Many of the people that we have worked with here at HTYC tend to go through several career changes on their own. They try many of the traditional job search methods, and they don’t see lasting results. Usually, they start excited about their new role, but then, at some point, start realizing that something is off. Sometimes the role or company doesn’t match your values. Sometimes the role doesn’t match your strengths.

Laura Parker used to work for a global law firm for 12 years, and made a change to this technology company 2 years ago. It didn’t take long for her to realize that she needed to make another change, and that’s where she found this podcast. But I’m getting ahead of her story. We need to jump back and see why she needed to leave the law firm in the first place?

How can you remove distraction?

Distraction from achieving what’s most important to you?

Distraction that takes you away from who you want to be spending your time with?

Who better to answer this question than the person who wrote "Indistractable: How to control your attention and choose your life." I read it and loved it so much that I bought it for my entire team for Christmas. 

Here to teach us the difference between traction and distraction is author Nir Eyal.

As humans, we have a tendency to compare ourselves to each other. This is a bad idea, especially when it comes to measuring success. My measure of success may not be the same as yours. And that’s OK.

That’s because success looks different for everyone.

After working with thousands of people, we’ve observed that when you worry about other people’s opinions (even if it’s family or friends), it could negatively impact your potential success.

Why does the term “live authentically” seem like it’s been popping up everywhere these days?

In fact, if you just Google it,  only 2.47 Million results appear ( if you can’t tell, I’m dripping with sarcasm).

But, why do we all have this urge to “live an authentic life” in the first place?

Why is it so damn hard to be our true selves at all times?

When was the last time you’ve been challenged (in a good way) in your career? Some people will say very recently while others may say they haven’t been challenged since graduating college.

The result? The feeling of “dying inside”. As if all you do everyday is go to work to do the same thing over and over without direction, excitement or hope of career growth.

That’s the same emptiness that Eric, a management consultant, felt and he was so determined on finding career happiness that he spent an entire year in his career search.

In this HTYC episode, Scott Anthony Barlow, will explore the ups and downs of Eric’s career change journey in his search for an ideal role that challenged him.

You’ve been ignoring that feeling in your gut for a while. Maybe it’s been about your job, or how you’re raising your kids, or even concerned about your relationships. But it’s time to start paying attention to it.

Why? 

Your intuition is great at letting you know when things are off. But it’s not great at helping you understand why it’s off. 

When Alissa Penney decided to stop ignoring those feelings, she was able to completely change her career (and even start her own consulting business).

Every career change includes reaching out to key decision makers so you stand out among the sea of applicants. There are some simple, yet overlooked, strategies that are very effective at not just receiving a response, but getting an out-of-this-world response.
