When we speak of career change
we don’t mean changing jobs
or sectors or a new job title.
We don’t mean getting promotion,
going back to college or
having flexible work arrangements.
We don’t mean working from home,
working for yourself
or starting a business.
What we mean is
changing the career model
and becoming fully ourselves.
We can step out of the career box
that we are put in, for this is only
one construct for guiding our lives.
There are many alternatives such as
time, purpose, age, self-knowledge, family,
personal situation, wish list, relationships,
spiritually, love, service or trust.
The career model is not our only choice.
We can all have a frame of reference
for our lives that works for us.
