How long does it take to get back to normal when you lose your job? my client inquired.
I pondered the word.
What would you say if someone asked you this question? Would you give them a specific time frame such as:
- Six months?
- One year?
- Two weeks?
- A couple of days?
- 21 to 28 days?
Normal. Once again, I turned to the dictionary for a definition of this word:
a : according with, constituting, or not deviating from a norm, rule, or principle
b : conforming to a type, standard, or regular pattern
Will you get back to normal when you:
~~ find a job?
~~ finish your degree?
~~ quit your job?
~~ hear back from a recruiter?
~~ get the right job offer at the wrong salary?
~~ stop being a chameleon and figure out what makes you the amazing you?
~~ ask your boss to stop bullying you?
~~ get the courage to talk about yourself in an interview?
~~ reach out and ask for help?
~~ motivate yourself to lose the extra pounds?
~~ decide that you will pursue an advanced degree?
~~ pack it up and move to another city?
~~ stop living your life to please someone else?
~~ start living your life to please yourself?
~~ find your voice?
~~ accept a job for the salary you are worth?
~~ share your thoughts and ideas at meetings?
~~ negotiate the best deal for yourself?
~~ build your confidence?
~~ make your own decisions?
~~ stop berating yourself?
~~ realize that you are in the right company and the wrong job?
~~ find the courage to start over?
~~ focus more on ‘success’ than you do on failure?
~~ gain an understanding and appreciation for the many talents, gifts and skills you have been given?
