Wise Words.

“There are three kinds of men: The ones that learn by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence and find out for themselves.”

Will Rogers

Test Yourself.

Progress, not perfection. Keep moving forward.

Career Change 101.

Switching careers is more than just a job swap.

It's a chance for you to figure out what you want from life, grow personally, and define what success means to you.

If you're after a job that brings you joy, more cash, a new challenge, or one that aligns with your beliefs, here's your roadmap for making a career change work for you.

Redefine Your “Dream Job”

“A dream job is a job that you love or one that allows you to do what you love.”

Sometimes, the "dream job" isn't about the title or the paycheck.

It's about doing work that fulfills you or work that allows you to live out your passions.

Before you jump into the job hunt, think about what really matters to you in your work.

Creativity and problem solving? Schedule flexibility? Being part of a team?

If you're not happy where you are, and before making a move, consider talking to your boss about tweaking your job so it fits your life better.

A small change could reignite your enthusiasm without having to start over somewhere new.

Do The Inner Work

“A new job, new zip code, or more money can’t save you. Only you can. It’s an inside job.” - Stop Living on Autopilot

It’s easy to think a new job, location, or bigger paycheck will fix everything.

But the truth is, satisfaction comes from within.

You must know what drives you, what you value, and get clear on what you want your life to look and feel like.

This self-reflection is crucial and might make you face some hard truths about yourself.

Remember, changing your external circumstances won't automatically lead to personal happiness.

It's an inside job.

Build Your Network (Before You Need It)

“It’s not who you know. It’s who knows what you want.”

Your network is your most powerful asset with making a career move.

Creating real connections now means you'll have support and opportunities when you're ready to make a change.

Meeting up for coffee, that walk and talk, or lunch may seem like an inconvenience, but it pays dividends.

Add value to others so they'll be there to back you up later.

The Difference Maker - A Coach

“No one who has accomplished anything of significance did it alone. Neither should you.”

Achieving great things doesn't happen in isolation.

A great coach can provide the guidance, clarity, and frameworks you need to make great decisions and see measurable progress.

A coach will help you set goals, build on your strengths, get out of your own way, and tackle any obstacles.

This support will fast-track your progress, boost your confidence, and help you begin a new chapter.

Reintroduce Yourself

“Allow me to reintroduce myself. My name is HOV!” -Jay Z, Public Service Announcement

Don't assume people know what you're up to or what you're aiming for.

Regularly update your network about your work, professional accomplishments, and goals.

Asking for advice or opinions and being of value keeps you on their radar.

This makes it easier to find opportunities without the traditional job hunt hassle.

It also means they'll think of you when new chances pop up.

Patience and Due Diligence

“Don’t make a long term decision over a short term situation.”

In the rush to escape dissatisfaction or chase a new opportunity, patience and due diligence often fall by the wayside.

However, making a long-term career change based on a short-term situation can lead to regret.

Resist the urge to make hasty decisions based on your changing emotions.

Make decisions based on your standards and values to ensure your next move is not just another jump, but a strategic leap towards where you want to be.

By following these steps, and armed with patience, you'll make a transition that’s not just a change, but a step towards a meaningful career.

Get This.

I can’t remember that last time I wore a pair of Wranglers. But when I saw a good friend wearing these joggers I knew I wanted a pair. They work great for a workout, dropping the kids off at school, or for dinner with your wife at a restaurant. Even better?

Read. Listen. Watch.

The power of small breaks during a workday. Why children need risk, fear, and excitement in play. Best ways to train for power at home. The paradox of an infinite universe. Third shift bars are dying. He walked away from millions on his terms.
