How has your week been so far? In fact, how would you score your job-satisfaction in 2014 on a scale of 1 to 10 (where 10 is ‘Outstanding’)? Are your heartfelt goals around personal fulfilment also being met?
If you score your year at 5, or lower, remember there is good news. The weekend is close by and you can use it – in part – to help plan the improvements you want to make in your life.
If you need to put a smile on your face now perhaps you are ready for a mid-week laugh. Here then is a short BBC film about comic Jack Stretten concerning his life on the comedy circuit. He is clear about the relationship between his comic skills and the values he relies on in his work. He is also clear about his goal focus. He says “When I’m making someone laugh…that’s the best!”. How does that clear, heartfelt, vision compare to the relationship between your skills, your values and your understanding of your goals?
It may not be appropriate for you to take an alternative career path right now. Even so, over a cup of tea this weekend it is worth planning changes which will improve the rest of your year. Can you invest time on Saturday or Sunday to planning your brighter future?
Why not spend 30 minutes: taking stock of your skills; listing your core values; and using that information to determine the mixture of skills and values you want to use as the spring board to improve your life.
Having that information written down will definitely help establish the blueprint you rely on as you move forward. If improved job, or personal satisfaction, is the overarching goal you want to tackle in 2014 how will you begin to break that goal down into manageable pieces starting in March? Coaching support can boost your success in that process, so do use the Contact form to get in touch with me. I look forward to discussing how I can help you during your journey.
