Why getting a 'better' job won't solve your problems.

Why getting a 'better' job won't solve your problems. Many people I meet are unhappy with their current jobs. They ask me, "Adrian, How do I find a 'better' job?" I tell them finding a job is only a temporary solution. "What does 'BETTER' look like, and would you know it even if it hits you on the head?" Because you need to understand what you really want in a job... And don't want. What you enjoy and what you dislike. If a 'better' offer comes along at 50% more salary but with 2x the stuff you dislike, you'll probably quit in 6 mths after the novelty of more money goes away. So how? 1. You need to have Clarity on what you want. Is it more time, more love, more money? ( Sze-Yen) 2. What's your Career Strategy? Is it Accelerate, Cruise, Downshift, Deepen, Explore, or Pause? 3. Is such a job even out there? Does it even exist? If not, can it be created? Don't just accept the job blindly... You need to be strategic in every Career Move you make...thay means being Rational, Deliberate, and Well thought-out. If you don't know how, just PM me and we'll walk you through...
