Pick Yourself, This Is How
brantthompson.com
 
Remember last week where we talked about waiting for someone else to pick you out of your worklife misery?
 
Number one, did you decide you need to move at all?
 
Move from misery–as I call it–is something you need to decide is applicable to you. I hope you are not miserable at all and are rather quite content.
 
If you are satisfied in your job, career, and vocational track, you don’t need to go anywhere. If this is you, you are among the 13% who actually like going to work (read this article from the Washington Post). And I solute you, for you have found your place.
 
However, if you are indeed among the remaining 87% of the population who feel they need a change in their worklife…well, you need to make a plan to change.
 
So you have decided to pick yourself. Congratulations! But you are scared a little now. And that’s okay.
 
Let’s step back a moment. And breathe.
 
This whole thing freaks a lot of folks out, because they hate change. But remember, to make a plan to change, doesn’t means that you are going to walk into your boss’s office and quit tomorrow.
 
No, to ‘make a plan’ in your case might mean to make a 2-year commitment to go take some night classes at your local community college to enhance your marketable job skills.
 
Or for another, it might mean to join a networking group where they can meet new people one night a week to expand their horizons and get new ideas.
 
And then to another, to make a plan might include simply sitting down with their supervisor and asking what is the best way to get promoted in their company. Then get onto that proven track.
 
You see… Not too terrible now is it?
 
Pick yourself, then a make a plan.
 
Have great start to your week!
