Once you’re in a slot, it’s harder and harder to move out of it. The status quo is here because it’s good at persisting.
One option, particularly if you’re on your own, is to take your development seriously. Instead of simply clearing the incoming and reacting to what’s knocking on your door, you can invest the time to learn and the effort to practice.
My friends at Akimbo have a few workshops that are worth considering:
The Freelancer’s Workshop begins tomorrow. It’s about one simple idea: becoming the sort of freelancer who gets better clients. Because better clients change your work and your standing as well.
Bernadette Jiwa’s Story Skills Workshop is back beginning tomorrow as well. The story we tell ourselves (and others) drives how we spend our days and who responds to us.
The breakthrough Real Skills Conference (truly a conference, no speeches!) is back on August 19th but you’ll need to get tickets in advance.
And, if you haven’t already, I hope you’ll consider the altMBA. Six years in, it’s proven itself, and now it’s your turn to leap.
