“A personal journal is an ideal environment in which to become. It is a perfect place for you to think, feel, discover, expand, remember, and dream.” ~Brad Wilcox
Often the simplest tools and actions are the most effective.
It is certainly true when you are confused about your career path and trying to get clarity. In fact, many times we are struggling in “analysis paralysis” because we overcomplicate things.
A journal can help you break through to what’s most important, see a simplified view of your life, and get the clarity and confidence you need to take action.
Many clients come to me with a whole bunch of options of where they could take their career – they have many skills and interests that could be applicable across industries and functions, but they don’t know where to go next! The problem is that rather than taking steps to move in the right direction, the uncertainty often locks them up from making progress.
So in almost every case, I ask them to write. We move through some focused activities like in my Career Clarity Checklist, but it’s also helpful to free write in a journal.
What comes to mind? What inspires you? What are you truly afraid of? What do you want life to look like in the future? What things are most important to you in a career?
These and similar questions will help you uncover insights you have been searching for.
Get out of your head and write. Get clarity in your career. See what you discover. Then take action!
