…………what you’ve always done, you always get what you’ve always got. Sounds obvious, but it’s amazing how many of us think that if we keep bashing away at something we’ll get results. Step back, try something different, maybe walk away for good. Tenacity is one thing, but never ending pointless persistence is, well, pointless.
I offer a two hour session on career direction and start off with what seems a simple question; “What do you really enjoy doing? So much so, that you would do it for nothing” The answers that come back are interesting. We often think that the things that come easily to us and that we do well are easy for everyone. Because they are easy to us, we place small value on them. “Anyone can do that” Hmmm!
