Making A Big Career Transition

Making A Big Career Transition

  • The first step is to ask yourself why you want to change your career and risk a secure job that is your bread and butter.
  • Find ways to get a feel for your new position to better understand the new role you are considering.
  • Be honest with yourself and think with an objective mind.
  • Keep the long-term vision in mind, thinking ahead about what could happen in the next 20 or 30 years with your decision.
  • Write your future autobiography in advance, with as much detailing as possible.
  • How we spend our days is how our life turns out to be, and each hour counts.

What You Wanna Do

There is a need to assess yourself by asking the following:

  1. What is my main goal or vision?
  2. Am I doing the things that need to be done every day to achieve my main goal?
  3. Will my future self regret my current career choices?

We need to write down the steps that would make our old self proud of us, along with the problems that we may have to handle. We need to be aware, curious and adventurous in our approach.

When You Will Make The Mark

  • Expect people to reject your work, and don’t get bogged down by multiple rejections.
  • Remember that you just need one door to be opened for you even if ninety-nine doors are slammed shut on your face.
  • At the same time, it is good to be realistic and not set any impossible timeframes.
  • Small actions compound over time, so we need to build a consistent routine with failsafe measures.
  • You can also have a Plan B if things do not work out.
