What can you say YES to today?

Stuart Young, London, UK

Hiya,

Take the opportunity today to say YES to something you would normally say No to.

Is this a tricky one? Hmm, not sure. I think some of you might find this difficult depending on what the thing is and how challenging it might be.

To others it might be a simple choice of having a cup of coffee after your lunch when you normally don’t. Either way, try and say YES – see what happens.

Maybe there’s something you’re asked to do at work that you’d normally refuse because it’s not your job – today, have a go. Say “Yes, sure, I’ll do it.” See what happens with the rest of your day. Does it get better, worse, stay the same?

How to Change Jobs (Step 2)

Hiya,

So, following on in this series of posts about getting out of a job that you feel trapped in, bullied, overworked, frustrated, used, or in any number of ways are just down right tired of – here’s what to do with your Opportunities List.

If you haven’t read the last 2 posts How to Change Jobs and Obstacles = Opportunities then take a quick look at them as this post will make a lot more sense if you do.

OK, presuming you’ve made your list and you have at least 30 things on there that you could do as well as your present job. Including things such as hobbies, activities that you have a skill in, other things that you just love doing, even if at the moment you don’t think you could make much, or even any money at.

The idea is that writing all these ideas down acts as a brain dump. You get rid of all the chatter and put it on paper – filed out of the way, so that your subconscious can offer forwards other options that you wouldn’t ordinarily think of.

When I first did this exercise after experiencing my catalyst, item number 27 was: start my own print consultancy business. That’s right, the most obvious thing to do for me – which was staring me in the face, which had been suggested many times by colleagues and friends, was simply not on my initial radar. It might seem crazy but we become so programmed by our education system, our family, friends, colleagues etc. that we’re good at something so we should just keep doing that, that when we decide we don’t want to do that anymore, we forget that we can still do it – but for ourselves instead. What we really might be thinking is: I don’t want to do this for someone else anymore.

So, on to prioritising your opportunities – go through your list and put the letter ‘A‘ next to just 10 of those things that you’d really like doing, the ones you’d love. The ones that you would jump excitedly out of bed for in the morning.

Then go back through the list and mark the letter ‘B‘ next to the next 10 things that you could do, if push came to shove,  – even if only on a part time basis.

Then mark the letter ‘C‘ next to all the remaining things that you really don’t want to do, you might be good at them, but you just don’t want to do them.

Now copy just the letter ‘A’s onto a separate sheet of paper.

In my own ‘A‘ list I had painting, writing, starting my own business based on my job, investing in property and teaching amongst other things. Once I had my ‘A‘ list I felt a surge of determination, but I knew I still needed even more focus.

In my next post How to Change Jobs (Step 3) I’ll explain what I did next.

Stay tuned

How I Identified I Was in the Wrong JOB!

Hiya,

A couple of days ago in my ‘Comfort & Riches Parable‘ post I mentioned I’d share with you how I identified that I was in the wrong job and how I got out.

Here you go…

About 10 years ago I decided that working for someone else was not making me happy, not securing my future, not fulfilling me, not helping me contribute in a wider way and not helping me follow my passions.

I had reached an impasse.

I realised something had to change, and I was the one that had to change it. You can read more about it in the My Story section on this blog.

So here were some of the warning signs that lead me to this radical change:

#1 I found that I was short tempered a lot of the time

#2 I had no clarity about my future

#3 I felt frustrated most of the time with no clear understanding of why

#4 I felt stuck, and didn’t know which way to turn

#5 I dreaded going in to work every day and even had daily anxiety pains in my chest

#6 Even though I’m not a natural worrier I found myself having worrying thoughts about what my life meant, if I would ever achieve the goals I had as a kid, and whether I was going to have an enjoyable retirement

#7 I felt like a huge bundle of potential tied in a knot, unable to undo it all

#8 I had no savings, no investments and no obvious prospects to progress.

If you can relate to any or ALL of them, I’m going to guess that you are not in the right job either. For me, I decided that working for myself was the way forward.

So, what should you do?

In my next post I’ll explore ways you can determine if there’s still a chance you can fall back in love with your job or, whether you have to get out to get on.

Until then, enjoy, breathe, relax and know there’s a light at the end of this tunnel.

Stu
