By now I hope you have been taking some time for yourself to reboot and re-energize your spirit. While you are doing this process everyday for 10 minutes (yes you need to do this for yourself every day to see results!), I want you to start thinking about what you want to do next in your career and your life. Where you started may not be where you wanted to end up but here you are...daily commute, deadlines, office politics, restructuring, red tape, keeping up appearances, grunt or too much work and the list goes on. Now let's add the family/friends to this daily grind. Is this how you wanted to be when you grew up? I want you to allow yourself to start imagining a life that better reflects who you are now. One that is more connected with your values. A small example for me was about not wanting to wake up with an alarm clock before the sun even came up! Having my own business has allowed to have this little luxury.
Start by asking yourself these questions:
What do I value in my life right now? (money, time, travel, family, freedom, etc.)
Does my current career/life reflect those values?
What would I really like to be doing with my life right now?
What is ONE step I can take to move in that direction?
This small step could be starting to do some research or meeting up with people in that field. Or perhaps it is even simpler than that, just start imagining it, thinking about it and let it simmer in your conscious mind and let it organically grow from there.
