This was Diane Sawyer’s theme tonight. She did a story about a former police officer who after twenty years on the force is now a stand-up comedian. So if you haven’t heard me say this before I think that the only way to survive the current economic climate is to consider doing something different from what you did in the past.
For years people were telling me that I should teach. A few years ago a life coach that I was working with said that all of her assessments told her that I should be teaching. I thought she was nuts. I was working in the field that I had been trained for and pretty much the only thing I had done as an adult. It wasn’t teaching.
So what am I doing now, teaching at several different colleges as and adjunct instructor. Guess what, I love it!
So think about what you love or are good at and see if you can find a job doing that. You don’t want to do that other thing any more anyway!!
