About The Class

Decision, decision ,decisions.

You want to make a confident decision about your career; whether that is finding a job, moving into a portfolio career or starting your own business. You don’t want to look back and regret the things you’ve never tried because you were too scared or indecisive. The most common mistake people unhappy in their work make is not to do something different. On the other hand. we don’t want to take bold decisions that we regret further down the line.

Evolutionary biologists have proven we have a natural aversion to moving on because we fear losing far more than we love winning, whether in romance or when considering career change.  

We can overcome our default setting as we start doing new things, interacting with different people and reinterpreting our life stories as we move towards the emerging possibilities.

Health warning to anyone set on quitting their jobs and/or can’t wait to get the satisfaction of telling your boss you’re leaving (a sub-text for you have no more power over me - f*** off). This fantasy can be so seductive when you’re in the midst of the daily grind and facing burnout. Yet without a plan you may end up returning to the very place you’ve hated after gallivanting around the globe or working on a pipedream business. You need a plan before pulling the trigger.

As a wise and long dead army officer once said ‘time spent in reconnaissance is seldom wasted’ Get clear, get sorted, make confident decisions.
