It doesn’t matter of you are furloughed or working from home, or even let go, in fact this might be a blessing in disguise.
If we have more time away from the office environment, we have more time to reflect on whether what we are doing is going to take us to where we want and whether or not we actually enjoy the job.
It also enables us to reflect on the progress that we have made in our work life. Do you enjoy your job and get satisfaction out of it? What impact are you making on the company?
Going back to the fact that being away from your office environment may be a blessing in disguise is because:
You have managed to figure out what you really want and what is important
Your values and priorities have changed. I realised that what I want to do full time is focus on my online coaching business
You are able to focus on your side projects
You are able to devote more time to your passion because you don’t have the hassle of having to commute day in and day out. For me, I managed to kick start my blog and focus on my social media presence.
You can learn something new
The extra time may be a chance to get something new under your belt. That could be going back to university, learning a new hobby such as playing a musical instrument or art , etc. I decided to purchase courses online from Centre Of Excellence. I did a Yoga Diploma, Mindful Mental Health Course, Massage Therapist Diploma, Sports Massage Practitioner Course and a Sports Nutrition Diploma. All these things have helped to further me in my online business.
The future is uncertain, but one thing isn’t and that is we are in control of our work choices. Is it time to do what is best for ourselves and taking the leap of faith?
