Changing careers… Just the idea of doing so generates a plethora of different feelings: Fear, envy, uncertainty, relief. The internet is crowded with advice on careers. Here's some of my addition to it (laughing emoji) To change careers means leaving the known for the unknown, the certain for the hypothetical, the concrete for the abstract, the real for the projected. It also implies facing the judgment of others.
After a long pause. The best friend is finally on the verge of giving up on making you understand the positives of life, you take a deep breath and say - Enough Is Enough; It Is What It Is. And at that instant, life feels a lot different. Cue some fantasy music in the background kind of different. Not gonna lie, I myself, like the millions on this Earth, have had a tough (let's be honest - worst) years of my life. It's really been difficult.
Letting go sucks. It’s hard. It’s painful. It’s uncomfortable. And usually, when it’s time to let something or someone go, we realize it’s something we probably should have done a while ago. We like to white knuckle as long as possible whether it be our own bad ideas or our own bad hires. But keeping people and ideas beyond their expiration date can destroy morale and the fabric of your company culture. Think about Borders Books. When Amazon came on the scene, Barnes and Noble fortified their online store. Borders meanwhile said, “Let’s keep doing what we’ve always done” which was to focus on their brick and mortar stores. Bye Bye, Borders. This has happened to countless companies. The same old people make the same old decisions not to let go, move on and evolve.
