Here’s a great question to ask yourself.
Particularly as we are pausing.
At some point.
You’ll be going back to work.
Do or Keep?
That job you’re going back to.
When you really think about it.
When you are back there.
Will you be spending most of your time trying your absolute best to do your job?
As well as you can.
Or will you be you spending most of your time trying your absolute best to keep your job?
If it’s the first one only, you may very well be in the right place.
If it’s the second one only.
You may very well be in the wrong one.
The Covid-19 situation shifts the significance of the question quite a bit.
Because so many people will be prioritising keeping their jobs in the short term.
But I’d maintain that.
(And this is hard).
If you project forward to what you see as your and our best chance of normality.
Or 18 months ahead.
And you predict that you’d still be spending all your time trying your absolute best to keep your job.
Then as soon you can muster the strength.
(That’s up to you).
And craft the opportunity.
(That’s up to you also).
And do something else.
