It’s okay to not know where you are in your career or personal life. And, not only is unknowing acceptable, it’s desirable. Unlike a walk in the wilderness, where it’s important to know your way, appreciate career or personal life wandering at certain times. When wandering in your career or personal life happens, cherish this time for greater self-understanding. While the wilderness holds dangers that could prevent you from physically coming home, short-term career or personal unknowing is an opportunity to come home to your values and aspirations.
How did you feel after your last workplace performance review? Since then, do you look forward to your job every morning? Does the workday fly by? At the end of each day are you excited about tomorrow? Maybe your job is no longer a challenge and you feel unfulfilled? You want more and you don’t know what to do. You ask yourself, “Do I want to feel unfulfilled next year or longer and how do I find job fulfillment?”
