Change can’t happen without attention. Unless you just want to be on the receiving end of change . . . the stuff you can’t do anything to control. If you want to be navigating your own career, you’ll have to give time to the development of strategy and the execution.
Life is overwhelming. Careers demand more and more of our being. And still, if you don’t like how it’s going, you have to MAKE the time to go back to the drawing board.
How to make time:
- Wake up thirty minutes early
- Take one night a week that is sacred and cannot be scheduled
- Drop one obligation that you’ve been meaning to give up anyway
- Say no to one unnecessary meeting a week
- Cook enough food for two meals every time so you can save nights of cooking
- Outsource or delegate one household chore
What to do with that time:
- Research options you’ve been considering
- Make phone calls to network/meet up with people you’ve been meaning to sit with
- Increase your exposure in your industry
- Read a book that will guide you to decide what’s next (hint, hint: Now What? 90 Days to a New Life Direction)
- Redraft your resume
- Send out said resume
- Start the business you’ve been dreaming about as a side hustle
- Test the viability of an idea you’ve had
Please don’t tell me you need a change, but you don’t have time. You’ve got time for what you want to have time for. Now, you just have to want a change more.
