It happens slowly.
Tell me if this rings true.
You started your career or job with endless amounts of energy. You were bright- eyed, bushy-tailed, and the future was full of possibility.
You're uninspired by your work. You get the "Sunday Scaries." You browse job listings all day. You complain to your friends. You drive in. You drive home. Eat. Sleep. The weekend flies by. Rinse and repeat.
Meanwhile, you keep getting older and all of your colleagues move on to more meaningful jobs. For you, though, nothing changes.
It's downright depressing.
And, you've got all these questions bouncing around in your brain...
Do I need a new job?
Or do I need to show up differently in the one I have?
Should I ask for a raise?
Or move to a different department?
Do I need to move to a different industry entirely?
Should I edit my resume?
Start my own business?
Is it worth the risk?
You won't come up with any answers because these aren't the right questions.
Now. Let me ask YOU a question...
What do you really want?
Really. Stop and think about it for a minute.
If you don't know the answer to this question, you won't find it on a job website, or a podcast, or in advice from your friends...
Because the truth is that the answer is already within you.
The problem is that the answer is in pieces. And those pieces are covered in fear, negative self-talk, and other people's values. So you stall, and stall, and stall.
Now. Take a deep breath.
And get ready to dust off the pieces. To tame the fear. To figure out what matters to you.
And breathe out.
Because it's time to stop scrolling job sites endlessly.
It's time to stop trying to fit your passion into a pre-written job description.
It's time to stop stalling.
It's time to take a whole new approach to doing impactful, meaningful work.
Time to develop a real, actionable, do-able plan centered around your ambition, and not some company's hiring page.
An approach that starts with your values.
The very first step on this journey takes about 20 minutes and doesn't cost anything.
