I have more power than I realize......

Had my review today, and my boss made a comment that stuck out in my head - "You have more power than you realize, and you are not using it" Woo hoo - I like power...just wish it was a super power! Like flying or mind reading.....now I just need to figure out what exactly all of my power is!

I'll have a little bit longer to do that.....According to my boss he would like to keep me here for the next 5 years, but he does realize that one will not happen. He did ask me to give him some advance notice before I decide to make the move back to the US as he wants to ensure that I return to a position that is right for me, and since my exposure is fairly wide and high-up, he does not see that as being a problem. I guess that the Europe President was extremely happy with the web report that I published in December....when he asked for it in November, he did not think that it would be possible for us to actually provide him with what he was looking for.....and me being me, I did exactly what he wanted! Go me! lol

My current data mining activities are kinda going to go bye bye...instead I am to focus on the process and set-up of these activities and let someone else do them...perfect! Also look into more automation of key business indicators.

A few downsides. I am too modest apparently, and I also need to be more proactive and start using my knowledge to position myself higher and in better jobs.

Date to move back to the US......still unknown....I would like to be back in the US before summer time though! Although, if I stay through the summer I'll be able to go to the Belgian Beer Festival in September, AND see the flower carpet in August once again....hmmm....tough decision to make!
