Chances are at some point your career will come to a crossroad. Career crossroads can present both opportunities and obstacles. Some approach this stop in their career journey with confidence, however, most approach it with confusion and fear. Decisions determine our directions and our directions determine our destinations.
To be confident in our decisions takes more than just being aware of where we have been and acknowledging where we want to go next. The action steps we take are critical to accomplishment. We want any motion we put forth to create movement.
The first action step many are tempted to take at a career crossroad is to act on our own conclusions. Today, we have access to more direction-finding apps and GPS capabilities through our digital devices than ever before. Welcome Centers throughout states provide travelers free maps to help guide them to their destination. Even with all the technology just a click away, it’s easy to succumb to the tendency to try to get where we want to go yet, have never been, trying to do it on our own.
When you reach a career crossroad, resist the temptations to act alone. Take advantage of the resources and help available to you to help reach the destination of career success. Again, decisions determine our directions and our directions determine our destinations.~Tim
