Are you feeling less than jazzed about your career these days?
If you’re anything like many of my clients, the new year often tends to bring out a lot of questions related to their career path and prospects.
Questions like these:
- Am I loving my current work, company, contribution?
- Should I think about making my next career move?
- Would I be happier in another role or company?
- Is this work what I’m meant to be doing for the next several years… for the rest of my life?
- Am I happy with the lifestyle I’m leading?
- Is my work/life balance in check?
- Could I be earning more with another role or another company?
- How amazing would be if I could find a high paying role that would allow me the flexibility of working from home?
The last few questions were ones that a recent client of mine pondered midway through last year.
After several years in an amazing role and company, he started to get restless about a commute that had him driving over 2 hours a day, just to get to and from work, on a good day.
He started to wonder if his life would be more balanced if he gained back that time, which when you do the math adds up to 40+ hours commuting each month!
That’s basically an extra week per month spent driving to and from work.
The added strain and escalating costs started to wear on him to the point where he made the decision it was time for a career change, time for a lifestyle upgrade.
Together, we devised a plan of attack.
We put in place a 6 step plan that landed him the perfect 6-figure role, working from home, 80% of the time.
This may or may not be your personal goal but, whatever your career goal is, the steps are the same.
Here they are!
