On being and becoming…

I am really excited that an article I submitted to the Voluntary Sector Review has just been accepted. Getting published in a peer review journal has been a long old slog but  I had to attempt this a part of the requirements of my prof doc programme.

In my many moments of self doubt I have often lamented… I’m not an academic! On one occasion, I blurted this out to my cohort. In response, my very lovely, encouraging and supportive colleagues assured me that I had unique insights gained as a practitioner that are worth sharing academically.

One of them said, rather profoundly I thought, “we are all in the process of becoming. Whatever you become as a consequence of being on this programme, its great to get to know Patrick Goh before Patrick Goh has become Patrick Goh”.
