A new year, a new start, a new career

Well it’s been months since I’ve been able to sit and write. Many reasons, two seasons and big changes. As 2010 winds down I find myself in that place that so many others have in the past two years. Unemployment is looming. While I cannot say that I am pleased to be searching for career opportunities, I can say that I am ready to embrace it.

This is referred to as Career Transition. It is one of those phrases that gingerly describes a tough time. But transition it is. This is something that you embrace or you spin your wheels until you can accept. I have moved to embrace. While I cannot say that I am enjoying this, the transition gives me an opportunity to evaluate, reflect and reinvent.

It is true that this door is closing, and that is ok, another will open. The challenge is to be ready for that door to open. To have done the work, and have the confidence to move through that door and be ready to capitalize on the opportunities that present themselves. The whole thing has little to do with luck and everything to do with effort, resolve, openness and most importantly my ability to not make all it about me even though at times I so desperately want it to be all about me and my career needs. My best efforts and my feelings of greatest serenity are attached to my efforts to help others.

So this Holiday season as I let go of my current career I seek to find the next and that will come with networking, helping others find their next career, keeping my eyes open for that next door and being greatful for all that I have.

Please let me know how I can help you.

Just a guy trying to simplify his life in a complicated world. Finding out along the way that much of what he thought was real, is little more than an illusion created by others and sustained by his own mind.

  1. It is all about the new doors that open and recognizing that everything really does happen for your highest good. I think it can be easy to fall into the trap of getting upset and not seeing the beauty in challenges, but they are always there around the corner. Thanks for pointing my attention to that with this post.
