As my other post of today also came from a comment I made, I share this one as well. This was in response to a person feeling stuck about her work and future.
For those who feel stuck at work, I invite you to do what another of my muses, James Altucher suggests: keep finding ways to add value. I'd suggest that work sucks for most of us because we see a lot of limits there that often are of our own creation.
And then there is the notion of the entre-ployee, and I think it's a good one. Come up with ten ideas a day that could make your workplace better, or your job more appealing. Think of ten ways that would be of value to your employer. And then go ahead and do (there are those who suggest it's better to apologize afterward than ask permission), or suggest, as is appropriate.
But if that's not your direction, then find a way to bring your true self out in the world outside of work, and do that when you are not at work, and then find a way to monetize that.
Or be creative in other ways. Maybe you could launch a house-sitting service, and then rent wouldn't be an issue. Or you could try to go live somewhere else just for helping out while you “find” yourself. Maybe create yourself as an airBNB concierge (I don't know if that's a real thing), where you help people run their homes as airBNB sites, and offer connections to local services to boot.
It's a new world, and a new economy. If you exercise your idea muscle, start making a list of ten ideas a day, and then allow idea sex to occur, you might find some great ways to express your inner self, and make some money at the same time.
And, as always, if you'd like some help doing it, reach out and schedule a consultation. We'll take a look if it's appropriate for us to work together, and then set up a structure to start you on your way.
