You know all the snow this week? Well they keep on saying, “Do not travel unless absolutely necessary.” I know they mean life or death/emergencies, mothers just about to give birth etc, so why don’t they say so? After all ‘necessary’ is so subjective. You can imagine some of the responses as the police and AA/RAC dig people’s cars out of snowdrifts:
“I was gagging for a cup of tea officer, but had run of milk”. “It was my first date with someone hot, I simply could not postpone.” “I had an interview for my dream job – there is no way I could miss it.” People’s behaviour is linked to their values – what is important to them – and their beliefs. I tell you one thing I believe – Mother Nature is the boss – she always wins!
How do you know when a career change is absolutely necessary? Some of my clients have taken 10 years to contact me about helping them create their new career after they have struggled on alone. I had a client this week who I helped achieve something she had wanted for 20 years. She was ecstatic and I was too – for her. If you dread coming to work in the morning, if you look ahead into the future and don’t feel excited at the prospect, if you find yourself low in energy or often ill, these are signals that you are resisting change.
