I want to check in with you about how things are going in your job.
I know you struggle with burn-out, overwhelm, and what to do next. You keep thinking things will change if you just work harder, take on more responsibility or give the changes in your company more time. Being stuck is a total drag.
These struggles have me thinking about a funeral I attended for a colleague from my corporate days. He worked hard, sometimes staying at the office on Christmas Eve, traveling internationally, sacrificing for the company and putting many things off “until retirement.” The church was simultaneously crying and laughing hysterically at the stories his children told of the things their dad was finally doing in his retirement. He was just beginning to enjoy all the things he had worked for when he died 2 years in.
When I hear you say, “I’ll wait until next year. Maybe things will get better on their own,” or “I can put up with anything until my kids are out of college,” it breaks my heart. Time is short. Your life is valuable. The time to bring back joy, balance, health, and meaning is NOW. Retirement is too far away. Even next year is too far away.
This quote makes me think of you everyday:
How you spend your days is how you spend your life. ~Annie Dilliard
You are the one with the power to make things better for yourself. Waiting for your company to make things better for you is only going to make you another year older.
If you are:
- waiting to see if things will get better on their own;
- procrastinating on making a change because you’re scared of the financial consequences;
- skeptical that things can ever be better in your job;
- wishing you had the roadmap to professional fulfillment,
