When we’re in a transition (a career transition or a mid-life transition) we lose the familiar definitions, roles and even our daily routine which previously defined who we are. So, the first question I hear people asking when in a transition is WHO AM I? and the second question is WHY AM I HERE? And if you are at this stage of life (mid-life – let’s just say mid-40s on up, okay?) it is more important to answer those questions NOW than at any other time in our lives.

If you’re currently in a transition we’ll be focusing on 20 tips from my book PUT YOUR SPIRIT TO WORK for the next 20 weeks and that’s almost ½ a year! Where do you want to be when you land successfully on the other side of your current transition? Think about it. Set a goal.

We all know re-inventing ourselves is an on-going process but for those of you focusing in on a specific career transition right now you will be guided through the steps one-by-one to land successfully at a new beginning. You’ll find all the exercises at my website that will provide you with personal insight, understanding about the new world of work and how to successfully navigate it.  I hope you enjoy the ride.

Thanks for recognizing that being in transition can create a feeling of being at “loose ends”. Setting a goal of where I want to be at the END of my current transition, will 1) let me recognize the unsettled feeling and be more able to go with the flow, and 2) will give me makers so I will know when I get there!

Thanks for your comment sue. I think all the various tools we both use in our businesses are designed to create greater self awareness. Being more mindful of where I am and trusting there is a process helps me when I became overwhelmed by some of the feeling states. Talk about a roller-coaster!
