As I sat there, I started thinking about Fitting Rooms.
What a weird name – fitting room.
Who thought of calling a fitting room a “fitting room” anyway?
Why not “Try on Space?”
Or “Does This Make Me Look Fat Room?”
Or “Dressing Experiment Room?”
Or “You Look Awesome Room?"
Or “Test Market Room?"
Or how about “Should I Buy This" Room?
Nope, we seem to be stuck with Fitting Rooms or Dressing Rooms.
My client and I were chatting about finding a job that is a good fit.
Is your current job a good fit?
Are you wearing a job you have outgrown?
Are you investing in a career that you no longer love, or even like?
Are you stuck in a role that makes you uncomfortable from the time you arrive to the time you leave work each day?
Are you afraid to discard the job you now hold because you lack the knowledge, confidence and courage to explore other options?
If you are in career transition mode, are you trying on different job possibilities via the interview process before saying “yes” to the offer?
Are you asking tough questions during interview conversations to help you gauge both risk and reward?
Are you settling on the first thing that comes along because you think it is better than what you have now?
Whatever job you are presently wearing or hope to wear in the future, I hope you look absolutely amazing in it.
If not, there are plenty of possibilities from which to choose.
Find something that looks simply stunning on you.
