Why is it so hard to figure out your next career move?

Many of us are raised with the idea that we’ll discover what we’re good at, maybe get a relevant degree at uni, then embark of a clear, linear career path. And each step along the way will be obvious.

While that may be true for some, it hasn’t been the case for most people I know. A certainly not for most of my clients.

One of the problems with this paradigm is the idea that we should ‘do’ (i.e. get a job doing) what we’re good at, then everything will fall into place. But just because you’re good at something, doesn’t mean you’ll find it fulfilling as a job. My husband, for instance, has very strong administration skills, but a role with a high admin burden would do his head in within a week.

So, what’s the solution? Well, I happen to have an answer: get to know your strengths.
