It's September and you're asking, 'What can I do with what I’ve already got?' Don’t re-invent yourself. Redeploy!
Come September many people consider career and life changes. But it’s scary to feel you have to “re-invent” yourself. You don’t! You already have strengths and demonstrated interests that you can redeploy into a better or more satisfying career. Wouldn’t it be so much of a relief to identify great new career possibilities building on what you’ve already got? Like the musical director who redeploys his strengths in music knowledge and performance into a new role teaching music. Like the make-up artist who redeploys her strengths of communicating with challenging clients, and making faces look great, into her new role as funeral director. Watch this 1-minute YouTube video I made while cycling on a railroad line which was redeployed as the Trans-Canada trail! What’s your story or someone else’s example of redeploying?
