BLUFThis article argues that to meet your professional goals, there’s a season to advance your career, and just like the seasons in nature, you may continue to cycle through various seasons throughout your working life.
This article by Amy Blaschka, writing for Forbes, identifies three reasons why you should think of your working life in terms of ‘seasons’:
- A new season signals change—this offers an opportunity for growth. Sometimes, external forces demand it and sometimes it’s internal, i.e. driven by a feeling that something’s missing or a desire to challenge yourself.
- It lets you focus and align your talents with the current climate. Like their natural counterparts, career seasons are time-specific and aligned with what’s happening in the environment.
- It helps you learn more about yourself. Having multiple career seasons allows you to try new things and learn about yourself in the process.
