There are a million motivational and inspirational books out there. But one of the best I’ve found is also one of the simplest. Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss: insightful, wise, powerful, uplifting, universal, honest…and accurately reflecting the ups and downs and twists and turns in life. It’s the perfect book for anyone, but especially someone in a life/career transition who might be feeling a little frustrated or discouraged that things aren’t falling into place faster.
The final part of the book goes like this: “You’ll get mixed up of course as you already know. You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact and remember that life’s a great balancing act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98.75% guaranteed.)”
I think many of us can relate to those words of wisdom. So the next time you’re in a career transition, or even when you’re not, have Dr. Seuss nearby!
I love being a career coach, and mixing things up every now and again is a good thing. I also know for sure that life’s too short not to enjoy what we do. As such, I’m starting to write the next chapter in my career by working again with clients to help guide them in their career development! Coaching individuals who are in job transition, or are thinking about something bigger and better for themselves will be just one of my areas of focus.
This blog will be a resource hub for all things career. It will also incorporate a few of my other interests, including introversion, mindfulness, wellness, and diversity and inclusion, and how they all contribute to having an optimal professional life. I’ll be writing on this blog as much as possible, but also be sure to check out my new Instagram page for quick tips and inspiration! And stop by my LinkedIn page to learn more about my background and experience as a career coach.
Thanks, and let me know when I can help write the next chapter in your career!
