People who are ready to make the jump to a more satisfying career do one thing consistently:
They ask questions. Lots of them. To everyone they can.
They have this insatiable desire to learn about other peoples’ jobs:
how they got there, what they do, and why they do it.
Like a researcher, they collect data. They gather all of this information to begin to formulate their launch plan. This info helps them sort through the clutter of 10 million potential careers and find the one that fits them.
They are seeking information to find the job that hits them in the face and screams “this is YOU.”
They also get there more quickly than other career dreamers because they are opening their minds to possibilities and expanding their paradigm of what actually exists “out there.”
If you’re asking these questions — if you’ve reached the point that you behave like an investigative journalist with your local grocer — you are in a really, really good place.
It’s also a sign that you’re likely ready to take the leap and start actually trying some of these jobs out. Worst case scenario you fall flat and try again. Best case scenario one of them fits.
As long as the job generates some kind of income to provide for the necessities of life, what do you really have to lose?
