FIRST, GOOD NEWS FOR YOU : You are not the only one!!
In Madrid last saturday, we had 18 persons like you in our first training “Kickstart your Jobfulness”.
18 Cometers, men and women, from 27 to 55 years old, coming from Spain, France, Hungary, Nicaragua, Belgium..
18 unique personal and professional trajectories…
all sharing in common the desire to reinvent their worklife to get aligned with their deep aspirations.
9 hours of training, 6 experts & coach, 7 workshops, 15 pages of hand-writing notes, many many exchanges / questioning / doubts… of course all this cannot be transmitted in a blog post!
Yet, we want to share with all of you who could not make it, 9 suggestions to empower you to Kickstart your Own Jobfulness!
These 8 suggestions are meant to be directions for to be applied in the long run in a process of change.
#1 WAKE UP EARLY A SATURDAY MORNING [NOT ALL SATURDAYS DONT WORRY!]
Your alarm clocks rings at 8am a saturday … to go to a training, a yoga class, to meditate, to go running, hiking… whatever is good for you. What matters is that you WAKE UP and DO things, to prove to yourself that you have the energy, determination and courage needed to go through the long process of change you want to do.
#2 GET IN TOUCH WITH PEOPLE DIFFERENT FROM YOU
Dont stick with the same friends, who have approximately the same age and background as you. Make the most of every opportunity to meet and exchange with older people, or younger : persons who have different life experiences, and therefore see life with a different lens.
Personnaly I learn a lot with older people. I love the wisdom mixed with the crazy hunger to explore new things that older people have. I also enjoy spending quality time with younger people. It forces you to get perspective on your own life experience, to frame and share key learnings.
#3 SHARE WITHOUT EGO
The number one thing you definitely have to get rid of for the Jobfulness journey is your EGO. Your EGO is just a saboteur of change. It prevents you from admitting to yourself, and to others, the negative aspects of your current situation you want to change. It blocks you to go forward and change.
Try to shut up your ego as often as possible and dare to share openly with people in the same situation as you your difficulties, your pains, your fears. They will do the same. And you will go forward.
#4 TREAT YOURSELF OFFLINE MOMENTS
Schedule specific moments in your agenda, during the weekend / on evenings, in which you will WORK on yourself and your change. Get FOCUS on your work, yourself, your feeling. What generally helps most for that: turn your phone off. Get rid of the annoying notifications, of our crazy habit to check our phone (on average 85 times a day), and wait for something we dont actually wait for.
#5 TAKE THE TIME TO REFLECT ON WHAT YOU NEVER DO
Do you sometimes say to yourself “ I miss something...” “Somehow I am not 100% fulfilled” “ I want a more fulfilling job”. But do you know which necessary ingredients constitute your own recipe of a fulfilled life ?
YOUR recipe is very different from MINE or the one of your neighbor.
Take the time to reflect on that !
#6 MAP OUT YOUR RESOURCES
What do you have TODAY to reach this your objective ?
1) List out your INTERNAL resources : your skills, your knowledge, your strenghts, your experience..
2) List out your EXTERNAL resources : your network, your family..
3) What do you NOT have today to reach this DREAMED professional situation ?
#7 ALWAYS FINISH WITH A SPECIFIC OBJECTIVE AND AN ACTION PLAN WITH DEADLINES
What can you do to acquire the resources you need to reach your objective?
End each session of work, or each new week you begin in your process of change, with ONE precise action to implement to help you achieve your objective.
The action should be feasible, measurable, detailed and timed with a precise deadline.
#8 BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF
Dont fool yourself. Nobody cares if you do your commitment or not, except yourself.
Even if you are accompanied with Cometa, with a coach or whoever, YOU are the only one responsible to make it happen or not.
So, ready to change?
Of course this journey to Jobfulness is much more easy when you get the motivation and long-term support of like-minded people and dedicated coachs.
Hence CO-META : reach your objectives in group !
