Is Your Job Transition Half-Full or Half-Empty?

Some people see the glass half full. Others see it half empty. I see a glass that’s twice as big as it needs to be. ~George Carlin

Wow, do we live in some exciting times. Maybe not exciting, as in going to the ice cream shop or candy store or other fun place. Instead: Trying to cross a super busy street without the help of a stop sign.

Words used in media

It seems like the news is designed to keep us on the edge of our seats, for some reason, doesn’t it?

At maybe no other time in our lives — as much as when we’re in job transition — do we pay attention to what we don’t have. We don’t have the new job. We don’t have economic security. We often don’t even have a schedule for our week, such as certain times to be somewhere. It can be unsettling.

At the same time, what we may have is a higher level of freedom (probably temporary). We may be free to choose how we spend TODAY. We may be able to pick a place we’d love to work, and check it out. We may be able to learn something new, adding to our own pool of abilities.

If you are in job transition, it’s important to feel like you are on track, so that thoughts about what you don’t have shrink away. When that phone rings or email arrives, will you be ready? Will you sound excited or enthusiastic? Would YOU hire you? Why?

Remember: When times are uncertain, it’s sometimes automatic to focus on what we don’t have, because we want to set things straight. That’s OK. But, focusing on what you DO have is what’s going to get you the job.

People want to talk and work with people who get things done and who contribute to a productive work atmosphere. Focus on how you can do that, and what lucky organization will get to be your next employer.

All The Best!
