My decision to leave that job wasn't an impulsive one.
I had spent 18 months thinking, dreaming, planning, orchestrating, implementing, plotting, and envisioning my new career and how I would make the transition.
The First Six Months of My Quest Were the Hardest Part
I knew I wanted to make a big change, but I had no idea what I could do or what I wanted to do.
- I felt so much pressure to "figure" it out.
- I was confused about how to find the "right" answer.
- I feared that I would never "get it."
In my quest to figure it out, I asked myself so many questions...over and over and over again...that I fell into a big rut in my thinking. I remember feeling so frustrated because I couldn't seem to surface the new answers I was looking for.
Then one day I started asking two new questions. These questions opened me up to seeing new answers.
- How did I want to FEEL in my work? When I got up in the morning? When I started my work day? When I finished my work day?
- WHY did I want to do my work? What was the meaning behind wanting a new career? WHAT impact did I want to have?
Figuring Out What I Wanted to Do Was Just the Beginning
