So you want a career change or to find your dream job?
This is where you have me screaming “ARE YOU CRAZY???!!!”
This is a common mistake women make – associating the negative emotions with work. Very often, after a few career coaching sessions and getting them to do a few exercises, the women will usually discover that it is not the work that is making them feel that way, but something else. It could be that there is a strain in the marriage or relationship; or perhaps there is a change in their life circumstances like an ageing parent that needs more attention and so the priorities have shifted.
So what should you do?
Step 1: Take a piece of paper and list down the negative emotions you are experiencing everyday. Write down all the words to describe your feelings as you get up in the morning and get ready for work. Then as you travel to work on the bus, train or drive, how do you feel? As you walk into your workplace, go to your desk, switch on your computer, meet your boss, your colleagues – how are you feeling? As you pack up and head home, what emotions are you experiencing?
List down all the feelings that are making you feel dissatisfies, unfulfilled or unmotivated.
Step 2: As you go through this list, as yourself: “Where else besides work do I feel this way? What else besides work is making me feel this way?” Look at your life – your family, your relationships, your personal development – just a few to start with. Do these feelings also surface in these areas of your life?
