Are You on the Right Path?


Last week on Instagram we asked how you were feeling about your job, and 65% of you said: “not good!”  

According to Forbes, millions of employees plan to change jobs this year. If you’re not sure if your job is the right fit (or if you just want to enjoy a moment of fun!), today we’re offering a little quiz to help you decide if your job is still serving you, or if you’re ready to move on to something else. 

Hope you enjoy!

  1. When your alarm goes off on a random Tuesday, are you feeling at least somewhat excited for your day?  Yes/No
  2. At the end of the week do you feel fulfilled, or at least satisfied with where your time and energy went?  Yes/No
  3. Do you receive regular appreciation from your boss, co-workers, or teammates?  Yes/No
  4. Do you feel satisfied with your financial compensation?  Yes/No
  5. Can you see a clear path forward from where you’re at (and is it the path you want to continue on for the coming years)? Yes/No
  6. No job is perfect, but is your work to-do list filled with more stuff you truly enjoy than stuff you dislike?  Yes/No
  7. Does your job challenge you in a good way and make you feel like you’re growing?  Yes/No 

Your Results: 

5-7 Yeses = Sounds Like a Good Thing! 

Congrats! It sounds like you’re enjoying your 9-5, so continue to grow and develop your skills, and of course, do regular check-ins to make sure you stay on the path you want to be. 

3-4 Yeses = It Could Be Time for a Change

Right now things probably aren’t terrible, but they also don’t seem great. You deserve a career you love, so don’t be afraid to shake things up and look for new opportunities. They could be at your current workplace or someplace new, but either way it’s worth it to find something that makes you feel happy (at least most days!). 

0-2 Yeses = Sounds Like You Want a New Job

Oh, we feel for you. It sounds like your job isn’t all you’d like it to be. It can be hard to make changes, but you deserve to pour your heart, time, and energy into something that makes you feel fulfilled. Set a goal to apply for something new, reach out to colleagues or friends that can help, or even go back to school to widen your options. Finding a job you love can take time and effort, but it’s worth it to do something that lights you up! 

We all go through different seasons in our careers, and even if you’re not in a sunny season right now, it doesn’t mean you’ll be stuck feeling unsatisfied forever. Sometimes just being aware that you need to make a change can help set things in motion. 🙂

Wishing you a fantastic day!

Some days you may feel like you’re not good enough, or doing enough. You may wish you could snap your fingers and turn into a version of yourself you think you should be with a perfect job, spotless house, and exciting hobbies (or whatever your definition of an ideal life may be).  

But here’s something you need to know … You are wonderful, just as you are. You are enough, right now.

A Less Stress Summer

A Less Stress Summer

Summer is synonymous with relaxation, but sometimes we find ourselves stressed out and not living our best, “feet in the sand, good book in hand,” season.

Worries happen to all of us. But, one of the easiest ways to feel more carefree is to take a moment to declutter your brain. Because here’s the deal: Our brain can only handle so many thoughts at once. Anything extra bouncing around distracts you from enjoying otherwise happy moments.

Here’s how:
