Throughout the course of each of our careers, we go through different chapters of that story. Each chapter from beginning to end has us in different jobs or positions and gives us the opportunity to develop new skills and make new mistakes. Along the way we have the opportunity to learn new lessons also.
I’m turning the page to a new chapter of my career now. Leaving a position I love with a company I’ve been with for years. It’s always bittersweet moving on to that next chapter, but the way you handle it can greatly affect the outcome. Some choose to embrace the new chapter and dive in, while others tend to dwell in the past more and be more defensive about the changes in the next chapter.
I for one am excited to dive in and embrace this new opportunity with all the new challenges that come along with it. I’ll keep updating this as time goes on.
I also apologize for being AWOL for awhile, but I’ll be back more consistently again now!
Keep your eyes peeled for the next update!
Monday Morning, the most dreaded time of the week, or is it?
This depends entirely as your perspective. If you go in thinking that you’re heading into just another work week, then it shall be just that, another ordinary week full headed off by a Monday full of dread.
Rather if you see this as the opportunity to have a brand new week of opportunities to go out and win, them it shall be just that.
Go forth and seize the opportunities this week brings to you!
It’s time to get away. Time to escape the hustle of bustle of everyday life for a short period of time and come back fresh. Whether it’s a weekend away camping, or a week on a tropical vacation, this time can be crucial to you being able to maintain the high level of focus and productivity people like me thrive on in day to day life.
If you don’t take this time to recharge you risk burn out, a very real thing these days. As we move into the more technology fuelled era of being able to work anywhere, it seems the days get longer and longer. You can work from anywhere, and if you’re motivated then you tend to find the work unavoidable whenever you have a free moment. Taking some time to disconnect frees you from this constant worry about work.
I’m spending the next week on a vacation and doing my best to avoid the temptations of the work to allow myself to truly relax and let my body and brain recharge to the 100% level I’m used to them running at on a day to day basis.
Have a great week everyone!
