“I wanted to give you an update on my job situation and how I believe that following your Zero to Passion worksheets (not to mention all your emails, blogs, and other resources you provide), helped lead me here...
After one particularly bad day in July, I knew the time had come to make a change. I did two things: First, I put my intention out in the world. I texted and emailed some trusted friends with an SOS that I HAD to find something else and needed their help.
Secondly, I came home and started filling out the Zero to Passion worksheets again. I knew I had to get serious about my job change.
Here are some of the things I wrote down:
- Space and light
- Flexible schedule/freedom
- Time to travel
- Salary that enables my travel passion
One year from now:
Who are you with: A global company
What are you doing? Working with executive leadership to guide them to success
What’s on your desk? Very little
Where are you living? Texas or France
Money: Total current compensation
Here are the details of my new job:
-20 minute commute max
-Huge, global company
-I will run a big program, reporting to senior executives
-There is a clean desk policy I will make more money than I do now
-I can dictate my time off, and they know travel is important to me
-The office is open and light, with floor to ceiling windows everywhere
From the day I sent the SOS to my friends until the first phone call with a recruiter: 17 days.
From that call till today: 35 days.
Less than 2 months from stating my intent and framing up my wants/needs with the worksheet, I am about to start the job I wanted!” -Lisa
