Is your career dragging you down instead of inspiring you to produce your best work? Reflect on these three questions to give you a sense of direction, says Simon T. Bailey.
Author and renowned motivational speaker Simon T. Bailey shares advice on how you should be approaching your career.
Is Time For A Career Change?
Should you be re-evaluating your career path? Perhaps what worked for you before no longer serves its purpose. If so, Bailey says it's time for a career audit.
"I am astounded at how many people roll out of bed every day, week, month, and year to work for a company that is subpar in its treatment of its most important asset - people. Is it time for a career audit? You may discover that your job is a liability instead of an asset."
Have You Found Your Life's Work?
He challenges you to explore the possibility that your purpose is not to work a job but a higher calling than that.
"Here’s the deal: you were never created to work a job. You were created to find your universal assignment, also known as your life’s work. A job is what you are paid to do. Releasing Your Brilliance is what you are made to do."
Are You Learning From Each Day?
Instead of going through the day on auto, Bailey encourages you to press pause for a moment and learn from each day.
"Reflect on your day yesterday: what worked, what didn't work, and what do you need to let go of? Repeat this process every morning."
