There are a lot of articles written on where to start your career, and most of us get career advice at the beginning, when we are seeking a career for the first time. Rarely do we seek advice in the middle of our careers – and when we do, it’s usually when we are absolutely sure that we will quit someday soon, and want an alternate role.
It is important to think about where your career will lead you to at any stage and remember what you love and what you are passionate about.
So here’s a few questions I have for you:
Do you enjoy your role?
Are you succeeding in what you do?
Do you feel challenged?
Are you excited for what’s next?
If at any point you have stopped and answered no; then it is time to revisit your job and career. The reason why these are separated is because you may not love the day to day tasks of what you currently do, but you may be working towards something you are absolutely passionate about – and good for you!
We spend more time at work then we do at home with our loving families and friends. So it is important to do something you enjoy and look forward to.
No matter the stage of career you might be in, when you feel like it is not for you, it is time for a change!
What makes me an expert in this situation you ask? I have changed my career twice before I finally found what I love doing and am passionate about.
This is a tough decision to make, change overall is hard to go through, however I have till date not met anyone who has regretted changing their career for the right reasons, so I invite you to make that change and bring the colours of the rainbow to your life!
