New Workplace Venture And How To Start

Tags : 

Boredom may be the leading cause for a job or career change. Are you considering trying something new? Does the idea of a new workplace venture excite you?

It should.

The most important part is that it doesn’t always mean you have to jump ship. You may be able to get started with your current job.

Three Year Itch

Are you not feeling it in your job? Is it not all that it’s cracked up to be? Sometimes this starts to unfold around year two or three.

There are at least two choices. First, you can dig deep, turn over a new leaf, and make some motion towards rediscovering positivity. The other option is that you get out of Dodge.

If you are considering exploring a new opportunity by leaving your existing one, it may be a bit secretive. On the other hand, embarking on a new venture while staying right where you are doesn’t have to be.

Have you ever witnessed the energy of the new hire? They come on board, motivated, fired up, and ready to make some things happen?

They don’t have any history with the organization and everyone is on their best behavior? Sometimes we call this the honeymoon period. Everything seems rosy.

Is there a chance that seeing your existing role through a new lens could change things? Is there a conversation that needs to occur, some wiggle room or more tolerance in your navigation, or is there an apology required?

Do you think it’s possible?

New Workplace Venture

Perhaps the best way to turn over a new leaf is to start. Sometimes it is that simple. You-just-have-to-start.

It may begin with a conversation with your boss, with your team, or with your peers. It may begin without any conversation, just a renewed attitude, a fresh look through a different lens.

What if you were starting the job for the first time today? What energy would you bring? Would you be excited?

There may be many ways to get started. One of the best is to establish a new commitment and then, begin.

Best Time

Tags : 

Are you motivated to do what needs to be done? Are you prepared to take the time, use the resources required, and appropriately measure the results? 


Everyday people search for the motivation, dedication, and energy to produce at minimum what is required or at a premium something extraordinary. What is sometimes taken for granted is the opportunity associated with the timeliness of the delivery.

Sometimes the best workout occurs when you are dreading it the most, the email you’ve been waiting for arrives when you’re not actively engaged in your inbox, and your next opportunity occurs when you least expect it. The best time isn’t always when you’ve planned, when you haven’t, or when you want.

If you need that extra push to get started, consider that the best time may be right now.
