It’s your gut reaction.
When you become dissatisfied with where you are you immediately begin to look elsewhere to see what’s “out there.” The trouble is, you don’t have anything to base your decisions on. You become like a ship with no rudder, tossed about by every opportunity without having anything to anchor your instincts. The result is that you might make sweeping generalizations about jobs or industries, over-emphasize one persons opinion or an article you “once read,” or simply go with your gut and hope it works out.
There’s a better way.
Start with what you do know — you.
Stop trying to analyze the components of the options and start by clarifying you.
Once you get clear about who you are you can make clearer decisions about where you might fit. This self-knowledge becomes a compass pointing you to true north and leading you to a more authentic career.
The yogi Sadhguru said this: “Few people do something with their life befitting of their stature.” First, identify your “stature.” Then, find where it fits.
