I remember when my internal clock was up at my retail management job. I was exhausted and unhappy, and as much as I tried to hide it, it showed. The problem was I didn’t have a plan to leave.
Sometimes the only thing we know is this: we don’t know what we want to do or where to go.
Guess what? That’s OK. All that means is you have made the first step in a new career journey, identifying that you want a new space, a new start, a new job. So many people stay in their career because they are afraid of even the idea of the first step—afraid to think of what they want, and they have no plan to get started.
This is why I am such an advocate of working with career coaches and counselors. They can help you create a plan and organize your life so that you can identify where you want to be and how you are going to get there. It’s amazing the impact a resume update or some tips on interviewing or creating a career map can have on your vision for yourself.
Take the time and invest in yourself. You have the power to change your life, whatever direction you choose.
