Here is a quote from one of my career coaching clients in Chicago:
“As an adult you have to react to a lot and if you are not careful you start to process life through a lot of filters and automatic reactions. This filtering may have been efficient for me, but I was losing sight of my best self, and what I truly wanted out of my career.”
Stop reacting – Start living and planning. You have to lead your life, and don’t let it lead you. Winners make things happen and losers let things happen. One of the reasons we can get stuck in a career that we don’t enjoy, is because we spend too many years just reacting to what happens to us at work, instead of proactively planning and taking the reins.
How do you take the reins?
1) You have to have a clearly defined vision and set of goals.
2) Make a plan based on the vision and the goals.
3) Uncover and learn how to overcome obstacles or fears that get in your way, and where you are selling yourself short in your work.
4) Set and follow a schedule to revisit your plan every 6 months.
