Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed because of the weight of your daily responsibilities? Do you feel like you are under a lot of stress?
Are you feeling the pressure of managing multiple, often conflicting priorities and tight deadlines?
Stress is like unrelieved pressure which burdens or strains your relationships, health and state of mind and can ultimately break or kill you!
On the other hand stress can also be a positive sign that you are stretching yourself beyond your comfort zone.
The Procrastination Problem
As a career coach, one of the biggest hurdles I have to overcome when working with my clients is procrastination. An example is a client that I will call Ryan. Ryan acknowledges that even though he has a degree in Information Systems, he is stuck in a dead end job in Help Desk Support.
Ryan would love a great new job as a computer programmer. I have worked with him to create a plan of action that includes updating his skill set while simultaneously putting his resume out there to see if a potential employer will nibble on it.
