When I work with clients who are searching for the best way to redirect their career, they typically want to focus on the logical, practical skills that they have. Before they even describe those scenarios I know their heart isn't in it!
Why go for a career that doesn't engage you?
Why limit your options by focusing on what you should do?
If you have an urge, a craving, or a desire to explore a topic, track and industry, read about a solution -- do it!!
You don't have to KNOW how it's all going to turn out. In fact, you CAN'T know! It's in the exploration that your ideas will evolve and new insights will coalesce in ways that bring out career ideas you never would have thought possible when you started your quest.
So...starting today...begin to listen to what's calling to you. Follow the thread. Collect the clues. When the time is right, weave them together to create your new direction.
(And...along the way, pretend you are this bear! Take time to smell the flowers (savor the clues) that you discover along your journey!)
"Our deepest wishes are whispers of our authentic selves. We must learn to respect them. We must learn to listen." ~ Sarah Ban Breathnach
I love this quote because it reminds us to listen to our own desires!
