The Hamster Wheel and Career Freedom

Written By: Catherine Morgan | Comments Off on The Hamster Wheel and Career Freedom

Whether you work for yourself or someone else, you can get trapped in the busyness of doing, stuck on the hamster wheel of trying to do more and make more. 

More is better, right?

Sometimes more is better, and sometimes it’s not. 

When we are running around with our hair on fire, we can forget that we actually have the freedom to choose how we spend our time and our money. 

As we approach the U.S. Independence Day holiday, I ask you to pull up and take a look at how you choose to spend your time, money, and energy. 

Are you happy with your choices? If so, celebrate being on your right path. 

If you’re not happy, are you willing to make different choices?

You’d be surprised how much freedom of choice you actually have. You can fire the crazy client, quit the toxic job (or at least start your job search), sell the too-big house, or create boundaries with soul-sucking people. 

Your knee-jerk reaction may be that you must have / do something, but having helped hundreds of professionals navigate through major work and life transitions for the past nine years, I can assure you that very few things are set in stone.

Is there something you need to stop doing?
