Maybe the opportunity for occurrence go down as we get older, but how many times have you had to ask yourself whether it was time to move on in your life?
A couple of very good friends of mine recently shared that opportunities have come up in their professional lives.
They're both doing well, well-established in their industries, and new work wasn't on their radar.
Opportunities presented themselves, opportunities that come with some risk and uncertainty.
As we talked about the opportunities, I asked them if they had really thought about why they'd make a move.
What would a move - a change - in your life be about?
Is it the desire for a new challenge?
Is it the need for new stimuli?
Is it money?
Is it waking up and asking yourself what the heck you are using your life for?
I've thought these things.
That's why I have this podcast and a host of other projects I'm working on.
A simple yet effective test may be whether you say something like, "Ugh! I've got to get up to go to work" when you get up in the morning.
Or, "Ugh, I've got to get home and deal with my partner."
There's nothing wrong with wanting change.
We can only grow as people when we push above and beyond what we already have been.
It's super critical and guiding, however, to really understand what is motivating that desire, because change for change-sake can be fruitless very quickly.
Accepting that it's time to move on from something is incredibly empowering, and yet must be used with great discernment.
Time goes on and on, every day. This is thee Adulthood:Revisited podcast.
I dunno about y'all, but in the last few years I've been trying to figure who I am.
I've asked myself who am I as a person, as a man, as a partner in relationship, who am I in business.
I wonder if who I am is really who I want to be
If not, when did it change, and what can I do to tap into who I really want to be.
If you've asked yourself questions like these, then I invite you to join me on this journey, Adulthood: Revisited.
