in reflection

Earlier this week I took some time to reflect on our current climate and what I wanted to create as a result.


I'm curious . . . during this exceptional time in our country/world . . .


Have you reflected on the things that matter most to you?

Your purpose in the world?


Your life and how you want to live/lead it?  


What you truly want to create after we make our way through this exceptional time?



Something I say time and time again which could be considered controversial especially with what’s happening in our country/world right now is:

“Your 9-5 provides you with a false sense of stability"


You CAN get fired from a 9-5 job BUT no one but yourself can fire you from your purpose. You CAN be let go from a 9-5 job BUT no one but yourself can let you go from your purpose. You CAN be demoted at a 9-5 job BUT no one but yourself can demote you from your purpose.


Now, let me be crystal clear – I am in no way shape or form saying that there is anything wrong with a 9-5 job.  There are people who fit nicely working a 9-5 who gel and click with their jobs.  Then, there are those of us who have always struggled with 9-5 jobs.

A Non-Nine-to-Fiver™ knows in his/her heart that the 9-5 just doesn’t gel.


And Living The Non-Nine-to-Five™ Way comes with:

GREAT RESPONSIBILITY

GREAT FORTITUDE

GREAT RESILIENCE


So let's be clear that this is NOT an easy way out from a 9-5 job.


If you KNOW deep in your heart that the 9-5 no longer gels or clicks for you especially during this unprecedented time isn’t it time you reflected on where you want your life to go from here?


In Reflection,

Jen
