Career Reflections of the Fall Season: Pausing to Notice
Posted by Caitlin Joyce on Monday, October 1, 2012 at 11:41 AM PDT
As we transition from spring to fall, the seasons invite us take time to step back and reflect on our own sense of needed changes in our personal and professional lives. A starting point can be assessing the use of our time. Are you satisfied with how much time you spend at work; and are you really choosing the amount of time spent specific tasks within your current role? Are you comfortable with the quality of your relationships at work? Where might you want to make deliberate choices on how you spend your most valuable asset—your time—within your work context? Another helpful barometer in holistically evaluating our lives is noticing our energy. Do you leave work feeling drained, empty and depleted? Or do you leave with a sense of purpose and enthusiasm, perhaps having expended physical and mental energy in the process, but feeling rejuvenated nevertheless--a subtle difference, yet one that matters to those who want to lead lives of meaning and fulfillment. By cultivating time and space for reflective practices we are empowered to create a more conscious and intentional life.
