What do you want to be when you grow up?
We get this question a lot when we're young. Every adult in our lives asks us this question. Then we graduate high school, go to college and must declare a Major. We spend the next four years wrestling with the question, "what do you want to be for the rest of your life?"
It might not be the right question.
A better question might be, "what do you want to do next?" Planning the next 20-30 years of your life around a decision made as a 22 year old doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. For that matter, it doesn't make much sense for a 40-50 year old either.
None of us has a magic crystal ball to see the future. Do what interests you and provides what you need to live the life you want. Sounds simple, right? Not usually.
We all tend to get a little clouded around this subject. It's hard to sort it out in our own minds and even harder to talk about it with those closest to us.
An executive coach can help. You can't find what you want until you first know what you want. Many of our clients go through this same thing, which is why we have partnered with an executive coach. Feel free to reach out if you would like to explore your possibilities.
