What are you doing to make your life better in 2010? Making positive, pro-active steps in our lives isn’t always easy. Career Coach John E. Long of Two Roads Resources suggests the answer lies in thinking outside the box. Breaking the patterns we’ve established in life, Long suggests, can lead to new discoveries.
Long advises shaking things up to encourage a more creative view of life. His ideas include:
- Create a “Vision Board” and post pictures, cartoons, inspirational messages, action statements, etc. that reflect attainable goals.
- Seek out materials (books, audio programs, assessments, etc.) for exploration and development.
- Take a mid-week “mental health day” and tour a museum, attend a lecture, or arrange some informational interviews.
