WSPA P1 Final
Workshop Tutor: Samena Rashid
I feel as though I have progressed as an individual to be a more active dare-devil who is willing to go with the flow. As mentioned previously though, my limits remain at climbing rocks and swinging from tree tops and I cannot see myself throwing my body out of a plane and plummeting toward the ground. However, I am much more open to engaging with activities and this has supported my development into a work-hard-play-hard style. In having much more organised and more enjoyable activities outside of going to the pub, I have much more to look forward to and this means that I am focused when working.
With regards to planning and prioritising, I could not survive without my diary. Simple organisational changes like this have made me realise the spare time procrastinating I had that I could have been allocating much more effectively. I now appreciate the value of time and I am finding much better ways to spend it.
While I am filling in the gaps of my skill portfolio through the WSPA, my degree, Microsoft Office Specialist certifications and the like, I am now hoping to secure a training contract which has left me questioning my commercial awareness. With this in mind I have signed up to The Economist have several newsletters concerning legal and business matters sent to my mail box. Furthermore, I am looking to learn a language (either Spanish for S.America or Mandarin/Cantonese), provided it is affordable, during the summer holidays as I realise that we are in a global market place and I need to adapt to this.
