Do you feel stuck and frustrated trying to come up with ideas for a career change or what path to take? Don’t despair – by approaching things from a different direction, there are ways to find the work you love, that’s an expression of who you are.
Think of the impact
Put the idea of a career aside for a moment and, looking at the world around you, what impact or difference would you like to make?
What’s at the core?
Think about the things you’re drawn to. However disconnected they may seem, what do they have in common? What is at the core of those things?
