Career changes are some of the biggest shifts we will make. They often involve some retraining and will impact your personal life.
When you manage the situation through the lens of a few mental models, you can clarify which direction to go and find a path to get there.
Change will never be right unless it aligns with what you want to get out of life.
Do you know where you want to go? There's no point just moving at speed without knowing where you want to go. When you articulate your desired direction, you give yourself a clear purpose in your career.
Once you know where you want to be, work backwards to where you are now. Carefully consider all the steps in-between in reverse order.
Once you identify your requirements, you can use that list to evaluate opportunities.
Knowing what skills you already have will reveal what you can repurpose.
We often fail to realize how versatile our existing experience is. Being good at presenting the monthly status update doesn't mean that you're good at presenting monthly status updates. It means you can articulate yourself well, analyze information for a diverse audience, and build networks to get the correct information. Consider what else those skills can be used for.
To find out what your dream job will be like, try to get an accurate picture of what the day-to-day is like. No job is 100% fulfilling all of the time.
Talk to people doing the job you want. Talk to people in the organization. Talk to the ones that enjoy it and to the ones who quit.
Once you know what direction you want, planning for change is vital.
Two models are useful to help us identify what we need to plan.
Once you have narrowed down your options for a new career,, consider these questions: Which one would you bet on for being the better choice one year later? How much are you willing to bet on it?
Doing this exercise will not guarantee that any choice will be the right one. It helps you quantify your thinking based on the knowledge you do have available.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
