It was the first time Michelle let her mind wander in months. Or maybe the first time in years. She had finally taken that hard earned vacation. And the change of place was feeling awesome.
Sitting in the sun, listening to the waves hitting the shore, the sound of kids playing nearby. But the more her mind wandered, the more it came back to the same thought: “I’m so ready for a change”.
Summer is a time of change. Vacations, in particular, have a way of throwing you into full tilt change. Change of scenery, change of daily routine, change of people you spend the day with, change of attitude (hopefully), change of pace, change of activities, etc.
And sometimes change inspires more change. When you step outside your routine, it gives you the chance to do some thinking. You might find yourself in Michelle’s flip flops; reflecting on your career, your future, or your impact. If you are a woman leader considering a career transition, you are not alone.
