28 days later (minus the zombies)
Four weeks ago, I started this blog. Oh the fun I’ve been having! At this one-month point, I decided to take a brief moment to reflect on what I’ve learned being a blogger so far.
Interestingly, only 27% of my posts in the past four weeks have actually been technology related. While I had expected a larger percentage than that (since my focus is on being successful in corporate IT), it’s an interesting observation about corporate IT in general. Anymore, becoming a successful leader in IT truly only requires about 27% technical knowledge and skills. The rest are project management proficiency, communication and presentation skills, and people management ability. We’ll probably get our foot in the door with this or that technical skill, and then quickly outgrow that in the workplace for bigger and better responsibilities.
While I can’t help but be a little disappointed in bidding adieu to my technical job only five years after college graduation, many IT career paths dictate such technical molting, so thus is the path I have chosen. And continuing to observe and participate in technical development projects keeps my appetite under control (and gives me delicious material for those 27% technology related blog posts).
But I digress. Thanks to everyone who’s joined me in this blogging project for the first four weeks. I’m looking forward to another 582.
