Stating the obvious… 2020 will go down as a truly unforgettable year, and all for the wrong reasons. BUT…. Restrictions, lockdowns and working remotely may actually have been a circuit breaker for many caught in a career hamster wheel, working increasingly under more pressure and never getting anywhere. WHAT IF… 2020 actually turns out to be the moment that we collectively paused, took the time to evaluate our goals and most importantly, our priorities?
As we move into “covid normal” life, many of us are hitting the pause button on career progression. True, the trend towards work /life balance has been a common mantra over the last couple of years, but are we seeing something more profound – a career tree change?
Sea and tree changes have been popular in recent years, with frazzled city dwellers opting to embrace a gentler form of life in regional and rural areas. Why not have the same approach to your career? A career tree change does not have to be radical, throwing away years of building a career; instead, it could be a subtle shift away from career progression to a broadening of that career. Taking on a new challenge with the same, or possibly less responsibilities may just be the key to finally achieving that illusive work/life balance.
