Logic Of The Day: 22.08.2019
Small, consistent steps forward can lead to monumental changes. Most people stay stuck in an unfulfilling career because they are afraid of stepping outside their comfort zone, or they feel overwhelmed at the thought of making a big transition.
As the ancient Chinese philosopher and writer, Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” So just focus on that next phase.
Perhaps the career you want to transition to requires additional education or certifications. Now is the time to research those programs (maybe you can even complete those requirements during evenings and on weekends) and determine what additional training you will need.
Network with people in the field you are thinking of entering to get a sense of the daily grind and if it’s something you might enjoy. Find a coach or a mentor to help you through this phase. Most importantly, create a short and long-term transition plan with concrete milestones to hold you accountable.
It’s never too late to make a career transition. The key is to know yourself, open your mind, find support, and take small, consistent steps.
What you want exists—don’t settle until you get it!
