Here you are, at home and back to the reality that your future is now in your hands and no one else’s.
You have been laid off work, you are job hunting, your contract ended, you have gone away and now you are back, what next? Leave the distractions of home and go somewhere you can concentrate on you.
My advice to you is this, take some time out by going to the library or the park, if the weather is nice out there and write down a list of what you DESIRE from life.
I can hear you say – What?! Is that all she has to say at this point in time when I am panicking about not knowing what to do… Remember I have walked the walk and want to help you achieve your goal in a stress free manner.
The reality is this, if you have been working for a company for a very long time, you probably have not sat to think about what you want to do if the job no longer existed and if you have thought about it when working, then you know what to do next.
This write-up is for those of you who never really had the chance to think about anything else, other than the job at hand. Sometimes though, our circumstances change and so do what we want from life.
Write down what you want from life. Now is the time to think about work/life balance, remember its about a second career. Put it down under headings such as:
HOME DESIRE/BODY DESIRE/CAREER DESIRE/FINANCE DESIRE/RELATIONSHIP DESIRE/HEALTH DESIRE/STUDY DESIRE and any other desire that you can think of.
Once you have penned these down the general list above, then it is time to pen down your true priority list, that is what you need to do now.
Theses two lists will take some time, as you think through that is for sure. Its ok to go back on them if need be. Once you have written down your true priority list, then it is time to think about how to accomplish what you have written down.
Be true to yourself
