‘A lack of vision… being unable to see anything different, can keep people from choosing to take action on the question, “Should I quit my job?”‘
This from Jennifer Bridges, who, in the video below, helps you sort out those mixed feelings to make a decision and plan to make the next step in your career. View the video on YouTube at this link.
Bridges says taking vacations or getting out of your normal environment can help with that. Gong to conferences and getting ideas of what’s coming, and how to prepare for something new, can help, too.
‘People aren’t willing to move their feet and take action if they’re not sure of where they’re going.’
- Where are you now?
- What are the things you really love?
- What do you not like doing anymore?
- Where do you want to go next?
What’s the path to get from where you are now, to where you want to go?
‘I think it’s very important to have an accountability partner,’ she says. Sometimes people fall into patterns and recreate the same scenarios. A partner ‘can help you be accountable to take action, and also, monitor and track your progress.’ A partner like this can help you with tracking where you’re getting stuck and celebrate milestones all along the way.
Here’s where I can help.
Work with me to help you be accountable to making your change from where you are now, to where you want to go. I would add more questions to the above list. I would add:
- What are you doing where you are now?
- What will you do when you get to where you want to be?
These are from the Four Questions, which is part of a series in Mirror, an eWorkshop for reflection.
