About 20% of the work that I do is with executives who are at a career crossroads, asking questions about staying or going. Or, if they know it’s time to go, to where, exactly? To what? If they’re staying, will it be in the same game or embarking on something altogether new and different.
These can be daunting questions. Big questions. So, as they seek answers, I suggest the following:
- What do you want? Where are you pulled? Translation: what are you truly passionate about? (If you don’t know, that’s more common than you think, and there are ways to discover it.)
- What are the financial considerations of your situation, short and long term?
- And, if you have a family, or others you’re responsible to, what are their preferences and needs?
I also suggest that however uncertain the terrain, however overwhelming the possibilities, asking questions is the only way to chart a course.
