Career, Expectation and Identity

In yesterday’s post ‘How To Get The Life You Really Want’, maybe the title could have been ‘How To Get The Career That You Really Want’. But then as a free lance what you do and how you live are symbiotic.

In a career, it’s easy to live the label of expectation. My former self was a ‘Sales Consultant’; helpful, informative and knowledgeable; confident, extroverted and loud; aggressive, persuasive and pushy; Labels can be useful, lazy or dangerous.

To be yourself, sometimes you have to shed the weight of expectation.

I work on projects but they don’t define me.

Who I am is not defined by what I do.

Who I am informs what I do.
