What if the moments in our lives that feel the most awkward are actually the most valuable? That’s the question that Melissa Dahl poses in her new book Cringeworthy, a Theory of Awkwardness. It’s also something that I’ve been pondering for about 10 years now. Particularly the area of having awkward and difficult conversations and how they impact your life.

It’s super confusing how to become a consultant. There’s not a clear path at all, but it’s something that’s very desirable to do if you are looking for flexibility, autonomy, high pay, and have a desire to add immense value to organizations.

Lisa Schulter had been interested in becoming a consultant for several years but never really understood how to make that happen.

She had been in Non-Profit Healthcare Management for many years and was really, really good at it. She even enjoyed the work quite a bit at first but as her values changed and what she wanted from her career changed along with it she realized that after working in 3 other employee roles in the space, she really didn’t want to add a 4th to her resume.

When we met her and started working with her to identify her ideal career, she had been a listener to the podcast and she knew that she was an introvert looking for a role that allowed her to use her knowledge and experience from the non-profit healthcare space, but also to have more reflective time and thinking time (even recharge time) that many introverts also need.

According to our guest (and coiner of the term), Emilie Wapnick, a multipotentialite is a person that doesn’t have “one true calling the way that specialists do.”

Emilie describes multipods as people with many paths that pursue all of them, either sequentially or simultaneously (or both).

A person with Multipotentiality “thrives on learning, exploring, and mastering new skills.” As innovators and problem solvers, the multi-passionate have the need to discover anything and everything to satisfy their curiosity.

Sure. Feeling safe and at ease is great and all, but what goals have you ever achieved by staying in your comfort zone??

 

We’re willing to bet on not many at all.

 

Nobody ever achieves much by staying in their comfort zone.

 

WHY?

 

Well, achieving goals requires you to aim for something just a little bitout of your reach.

 

Having a goal makes you look forward to something attainable that may not be in your comfort zone (at the moment).

 

Then the question of how to get out of your comfort zone comes up.

 

When it comes to career change, more likely than not you’ll be faced with the choice to break out of your comfort zone to progress down a new path that may be full of unknowns.

Starting the career search process can be intimidating, especially since the first thing any job search website asks for is WHAT? Like you’re supposed to know what job title you want in the first place?

When you don’t know what career path you want to take, the process is not only hard to get started, it can be paralyzing when you don’t have all of the answers. Just thinking about a career change causes stress, anxiety, frustration, and fear to rise inside many people because the majority feel stuck and unsure of what to do first.

But, there’s a way to get unstuck.

You have to be willing to change your mindset and approach your career change differently than you have before.

If you’re willing to do that, all you need now it to make the time and energy to get you through the journey.

Below, we’ve outlined tips from Kathryn Minshew, CEO and Co-Founder of The Muse, a career discovery platform that “puts the human at the center” and helps over 50+ million people a year in their career search.

Now, pull out a notebook and let’s get you started down the right path to get you unstuck and find your new career path.
