Want To Plan Your Escape??

I spoke to someone today who hates their job. Like many people, about 50% I’d say, they fell into their career by accident. They have 2 young children and commute 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. Not what you would call ‘quality of life’ or ‘work life balance’ or ‘job satisfaction’. When they had decided to do something about it and end the misery, you could hear the lightness in their voice. They said having made the decision; they could feel themselves smiling more. Read more on Want To Plan Your Escape??…

Small Things Make A Big Difference

I am quite simple, so I like simple things. How about you? I think little things make all the difference and I love seeing the light go on with clients.  Do you ever need to do something but keep on not getting around to it?

What’s Your ‘Plan B’?

If you got made redundant tomorrow, what would you do? I’m not trying to be a miserable kill-joy, it’s something worth thinking about so you are not caught ‘on the hop’.  Keeping your CV up to date is one thing. Key wording your profile and being active on Linkedin groups to raise your profile another.  Read more on What’s Your ‘Plan B’?…

In Love With Your Job?

I could have written a corny old post today about love and romance. But no. Bar humbug  

 

Do you love your work?  Few do. I love helping people work out what they love about work and how they can do more of it and get paid for it. Sometimes it’s a new job and other times a complete change of career.  A good thing to do is think of all the times in your life when you had a real high and what created them. The results can be surprising and the outcome could be that you rediscover a forgotten hobby or fall in love with your job all over again. Honest.

Is Your Work Working For You?

Research shows that between 30 and 45% of people want to change job. That is a hell of a lot of people not enjoying their work and feeling unfulfilled. Many of us fell into it by chance. Did you?

Career Change Dreams Up In Smoke?

Suffering from that ‘going back to work feeling’?

 
Reality after the festive season reminds many people of going back to school at the start of a new term. A feeling of dread; shining those shoes; buying a new fluffy pencil case; the who got the best Christmas gift parade, but mainly the sinking feeling.  Life can be so superspeed at work that it feels like being on a giant human hamster wheel.

How Subjective Is Subjectivity?

You know all the snow this week? Well they keep on saying, “Do not travel unless absolutely necessary.”  I know they mean life or death/emergencies, mothers just about to give birth etc, so why don’t they say so? After all ‘necessary’ is so subjective. You can imagine some of the responses as the police and AA/RAC dig people’s cars out of snowdrifts:

The Beauty Of Contrast

Isn’t contrast useful? After all, without illness we wouldn’t appreciate good health, a new career wouldn’t be new without having had an old career; if we had holidays all year round, they wouldn’t be as enjoyable; if we didn’t have pain, we wouldn’t recognise bliss; without being broke, we wouldn’t value money; if we hadn’t chosen the wrong partner, we wouldn’t know a better match.
