It can feel good to have options, but it's typically fear that sets us back from choosing an option, or a direction. When we're making a pivot or looking at our career long-term, we have to identify what it is we love to do, and balance that with our ideal role. Finding a new direction doesn't have to be difficult, but it has to be well-thought-out. This episode will help you uncover that for yourself, and your future.

Having lots of options feels positive, but behind that thought could be fear, could be innefficiency. If you're not taking action against something, then it's good look closer at it. [If] the answer you give yourself about your career direction is, "I don't know," [...] then it's a lie! It's choosing not to decide. Even if you do pursue it and figure out it's not right for you, it's alright. It's alright to change our minds!

In this episode, you'll discover the reasons why people end up directionless, and the steps you must take to identify your path and stay on it. In addition, I give you the questions to ask yourself that help find the thing you love best about your position. We can use these answers to see our direction.
