One Easy Step to More Career Clarity

Reading time: 2 minutes

Finding clarity in your career journey is as tricky as solving a puzzle without all the pieces. Many are struggling to even get close to that. They are unsure of which direction to take or how to kickstart their journey toward fulfilling work.

Some have so many different ideas, unable to pinpoint which one to pursue. They’re multi-passionte, but they don’t know which one would be best to focus time and energy on.

Others struggle to come up with ideas when thinking about what they want to do for work. They often say, “I don’t know what I want.” Unfortunately, many of these people don’t give themselves time or space to figure out what they really want.

The result? Getting stuck in overthinking, called analysis paralysis. They feel like they can’t move forward and keep feeling stuck.

The reason they don’t take action and feel stuck is because they’re scared. They’re afraid of making mistakes, of going down the wrong path, and wasting time and money. So, they stay stuck, too afraid to try in case they fail.

That’s why I encourage my clients to take small steps forward to test your career.
