Big questions. Important questions, for sure. And no matter the answer, you can be sure you won't get any closer to it unless you make space to work toward it today.
Right. I know you're thinking this is one that falls in the "easier-said-than-done" bucket. After all, if it were that simple, more people would be doing it. Instead, we live in a world where close to two-thirds of the working population is disengaged and unhappy at work.*
But it doesn't have to be that way.
Because the other side of the equation is that we also live in a world of opportunities never before seen. Technology has lowered the barriers to entry into many industries, such that options once considered out of reach are now entirely possible. Now more than ever, we have choices.
The thing is, you won't be able to see—let alone take advantage of—the opportunities unless you have a clear direction, a strategy that works in today's workplace and economy, and a set of action plans that can move you forward.
Without those three, your mind will be pre-disposed to seeing only what is in front of you. This then feeds the belief that you haven't got any options and to feeling stuck. Not good!
Taking active control of your career direction is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
The Break Free Workshop is a guided, step-by-step online program that helps you get clear on your overall career intentions and direction.
In this six-week workshop, you will create a strategy that aligns with your circumstances and works well in today's fast-changing new economy. You will develop a keen sense of your priorities and constraints and develop a plan that takes those into consideration. Finally, you will select a chief initiative that's intended to gain momentum and push you forward in the short term.
