I have spent the morning asking myself some questions that relate to my career/future, something as you may well know that has been bothering me of late (i.e. the past year and half)
I look back at the past few years and I wonder ‘Why did I not just commit to change at the outset?’
Of course hindsight is 20/20 as they say, and I did not know then what I know now. Having said that I feel as though I am still clutching at something that I know I passionately dislike – my current career. I put this down to fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of change, fear of failure, fear of taking action. Conversely however, I don’t feel like I’ll succeed in my current career anyway, so this really is a moot point.
But here I am again. Gripped with fear.
I find myself at yet another crossroads. No more or less significant than the multitude of crossroads I have experienced in my adult life. They are the same questions each time and the same excuses too. Usually in this chronology:
A) What do I want to do?
B) How can I make the transition easier?
C) Can I make the transition easier?
D) Can I even make the transition?
E) What’s the least uncomfortable route to that destination?
F) Are there any other destinations I could choose from?
G) Maybe I can tolerate this personal hell for a little longer?
I realise the only significance in this situation is the decision I make and ultimately, the action I take.
