Contemplation or Distraction?

Holidays and short breaks in the summer are an ideal opportunity to take time away from day to day busyness to contemplate career issues that are bothering you, with greater perspective. Will you be taking some time for yourself this summer to contemplate? What questions do you need to ask yourself?

Are you considering a move? Applying for promotion? Need more flexibility?  Feel stuck but not sure why?

Taking the time to look beyond your feelings to pin down the answers to some key questions will provide insight that will enable you to take positive action to achieve what you want.

For example, if you are considering a move:

What are the real reasons for moving?

If you move, what role will align with your values, motivators, drivers, skills and expertise?

Can you clearly articulate what you a looking for to recruiters, future employers or your current employer?

What will your work life look like and feel like if you achieve your goals? 

Answering these questions may not be easy but greater clarity will enable you to step forward with more certainty and confidence.

Summer can also be the greatest distraction!  Holidays, weddings, BBQs, festivals, fairs and endless What’s On lists enable you to easily distance yourself from the issues that are bothering you. 

Will you be taking some time for yourself this summer to contemplate? What questions do you need to ask yourself?
