I’m going to see how far I can make it with Robert Lee Brewer’s April Platform Challenge. This will be tough: a full-time job, no computer at work because I’ll be on site for the next month doing deficiency reviews, a course with an assignment due and an exam this month, plus easter.
For Day 1, define yourself. I don’t want you to worry about where you’d like to be or anything in the future. Instead, I want you to take a look at who you are, what you’ve done, what you’re currently doing, etc. Below is a chart I’m using (with my own answers). ~ Robert Lee Brewer
