Here’s a piece of advice re work I often give my coaching clients:
If you’re unhappy at work, be realistic yet also aspirational. You can’t always just chuck it in and race off into the sunset. Life doesn’t work like that.
What you can do though, is get on the internet and research jobs in your preferred area. Look at the next level up, look at the next two levels up.
Download the jobs specifications. It doesn’t matter where these jobs are as you’re not actually going to apply for them…not yet anyway.
What you are going to do is map your skills and attributes against what they are asking for and note the gaps. Then you can set about making good the shortfall.
Focussing on your next job, and taking every opportunity to make yourself ‘next job ready‘, will make the present bearable. Don’t wish your life away, but get the most you can from your current position.
