What I’m up to
Several areas where I’m focusing. Most of these are personal, while others are work-related.
First and foremost, as a renewed follower of Jesus Christ, I dedicate a large portion of my life to our Faith. This happens every day around the clock for the most part. I wholeheartedly believe that these lessons and practices lay the foundation of who I am, and I hope to always remain on this path.
Continuing with the same theme — as a family man, I’m currently devoted towards helping my wife and kids cultivate their faith. We pray daily and nightly, prioritize Mass, we pilgrimize our travels, and do our best to hold each other accountable to what we learn through our beliefs.
I’m having a lot of fun with my current role as a Tech Lead for a major project initiative, though I should admit the work is highly demanding and requires a different focus than the individual contributor work that I’m accustomed to.
On the technical side, I’m enjoying the return to the whole ReactJS ecosystem, by way of building a new application with NextJS 13.
Day by day, I’ve been practicing various areas of leadership while taking courses and listening to podcasts that help shape my understanding of good leadership.
I’m also proud to mention that I have a great leadership & management mentor whom I sync with every two weeks. I’m a firm believer in mentorship, and in that dynamic, I’m privileged to have the opportunity to grow and reflect on my people/project management skills. I’m aiming to apply what I learn by transitioning into a Manager role. 🤞🏼
Lately, I’m revisiting several practices around building a strong, well-balanced character. I’m doing through the readoption of mindsets, gathering feedback, and working on personal development.
I’m listening to a lot of Eric Thomas again, the same person who I feel inspired me to change my life, and I’m excited to see where this takes me this time around.
