With the craziness of December nearly over and many of us heading into holidays, it's the perfect time to breathe, relax, and contemplate our lives.
And with work taking up such a huge part of our lives, it's a great time to consider if we are happy and satisfied with our jobs and workplaces.
So here are a few questions to get you thinking:
What do you consider to be work-life balance?
Do you currently have work-life balance?
What do you enjoy about your current work?
What have you enjoyed about your previous jobs?
What energises you? Do you get this from work or outside work?
Do you enjoy your organisation's culture?
How do you like to spend your time? Does your work give you some of this?
Do you have a career plan at all? Do you need or want one?
It's fun to think through questions like this when you have time, so grab a pen and notebook or your laptop and take yourself away for some 'me' time.
If you decide that you are seriously considering a career change or move then I highly recommend seeing a career or life coach to help you figure out exactly what you want to do and how to make it happen. And if you do decide to make a career move, then I highly recommend seeing me to help you update your job application documentation!
Merry Christmas and enjoy the holidays (if you get one)!
