Outside of work: I've been sorta kinda active in the community wherever I have been (school, college, local community).
Nothing tremendously impressive (like executive-director-of-a-non-profit)
but demonstrable and consistent with my interests in general.
I have exhibited *no* signs whatsoever of leadership potential at work!
mainly because well..err..how do you put it..umm..i have been..what do you call that..uhhn..
1. No raise or promotion in the past 3 years.
2. Not seen as anything more than a lowly and asocial *wince* software engineer.
3. Hardly any social capital at work.
*dark clouds of depression brooding around these brutal facts*
So what can I possibly do now to rebuild my professional self?
and more disconcertingly, why is there such a disconnect between my work-self and the other-self, in performance and personality.
Does this mean I can't really succeed at things-that-really-matter?
