I usually have guests on the show. Guests who share their career stories with us so we can learn from their experiences and get inspired by their journeys. Sometimes, we have expert guests, who share their knowledge and expertise in areas that are relevant and useful to your career pivot strategy and plans.
But today, it’s just going to be me!
Here’s what led to this episode. I’ve been running a pilot workshop on goal-setting for the last few weeks, and so my head is very much in goal-setting for 2018 gear. In preparing for the pilot workshop, I found myself reflecting on my career journey. Three things kept bubbling up. Three things that helped or contributed the most to my career pivot. Three things that I am most grateful today.
Interestingly, those things that I’m thankful for also point to important lessons learned for me. So, alongside each item on my gratitude list, I also have three things that I would do differently if I could have a Mulligan.
I want to share my reflections with you in this episode, not because I want to indulge in a little hop down memory lane. Whenever I listen to other people’s stories, I find that I always walk away with something relevant to reflect upon in my own story.
In sharing my experiences with you today, my hope is that you’ll find something here—a similar lesson, a tip that you can act upon, a spark of inspiration that helps in your own career pivot.
