Do you ever feel like you’re stuck on the hamster wheel when it comes to transforming your career and finding a job you love? We all experience times when we feel like we are never going to be the person who gets to have a job and career that we will truly enjoy. That can tempt us to stop taking the steps that will get results, or to give up our efforts entirely.

I had the privilege of attending a value-packed marketing conference over the weekend, where this statement was a central theme: “Ordinary things, done consistently, create extraordinary and consistent results.”—Sandra Martini

As I consider this concept, I see that it doesn’t just apply to marketing or business ownership. This concept also applies to successfully transforming your career into one you love and in which you thrive. The question I am asking myself every day is, “What can I do consistently to get the results I want?” I ask you the same question, what can you do every day to get the results you want from your career transformation?

If you are in the Career Burnout stage, which often precipitates career transformation, are you practicing consistent self care? Consider adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet, taking a walk at lunch, or leaving work on time three days a week.

If you are in the Unearth Stage, seeking to discover your unique set of strengths, skills and passions, what can you do every day, or every week, to move through this stage? Perhaps you can carry a small notebook with you, and take note of the strengths you use throughout your day to get things done. Or sit down once a week and list out your accomplishments from the week, at work or at home.

Are you in the Imagine Stage, designing the career you would love to have? Consider doing an Ideal Work Day visualization daily for one week. Or at the end of each day, make notes of the qualities you appreciate from your current job, and want to keep at your next job.

Are you in the Create Stage, actively seeking the job you will love? Schedule your job search activities in your calendar, e.g. Monday, search the job boards, Tuesday, connect on LinkedIn, Wednesday, attend a Job Club to network, Thursday, research companies, Friday, follow up on applications.

What can you do every day to get the results you want from your career transformation? Choose one action and put it on your calendar today. I invite you to share your commitment with me by posting your action on my blog below.

Client Stories

What did you need at the time you hired Lori?

I wanted to work in my industry and didn't know how to progress any further than I was. I knew I had much experience that could be put in the industry of my choice but not how to parlay that experience. I needed guidance.

What did you and Lori do together?

Many, many things. Overall, to get clear in my mind what I offered and really what I wanted in a work environment. Every week was another epiphany after another. One of my favorites was the "knowing your core values". Having had some experience on this subject I was all ready to dive-in. Core Values is key. Knowing your core values. 

Lori makes it so easy to pinpoint. One time we were speaking about something else and we both realized...OMG...that is a core value for me. I hadn't written it down before, but discovered later that if ever a core value fit was the one I mentioned at that time.  Knowing that piece of information also answered a long standing question in my head.  One of the "why's" as to my constant upset with other places I had worked.

What were the results from working with Lori?

Many things. One is a great looking resume. I thought, wow, I look good and it was all from work I had already done elsewhere but didn't know how to say it or present it. Another is the clarity of knowing where I will feel good when I do work. What I really want and with the kind of people I really want to work with on a daily basis. This entire process is so valuable. The best money I ever spent and I am not kidding or exaggerating. I was only hoping it would be valuable and it really was valuable.< I know stuff and it has value and is marketable. Lori showed me those things and it gives me confidence.

Anything else you’d like to add?

Lori delivers above and beyond. The highest quality of exchange, 'more than you expected.' I told my friends this over and over: 'I wish I had her 10-20-even 30 years ago.' Every one, and I mean EVERYONE, needs a Lori. Her understanding,patience, how she problem solves, putting things in simple terms, was mind blowing. I wish I could that well. I present a problem and she could turn it around and yes...another epiphany.

Lori, is worth every penny. It isn't about a title. It is about enjoying everyday doing work you love with people you like and are like minded. You'll know what you are looking for when you interview.  I never say this, but I will say it here. Lori is a major key into the rest of my life doing what I always wanted to do. That is: Being happy doing what I do, everyday. Something I have been saying for years. Allowing be Sherlock.  Finding my people. They are out there and now I know what I am looking for in that respect.
