In this blog, Jessica Carson shares some of the questions she uses to reflect on her work, what motivates and inspires her, and how to decide into which projects to invest her passion:
As a creative person I love the excitement of new projects, new challenges, new connections. I feel very lucky to work in a field where I can use my creativity. I find it hard to say no to the possibility to be involved in new projects. I decided in the last few years that it was important to reflect more on how I use my energy and reflect on how to make decisions about how I spend my energy and time.
The core reflection has been about how I can be satisfied and fulfilled in my work but also about the contribution I would like to make. It is clear to me that the world needs to become, fairer, more tolerant and sustainable. I want to grow as a global citizen and to create spaces where others can grow.
Having engaging in an in-depth review of and reflection on my practice over an extended period of time, I summarized my desires, values, and motivations. It has been a very enriching experience. I am sharing these as an encouragement to others to reflect on their practices.
