If you feel like you’re in a bit of a slump or just simply don’t feel yourself, check out this weeks content on the blog…
Too often in past professions I have felt that ‘this just isn’t me’.
This week we highlighted Richard Fertig’s chat with Ronsley on Bond Appetit. Where he shared three steps to beat your identity crisis. The one piece of advice which stood out to me the most was to “find the excitement in the change”.
Change is scary, particularly career-wise. You don’t know who your co-workers are or if you’ll be good at the job in their eyes. What if you don’t succeed and have to start all over again?
But we shouldn’t let change scare us out of fantastic opportunities. Instead we should grab it and run. Be excited for new beginnings and meeting new people. There’s always a chance that the thing you’re scared of will end up serving you the most.
If you’re wanting to be a podcaster but have trouble breaking through those scary mental barriers, this episode of Should I Start a Podcast is for you. Dave Eddy jumped on to talk about what advice he’d give his 20-year-old-self and how the most important thing was to really go back to the basics.
If you feel the need to perfect every aspect of your job or even passion. Take a breath and perhaps read one of our past articles about how to let go of perfectionism for more insight.
So don’t psych yourself out of doing something awesome because you’re too scared. Aim to take small steps and improve each time.
I’m quite comfortable now with who I am and couldn’t picture myself trying to be anyone else. However for some of us, being another person is a job in itself!
Meanwhile in this weeks team post Tuesday, Shannon Morrison returned once again. He discussed how to be a ghost-writer and nail the client’s voice. Here are one of his tips for getting into someone else’s head…
“When writing pieces for clients, mimicking their voice and the way they speak helps me to hear if the article sounds like something they would write, or if it’s way off the mark.”
