Join Jenny Blake for an in-depth discussion in this video Reverse engineer past pivots, part of Figuring Out Your Next Move.
- Pivots vary in size and scope.…Some are dramatic, such as quitting a job…to start your own business…in a completely different industry.…While others are more subtle,…such as making changes within your current role.…As you go through this course…and contemplate next moves and next steps,…consider the riskometer.…Your comfort zone is where work's fine.…You feel pretty good hanging out there,…everything's comfortable and cozy.…If you stay there for too long,…you're likely to eventually fall into your stagnation zone,…where you're getting bored and restless,…or maybe even actively dissatisfied with your work.…
The ideal range for change for impactors…is your stretch zone where you feel challenged,…excited, and definitely a little bit of fear and adrenaline,…but it feels mostly manageable,…even as it challenges you to grow…and stretch in new ways.…However, if you try to pivot too sharply,…too far from what you're doing now,…it's likely to send you into your panic zone,…where you feel more a sense of paralysis and uncertainty…
