Move Your Career Forward from Home: Never Waste a Crisis

Never Waste a Crisis

Step One: Are you following your passion?

I was talking to Bill (and many other clients) as he worked from home during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

“Right now, you are working from home. One of the upsides of this situation is the ability to think outside the politics and noise of the office. Have you asked yourself, ‘Where do I see myself in 5 years’?”

Now during this crisis is the time to revisit your personal, professional mission (or calling, drive, passion, vision, dream, whatever you want to call it).

Mark Cuban (Courtesy CNBC)

No one is worried about your career except you. Years ago, companies used to have career paths, but those career paths don’t seem to operate anymore. The decision-maker for your career path is you. And if you’re the one making decisions around your career, the 5-year question is the starting point for reconsidering how to move your career forward. 

So, ask yourself the question, ‘Where do I want to be in five years?’ Only the question is not about where do you want to see yourself in terms of the company hierarchy, but where do you want your career to be.

Things to Consider

Career Goals:

Are my career goals still valid? Obtainable? Relevant?

Will my career goals still be valid or relevant 5 to 10 years from now?

What have I not accomplished that I still want to accomplish?

Personal Goals:

Have my personal goals changed?

What have I not accomplished that I still want to accomplish?

Do my personal and professional goals still align?

What needs to change?

Retirement: If you are within 15 years of retirement, there are some questions you want to ask yourself:

When am I aiming to retire?

What do I want my retirement to look like?

  • Do I want to golf? Travel? Become an artist? Volunteer? Work in another field? Follow a dream? 
  • Where do I want to live?

Re-Alignment

How do you bring it all together to create a greater vision for your career and life? What is your higher goal as you move forward? What does this look like in terms of ‘where do I see myself in 5 years? 10 years?’

In summary, taking this time now while you are at home allows you to reassess your personal needs that seem to be set aside in the daily trials of life. These questions are not always easy to just answered when asked.  Take some time to see what questions you can ask and next week-Never Waste a Crisis
