The Examined Life - Rethinking Career & Life Goals Post COVID-19
On trial for his life, Socrates supposedly said "The Unexamined Life Is Not Worth Living." Given that many of us have been quarantined for two months, give or take, I am interested in people who have taken this time to reflect on their lives, career path, or even goal timing - perhaps a couple drinks deep on their balcony - and if that deliberation has been reaffirming or transformative.
Much like 9/11 inspired many to join the military, and the global recession motivated many to swear off Wall Street forever while making others all the more interested, the COVID-19 crisis will be yet another generation-defining event that will lead some down paths previously unexplored while strengthening others' confidence that their current path is ideal.
Are you moving up the timeframe to leave your job to start a business? Changing career paths entirely? All the more inspired to go back to school or bust your ass for that promotion? Moving to the beach in South America for a less stressful life? Looking only for roles that offer extensive work from home options?
What's going through your head at the moment?
