Play with Strategy

Perhaps you're contemplating a major move, as Gary did. Maybe you, like Robin need a long break, or perhaps you're restructuring your life after adversity, like J.J. You could also be like Melissa, Penny, Betty, or Ken—someone who wants to stay where he or she is but not stagnate. Like Ralph, you could be a busy parent who just wants to make the most of your current position or life situation and your chance to excel. Making a move doesn't always mean a change of career or locale. Many moves are internal strategies that propel you forward. For Robin, it was acknowledging that she needed a full year away, for Gary it was needing client trust, and for J.J. it was accepting his condition while atop a mountain. In every case, the inspiration to change began internally.

If you're like most people, you value the rewards of personal growth and living a fulfilling life. To reap those rewards, you don't want to flounder too long with trials and errors. Your best plan is to blend creative inspiration with solid guidance and strategy. Think about the strategies you've used in the past—the times you've been a major player in a change on the job or in your personal life. What was the change? What was your role? What problems did you encounter? Consider the times in your life when you were caught between the status quo and change. What did you do and why? Did you have a plan? Did you listen to that inner positive voice or the negative one? Did you think calmly through the change?
