You’re Wrong if You Think Your Career Won’t Change

The Office Blend

career-change

We all underestimate our own potential to evolve. I know that I’ve made this mistake. As a graduate student in psychology, I was quite certain that I knew my path. At that early juncture, my interests centered solely on the development and validation of selection tests. (Focusing on topics such as motivation or aligning work with strengths, never occurred to me.) As most of us do, I surmised that with the passage of time, I would remain relatively constant as an individual — and that satisfaction with that direction would remain strong. However, time has a way of changing us. In fact, that original career trajectory is far from how I define myself as a contributor today.

Truth be told — we all evolve. In many cases, it is difficult to detect the changes as they are occurring. (They overtake us somehow.)

Does this impact work and career? Of course.
