If you are thinking about what is next in your life, ask yourself these three simple questions:
- What has you seriously considering “what’s next?” now, versus 6 months ago or 6 months from now? (Don’t simply answer, “You guys asked me to consider it!” Remember that some people will start to read this post but not make it to the end. If you are reading it, it may be because something has spoken to you.)
- What would you want from your ally and coach that would support you in your efforts?
- What in your history (not just your work history) demonstrates and illustrates what you say (or are beginning to think) you want to offer in the future?
It makes a tremendous difference to have someone as coach, ally, and mirror as you ponder these questions, so take some time to consider who that might be in your life. There are many people who can serve in that role, but if you don’t have someone, consider career coaching with us.
