Summer has come and passed.
Wake me up when September ends.
Green Day was a famous band when I was younger.
And this is one of my favourite songs.
Wake me up when September ends...
Is what I tell myself on January 1st every year.
Because I don't want to waste the next 3 months.
I know that 90 days can make a difference.
Some amazing things have happened to me in the last 3 months of the year:
Felt confident in my value and contributions.
Network with new people at work and built new relationships.
Received a great performance rating and my boss agreed to a promotion.
Received new job opportunities via LinkedIn (Yes, I got the job!)
Positive change can happen quickly once everything "clicks".
It clicked for me.
It clicked for my clients.
It clicked for my course students.
The only reason why it won't click for you is...
Because you're not willing or courageous enough to try.
Is it normal to feel scared?
Yes, it is.
But sometimes, feeling a little scared but doing it anyway, is better than delaying your career, once again.
The people who feel the fear but did it anyway, are the exact ones who enjoy an amazing career journey.
So Mei, what's your 90-day plan? :)
With love (courage),
Mei Phing xx
