#5 - should I stay or should I go?


You have constant doubt about the job you’re in, but you don’t take any steps to finding a new direction either. Living in this constant uncertainty of what to do can be very draining.


I think this is one of the most common questions I get as a coach, however: should I stay or should I go? You have a good job, with a decent pay, you know what you’re doing, but you’re also not very happy. A new job seems like a big leap into the unknown with an uncertain outcome. Things could turn out to be better, but what if they would be worse? Living in this constant uncertainty of what to do can be very draining.


Clients often want me to answer this question for them, but the situation is so different for everyone, that I can’t possibly do that. What we can do is figuring out together what’s going on and we will start working both on what bothers you in your current job, and what are the options for a new life.


We will work on the things you are not happy with now, whether it’s your difficult manager, your high workload or the lack sense of purpose. By working on three different levels, the practical level, the psychological level and the existential level, your feelings about your job can shift a lot.


We will also look at what other options you have out there in the world. We’ll try to get a clearer idea if they’ll be better or worse. We will look at risks and potentials. What has been stopping you from taking steps? Is your hesitation or fear justified?


Whatever you decide, whether you make peace with your current job, or you make a plan how to take a next exciting step, coaching will really help to finally feel unstuck and have a much happier working life.


All these strategies are very effective, but just reading them in a social post won’t help you solve your problem. Coaching really can. Why not have a look around at parquicoaching.com and book a free coaching consultation?
