Are you facing a career inflection point and just cannot get clarity on the options? This is a really frustrating place to be. You want to make a change, but the stakes feel high and every option has pros and cons.
Here are some key takeaways on how to navigate uncertainty:
1️⃣ Understand Your Ambivalence: Thinking about making a career change often stirs up conflicting emotions. Acknowledge the discomfort and take a close look at your values, priorities, and professional identity- who you are seen as today and who do you want to be? If you look back on this moment 10 years from now, what decision would make you proud?
2️⃣ Decisions are not forever. And, most often there is not one right answer. You might make a change that you don’t stick with forever, or even for long, but make a decision and take action. Whatever happens with that choice, you will quickly continue to learn about what you want and what’s important to you.
Don’t fear complexity—sometimes you have to dive in and trust yourself for a more satisfying, authentic career. 🌟
