My 1-1 this week was very helpful. During this course I have learned a lot more about how I work, but it does seem that phases and shifts are at play here. There is a lot of work all happening at once, which can appear chaotic, but this is how I work best, as I feel that one piece informs another. Having said that, it is at this point that I need help to sift through what is, or is not working, or cohering.
The 1-1 meeting helped me to refocus and helped by narrowing down ideas to press forward with. It might be worth mentioning that at this point, once you are out of the study arena it can be much more difficult to get this valuable feedback, so a solid group of peers that you can discuss work with, or even collaborate with will be worth it’s weight in gold.
