Between Doors – Uncovering What’s Next in a Mid-Life Career Crisis

There are so many wise old sayings out there that are powerful – and that can also trigger many of my clients.  One of them is when one door closes another door opens.  It is a true statement.  It can be a powerful to believe.  It can give hope. It can also be angering when the time between the one door closing and the other door opening is long and drawn out seeming like an eternity with no end.  It is frustrating to be in that dark hallway between what was known and is now gone, and what exciting new opportunity is on the horizon but has not yet materialized.  It is a difficult time especially when the transitional time revolves around one’s job.  There are added stressors of financial stability and self-worth. Has a guiding dream lost its spark? Has once inspiring work begun to feel stale? Does your work or your life feel too small for what you are becoming? Have you found yourself forced into a time of career transition? Do you dream of work that is more true, more vital and more fully you? Is what is next for your professionally unclear?

    Great interview, very supportive for transitioning people which is everyone at some point or another. Being in a period of uncertainty and not rushing into something too soon is a helpful perspective.

      Judy – Glad you enjoyed the interview. Rikk is certainly an expert in the field and a compassionate guide. And yes, the thoughts he offers are good for other transitions and points of uncertainty in ones life, not just in regards to career. That scary unknowing point before what’s next can make us jump into something that is not right. Being comfortable in the uncertainty can bring powerful clarity.
