My clients come to me because they want to find passion in their career. But often that career focus expands to a bigger picture. Why? Because as much as we might like to think so, our lives don't unfold in disconnected silos. What is happening in one part impacts the others.
What is happening in our work life will impact what is happening in our relationships. What is happening with our health will impact our work life. It's all interconnected.
One thing I often look at with my clients is, "OK, if I can't make a career change right now, how can I make life better?" Rather than sitting miserably waiting for life to be perfect later, it's about taking a proactive approach to improving life so they have more energy to put into creating the future they want.
I ran across this article that offers ten ideas for ways to improve your life, right now. Lots of readily implementable ideas. Read the article for the full picture, but in a nutshell the ideas are:
1.) Improve Your Attitude
2.) Smell the Roses
3.) Help Somebody
4.) Get More Restful Sleep
5.) Improve Your Health
6.) Get Your Finances Under Control
7.) Set Goals for Yourself
8.) Learn Something New
9.) Get Organized
10.) Eliminate A Bad Habit
Regardless of where you are in life, there's always room to refine and improve it. I encourage you to go through these ideas, find one that resonates with you, and find a way to apply it.
