The Sistine Chapel

If you had to ask me my profession, I’d say: “I am a writer.”

But, I am also a Content Manager.
And a Team Manager.
And an HR.
And an Operations Lead.
And also, Content Curator.

Also, a good friend (hopefully).

Recently, when I decided to make a career move from Content Manger to multiple other hats – Content Writer, Content Manager, a colleague asked if I regret the decision of two years back from going from a specialist writer to a generalist Content Manager.

My answer would be no.

When Michelangelo was asked to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, he said to the Pope: I am not a painter, I am a sculptor.

However, eventually Michelangelo painted the Sistine Chapel, that became a masterpiece.
It ruined his eyesight in the process.
And his health.

However, he was an artist.
A dedicated human being, far beyond being a human being.
Someone who personified dedication, depth and commitment to art, and also to go beyond who you describe yourself to be.

Which is what, I chose to do as a Content Manger, beyond being a writer.

And it was the right decision.
