Feeling stuck in your career? Here's how to reinvent it
Is your work turning monotonous or are you feeling a strong urge to go on a long holiday?
These are the signs of a need to explore your passion again and make your career interesting by reinventing it.
How to go about the career reinvention?
The very first step is to take out time to draw a clearer picture of where you want to take your career. Make the most of this time and focus on the work you enjoy the most. Think of questions like "Where do I see myself 3 years down the line if I continue working for the same industry?" or "Do I still love my job as I used to when I started?" Other questions to ask yourself are:
- What type of job would I have if I change industry?
- What kind of hours would I work?
- What type of company would I work for?
- Will I be able to gel into the kind of work culture?
- How much money would I make?
- How would I handle stress, my workload, and deadlines?
- How would I successfully be balancing work and life?
Answer to these questions will help you assess your current industry and company.
While answering, don't worry about the right or wrong. Just, follow your heart. There is an inner sense of peace and completion, love and compassion when you allow yourself to follow your heart though it does not guarantee the success. However it often has its own reward. And then you don’t repent in the future to not to have given a try to what you've always wanted to do.
Steve Jobs once said:
"Have the courage to follow your intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." So just don't let past mistakes or choices cloud your answers.
You will be able to reinvent your career if you decide what you want, and then take action to get it. Without having any definite path, you will be no less than a rover that wanders aimlessly.
