“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better, it’s not.” Once-Ler from the Lorax.
Many times we wait until it feels like we are down to the very last seed in our professional lives before we are motivated to change. And by then it may be too late. Take control early in your career and plant the seeds of thoughtful and intentional transitions.
Since the movie The Lorax was released, I’ve been talking with clients about lessons from Dr. Suess to help them address career indecision and confusion to craft a life a meaning, significance and service. We discuss the process of career and life discernment, professional identity, and action planning.
Don’t wait until you are truly out-of-equilibrium with your values and desires to make transitions.
