Have you ever wondered what the right time is to pursue different work?

Sometimes it's painfully clear! (we work with people every day that have some serious disdain for their jobs)

But what if it's not as obvious? What if you actually like your job and just aren't sure if you should be pursuing something more meaningful... or what if you have multiple opportunities but aren't sure how to measure which one would be better for you.?

This is exactly the question that we just faced just recently when setting out the goals for the rest of this year and into next year!

How do you know when it's time to move on to something else?

This is hard, even for us (and it's kind of what we do here at Happen to Your Career.)

In this episode You learn

  • When it's past time for you to leave your job or your business
  • How to know what the warning signs are
  • What to actually do about it!

Do finances come first or does your career? Deacon Hayes of wellkeptwallet.com helps provide the answer to this question. 

When I first met Deacon, it was apparent that he has it together, I mean the guy paid off $52,000 worth of debt in just 18 months! He and his wife made the decision and committed to making it happen!

After he saw the power of being intentional with his finances he realized that many people that were having financial troubles were also in careers that they didn't enjoy (wierd I know!) so he set out to create his own podcast to help understand and move to work they love (does this sound familiar?)

In this episode Deacon helps us understand the impacts of debt on your career AND what to do about it.

Techniques to Better Understand What You want in Your Career

This week Scott and Mark talk about determining what you want in your career.  They discuss several techniques you can use on your own to understand better what you want in your career — be warned, it’s not always what you think it should be!

What You Want

Often when people think of what they want, they think of it in terms of what they don’t want. In order to truly know what you want, you need to list what you don’t want, then use that as a starting point for what you do want. Follow this 3-Step Process to discover what you truly want:

mark sieverkropp discusses how to chased down your dreams and tackle them through projects. He steps out the ways to go about it and takes people through the book that just released on Amazon.com Feb 3. for more go to http://happentoyourcareer.com/projectsuccess/ 

Have you ever uttered any of these phrases? What if we told you that they were all lies??

I’m not where I thought I’d be at this point in my life.  I thought I’d be farther along.  I thought I’d have a better job, a nicer house.  I’d be respected in my field…and now I’m not working in the field I thought I would be!”

“I’m just too busy to chase my dreams…there’s no way that I could ever start doing what I really want to do, I have too many responsibilities, too many bills.”

Even if I knew where to start, I couldn’t possibly chase after my dreams–it wouldn’t be responsible!  My spouse and children are counting on me!  It’s just not possible to do what I love to do–no one ever really gets to do what they love doing.”

“My life’s pretty good.  I should just be grateful for all that I have!  At least I have a job! It’s selfish and foolish to think that I could ever actually achieve those dreams I had when I was younger…

 
 
 
 

Project: Success helps you reconnect with your dreams.

  • Reconnect with your passions and dreams and learn the questions to ask yourself to narrow down what you really want to be doing.
  • Learn to recognize, confront and overcome the mental roadblocks that we all face when chasing our dreams and goals.
  • Take control of your personal development and leverage your experiences to get promotions, secure a new job and transition into work the work you were born to do.

Entrepreneur On Fire Podcast with John Lee Dumas 

 

"Until one has committed, there is hesitancy.  The chance to draw back.  Always ineffectiveness.  Concerning all acts of initiative, and creation there is one elementary truth.  The ignorance of which kills countless ideas, and splendid plans.  That the moment that one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.  All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.  A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manor of unforseen incidents and meetings and material substances, which no one could have drempt would have come your way.  Whatever you can do or dream you can begin it.  Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
