Feeling like you should jump jobs? Don’t wait to find your dream job before leaping. Sometimes the way is revealed by simply acting. Doing something different.
A job description may not seem like a dream job but that might be because it’s missing you. You are the thing that makes it a dream job because humans are dynamic and give life to otherwise generic job descriptions.
The goal in searching for your next gig shouldn’t be to find the perfect fit. It should be to find something that aligns enough with your values, strengths, and ideal environment to guarantee a base level of satisfaction.
Even then, you’ll never 100% KNOW this is the right move. There’s a reason they’re called “leaps” of faith. They take more than casual stepping or tippy-toeing. And, if you’ve done the hard work of reflection and research, it’s probably time to trust that you are the missing ingredient and just move. Leap. Take action.
“There is that ‘leap of faith,’ as the philosophers call it. It is the moment when you have gone to the edge of the light and stepped into the darkness to discover that the way is lighted ahead for just a footstep or two.” -Boyd K. Packer, LDS Apostle
