certainty and confidence. You need to work towards it.

What are your ingredients to success? Do you disagree with any of it?

If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

One of my projects at work is finally going live after two years! It also happened to be my FIRST project despite having done four others while this was still ongoing. It was a long journey and we had many hurdles… SO MANY! But what held us all together – and sane – was teamwork.

Actually we had our milestone celebration yesterday and the client’s CFO mentioned this proverb. It stood out to me on how this applies in other relationships in our life too!

Put yourself out there!

I’m known as an extrovert to many people but I’m really an introvert. According to Myers Briggs, I’m even 90+% Introverted haha. Takes a lot of energy, but sometimes you need to push yourself! Social gatherings could intimidate you but if you focus on genuine relationships, it makes things so much easier. ❤️
