2 YEAR STATUS... and now what?
Today I can celebrate two years of being self-employed. It's been two years since the day I left my old job and started up on my own! I can't believe that time has gone by so fast, but then again, a lot of different things have happened during these years. Great new acquaintances, new clients, new things in my portfolio and a lot of new experiences. Lately I've been spending a lot of time trying to make a status of the last year or two whilst trying to figure out what is gonna happen next. Which move should be my next, what do I really want to do with this (both career-wise but also in a bigger perspective) and in the end, but most importantly, what will make me HAPPY. Not that I'm not happy – I am! – and more, but I would also like to keep growing. One thing is to have an idea of what your perfect life may look like, but another thing is, what it actually feels like, when all your expectations and goals have been reached.
I feel very satisfied with where I am now and how I've spent my last years, but at the same time I have to set new goals in order to keep my motivation at the top! Searching for the next mountain to climb and a way to keep getting better at the things I love doing.
Maybe it's my age, maybe it's just me, but what about you – do any of you recognize these thoughts? And what do you do about them? Which active steps do you take in order to grow and set new goals for yourself?
