Pay off mortgage. Done. Now what?
The ‘after’ plan wasn’t key in my thoughts, but now I’m here.
Early on, I thought I’d leave my job, travel, buy a new car etc etc.
In reality it was a confusing time.
But I had 2 key thoughts.
A careers advisor told me that we all have ‘superstrengths’ : things that we do better, faster and more easily than others. This is the vicinity we should be in: our career focus. Forget trying to work on weaknesses. Work with your strengths.
On a walk by the Embankment I came across a war memorial. At the foot it said, “The boldest moves are the safest”. Counterintuitive, because aren’t bold moves risky? But I like it.
So what should I do?
Superstrengths: writing, creative, entrepreneur.
Bold move: leave my job and start again.
…and that’s what I did.
