One month down, eleven to go! 2011 is moving fast. Are you filled with excitement and energy to tackle what lies ahead - or does the sense of time passing add to the extent of feelings of isolation and confusion with which you may be dealing with right now?
When the burning question is ' should I stay or do I go ' : then what's to do? Do I leave work? Do I stay?
This is a very typical question which many of our clients frequently ask themselves. First of all, quit worrying about how to handle change!!
Surveys show that it is not uncommon for people to mull over the possibility of changing aspects of their working life for up to three years before they actually do something. Feel better now?
Much of the time, of course, the issue at stake is not a fear about change but a lack of clarity about where to be headed and what to be doing. Add to that a real and understandable nervousness about the impact which change has on the routine and fabric of our lives and of those around us and inertia is often the result.
But you know, it really doesn't have to be like this! Solitary musing interspersed by bouts of frantic worry or self loathing are no good to anybody.
