Since it is almost back to school time, I thought I’d begin with a little physics lesson. Ok, not a physics lesson exactly – but at least a good analogy which relates physics to your career path.
Newton’s first law of motion states that “an object at rest tends to remain at rest, while an object in motion tends to stay in motion.”
Well interestingly, careers can be a lot like that too. When we’ve got lots of energy and momentum, the road to success feels tangible. We are moving up in the world. We are gaining new skills. In short, we are improving ourselves and making a contribution to our company.
But what if your career feels more like “an object at rest”? You know, stuck in a rut with little or no room for advancement. Or maybe you feel like your present job just doesn’t fit you the way it used to.
The good news is that there is a second part to Newton’s law.
An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion unless it is compelled to change by forces impressed upon it.
You can change your career. Or you can start moving forward again in the career that you already have. You can get out of that rut. You just need the right strategies (forces) to move it along.
I hope you find the following resources helpful in getting your career back in motion!
