5 Signs It's Time for You to Change Careers

5 Signs It's Time for You to Change Careers | Business Start-ups | Scoop.it

Many people hate change; contemplating the unknown is scary. So many stick with familiar things even though they no longer fit. This is especially true of careers. Sometimes people get stuck in a career direction or work environment that makes them terribly unhappy, and they stay there because it's tough to change careers once you have gained experience, power, and good compensation.

 

People often end up in the wrong careers by accident. They start out with a job and become proficient, so they advance and make a good living. They may even start a company in that field. They get so focused on growth, meeting objectives, or making the money to support their lifestyle, they don't realize how toxic their life has become.

James Cracknell's insight:

Recognise any of these? - I felt many of them in my career but one that is not mentioned is guilt. Guilt that you are doing a job that many would crave for; guilt that you feel this way at all; guilt that you constantly keep asking that there must be more to life yet how would others that you love feel about a sudden urge to change?

Sometimes you just end up following the wrong career path and it takes someone else to objectively point it out. Here are 5 signs you can identify on your own.

If you recognise these signs then it may be time to consider a career change.

I left School before any of these became too engrained. I look back in incredible experiences with students and some colleagues with considerable fondness. Other colleagues and bosses less so.

This is a good tool for all small businesses (even solo-preneurs) to actually plan what it is you wish to accomplish.

Remember, goals are merely thoughts unless they are written down.

John Norman's curator insight, February 24, 4:36 AM

This provides 7 common sense steps but I would be interested to know how many will actually do step #1 and evaluate their results to date.Remember the old adage : If you cannot measure it then how are you going to manage it. In project management terms you need to set the base line in order to get a realistic view of progress and hence your ROI on your hard earned marketing dollars. Get step 1 right and the rest will be of immense value to your business.

This excellent article, is aimed at the small business owner wanting to have a go at promoting their own business, and it offers good advice on how to proceed without making too many mistakes when doing so.
