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.
