I was talking career choices the other day with a colleague whom I’ve known for 22 years. He has worked for the same company for the past 25 years. My job history has been more fluid – the past 22 years have seen me in a combination of corporate gigs and self-employment.
My friend said to me, “It takes courage to make those changes, Jennifer.”
Each change has definitely required a leap of faith. And some of us are more “fling ourselves off the dock” type people, while others are more of a “let the adventuresome person go first” folks.
Reflection question: do you see your career changes as being courageous? How else would you describe the choices you’ve made as it relates to your career?
