There comes a time in everyone’s life when it’s time to take stock. That’s because goals that have been achieved are no longer motivators to continue doing what we are doing; be it the top job, the big house, the new car or launching the next new product.
To determine if “it’s time” for you to take stock, check-in and see if
you relate to any of these feeling statements.
- you’re having nagging doubts about your company, your product, your position, or your performance while at the same time feeling trapped by your title, the money and the benefits.
- you’re realizing that the never-ending accomplishment of goals is no longer leaving you feeling satisfied …and you can’t seem to identify the deep meaning of your work.
- you’re not the person you want to be. You’ve made so many concessions to fit into your corporate culture, surrendering to endless let downs and frustrations, that you no longer recognize yourself.
- you’ve been thinking about how short life really is and taking stock of your accomplishments against your dreams.
- you’ve been through a major life change such as getting married, divorced, sending children off to university, retiring or a major trauma such as dealing with cancer or the death of a family member, friend or co-worker and are considering what to do next.
