I don't really have a lot to say about this topic, but it's been on my mind a lot lately and I thought I'd share. So...
Wow, did that idea resonate with me. I realized that librarianship, and more specifically the marketing/outreach and strategic planning parts of my job, were my personal asymptote. Here are some of the signs:
- I'm always looking for a new challenge in librarianship. A new program? A new partnership? Yes, please.
- I am voracious, although selective, in the way I seek professional development opportunities. Will this help me get better at my job and/or prepare me for a job I want in the future? Bring it on, then.
- I'm never quite satisfied with the work I do. I'm constantly striving to improve and to learn from my past successes and failures.
I'm wondering how many other people feel this way about librarianship. Do any of you? How so?
