I have, on occasion, felt stuck in a job. It is a haunting and dismal feeling in the deepest pit of your stomach. It makes getting out of bed during the week difficult and getting through a day at work without exploding near impossible. Does this sound vaguely familiar?
I have always found that taking proactive action in my life is the key to getting UNstuck. It helps me get through my current daily grind a little bit easier. By taking action, instead of moping about your situation, you give yourself a mission, a reason to move forward and a vision of your future.
Part of what I’ve done in my life, and also the inspiration for this blog, is to find ways out of current employment situations that are unhealthy for one reason or another.
I came across this interesting video on YouTube about a "Career Makeover”. The video was created by Cisco in what appears to be a good attempt at the ultimate employer challenge: retaining good people. The video coaches an employee to follow the “3 E’s”: Education, Exposure & Experience.
Take a look at this video to see if there are ways you might be able to apply the messages to your own career in order to get yourself UNSTUCK. I would love to hear positive stories about how you got UNSTUCK.
