I'm always working on being the best ME. Let's face it the best me, that I know how to be, is not perfect an not always good enough. Trying to be perfect is exhausting.
Trying to be perfect is not my style neccessarily but aiming to be a better person, a better business woman, a better daughter, cook, runner, designer... Etc.. Well that IS me. Reach for the stars.
When I hear about a new technology or something I want to learn about, I aim to understand it. If I want to learn generally I read books, blogs or go to a class. In the case of being a better person and boss let's say that I'm doing the ladder between books and school. In this case living life and just showing up is my classroom.
I'm not sure when I'll graduate but until then let me preach to the choir and just say, life is too short not to enjoy what you do on a daily basis from work, to marriage to God only knows what else is on your plate. Some day I'll join my friends in the wonderful world of marrieds (some blissful others less so), but for now I am content and happy. I recommend you be content with your situation as well, never forget the grass is always greener.
"As women, we haven't always had the best role models at work. We've either worked for men or we've had female bosses who are, well, big bitches." The girl's guide to starting your own business and the girls guide to being a boss, are two books that will "teach you to be powerful without being possessive, to be opinionated without being brassy, and to have a strong voice without micromanaging." I'm not saying women do these more then men or that all women have these problems, in fact, everything in quotes is from the back of the book and I think most men could stand to take some of these book's advice. Management isn't any easier then being perfect, it's nearly impossible somedays. Learning to be diplomatic and aiming to be the best person you can be, well that's a great goal that I hope everyone wants to work towards.
