Is this the happiest time in your career?

Where is your path taking you?  Have you decided what you want and planned for it?

If not, how do you know if you are going to get there?  It is easy to be happy when things are going well in your career, but the moment things start getting crazy and so difficult that you don’t know if you can continue down the path, this is the moment you realize you may need a plan.

If you are not happy in your job or career, what are you going to do about?  Having a job that sucks the life out of you is very hard on you and drains you of all your energy.  So much so, that you will not have enough left for yourself or your family at the end of the day when you go home for the day.  Struggling with even exercising?  Yeah, we have all been there.  What are you going to do about though?

I challenge you to get off that recliner, put your phone down and take a walk to clear your head.  What do you really want to do with the rest of your life and your career.  Stop pining for that piece of land, winning the lottery, or just being retired…cuz you still have so much yet to do.  I know it and you know it.  It is not time for you to give up on life, because you got over stressed and didn’t have a plan.  Now is the time to start planning so that you will know you have it…look around you at those successful career folks that got their retirement early.  How did they get there?  Look at all they have…now what is your plan damn it?

You can’t wait to leave work, you dread going in every day…so what are you waiting for?  You don’t really have to recreate who you are, you have to pull from within you what you really are and make the plan to get there.  Now go do it!  Yes you!  Get off that couch and start researching what it will take to get that piece of land, pay off your bills, and set those damn priorities.  You will need at least 6 big ones to get you started.  You will need to focus on all 6, but the top three must be those directly related to your next 12 months, then we will talk about the 1 year and 5 year goal.

You have what it takes, you are smart, and you can do this!  Go! Go! Now really I mean Go and get it done!  I will be here waiting to hear what you did today about it.  Drop me a comment if this was helpful.  Reach out to me if you want some advice.  Message me if you really need some help and want me to push you to get it done!
