The Way

Do you have a life plan? Is your career mapped out?

I wonder, how’s it going? Is it taking the form you envisaged? Are you where you thought you’d be? Is it all neat and tidy?

Probably not.

If you’re like most people, your life and your career are different from what you planned.

  • Did you plan to move to New York from Florida, but instead wound up in Portugal?
  • Did you see remaining an owner of your business only to be lured away by your client?
  • Are you concerned that your last four jobs have averaged 18 months each?
  • Do you want to be an entrepreneur, but are instead looking for the next paying job?

How does that make you feel? Frustrated? Or are you okay with where you are?

I once read an old Spanish poem that helps put these questions in perspective.

Translated, it says, The Way Is In The Going.

My guess is you’re exactly where you should be. Remain open to the possibilities. And make the most of them. It is your way.
