Do you ever wonder what should be your next career step?
What type of work would bring you more joy and satisfaction?
I know I did.
Three years ago, I remember looking into the future and trying to see myself climbing the corporate ladder. I could feel in my body and heart that neither the job of my boss nor his boss’s job were for me. I was fed-up with internal politics, lack of open communication, and repetitive work. I couldn’t resist and thought: What the hell am I doing here? Wasting my time and my life.
Then one day, I realized that I was asking myself a wrong question.
Ultimately, it’s less about – What’s your next career step? AND more – What kind of lifestyle do you wish for yourself/your family and what are your values?
Are you thriving on 9am to 5pm OR … Do you want more time flexibility?
Do you enjoy having clearly defined role and responsibilities OR… Would you rather prefer more creative freedom and task variety?
Do you want to work for a secured paycheck OR… Have an unlimited potential for your profit growth?
These are just a few questions, that can help you start your own exploration. AND let me be clear here – there are no better and worst jobs or lifestyles. Everyone likes different things and that’s cool!
What I encourage you to do for your long-term happiness and satisfaction – is to define what great lifestyle means to you by visualising “Your Perfect Day At Work”.
These 5 questions can help you start:
Where would I be?
Who would be with me?
What would I be doing?
How would I feel?
What steps do I need to take to start making this more of a reality?
I believe in you and your dreams!
With love and appreciation,
