I have a bad habit of starting, stopping and starting back up again - especially when it comes to my passions. Feel the same way? Here’s some quick advice on making sure your dreams done wither away on your back burner.
In the fall of 2016, I took a leap. I was unhappy with my current job, I wanted more out of my leadership and I felt I needed to take my career trajectory into my own hands. I joined a leadership group at work and on one of our first days of training, we were instructed to write letters to our future selves, outlining our current fears and insecurities and capture our feelings and hopes for the year ahead. After our year was over, we had a chance to read them again and reflect on how different our lives had become. In this post, I’m sharing the letter I wrote for all of you who feel like you too need more.
