“Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.”
-Seth Godin, American author, entrepreneur, marketer, and public speaker
The point of today’s quote is the main reason I am a coach today. Over 23 years ago, when I was working in sales and marketing for a well-known pharmaceutical company, I realized my inner voice was saying things like:
- Thank God it’s Friday!
- I don’t want to wake up and go to work!
- When will this be over?
- I can’t wait to go on vacation!
- Oh, No! Monday is coming!
Of course, I’m being a bit dramatic. Still, as many as 70% of working professionals feel and say similar things to themselves and perhaps to others in their lives.
Should you see yourself or others in the thoughts above, find the courage to challenge yourself to redesign your life and career. You may find yourself looking forward to getting home from vacation, so you can get back to the exciting life you have designed.
