The last blog article was a little bit negative. I don't like to be negative so let's talk about something positive. Your career is completely in your control. If you want to work at something you have the power to change something. If you want to change something in your life you can just go out and do it. The only ingredient you need is time. It can be hard especially if you have a full time job and possibly other people to support.
This article sums up how you can change your life. It is a little outdated and for musicians but the theme is still true.
So what do you need to do in order to change your life. First of all asses what needs changing. Then assess and action plan. Stick to that action plan. Eventually your new life will slowly come to be.
The keyword is slowly. There is a saying in business: "Over night successes take 10 years to happen". If you quit your job on Friday don't expect money on Monday. For me part time work was always the answer you could work two jobs. One is your dream job and the other is your day job. Always make sure that your commute time is as short as possible. Walking distance is best but you want your commute to be no more than 30 minutes. Preferably 15 minutes is the best. Even if you have to pay more it's worth it. When you want to change your life you need time more than anything. Remember when you start a business you want to spend a little money as possible. For me it was roughly 3k a year and most of that was going to computer equipment and licenses.
If you want to change you life start today. It's as simple as that.
