How to reinvent your work and career
Do any of these descriptions fit your current situation, or that of someone you know? You want to ramp up your career. Or, maybe you’re feeling a bit jaded, looking for a chance shift roles, to use more of your strengths and interests. Maybe you want to develop a portfolio career. Or it could be you want to reconfigure your life, so that it includes more flexibility and a different kind of balance. Maybe you’ve just lost a job, so need to regroup and figure out ‘where to next’?
Longer lives and longer careers are occurring in a rapidly changing economic landscape, where old realities are giving way to quite different conditions and pressures. We’re now well into the knowledge economy, the digital age, the world of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity), of which COVID-19 is now a big part.
All this means that most of us will need to reinvent ourselves several times, with some of us doing so many times. Indeed, there is only a small chance of you never needing to redesign your life!
Periods of transition are often characterised by the ending of something. You finally face the fact that you aren’t happy at work. Your job no longer engages you. Or you lose it. Whatever the catalyst, you know your life as you’ve been living it doesn’t satisfy you. You can’t go back to how you felt before. For a while, you may even feel poised between the old and the new, between what’s finished and what isn’t yet real. So, you’ll need to make changes, some quite large. In this endeavour, be focussed, be prepared and, above all, be persistent!
