Transition for Beginners

If you are beginning an involuntary career transition or thinking about making a career change, here are a few questions to consider as you begin. Good questions are better than easy answers.
• What do I do next?
• What do I need to know?
• Who knows what I need to know?
• What do I need to do to be better than anyone else?
• What value do I bring to the market and how do I promote it?
• What can I control?
• Who do I know?
• Who knows me?
• Who knows about me?
• How do I manage my mindset?

Write it down. Leave it. Come back to it. Write more stuff. Leave it. Come back to it. Write more stuff. When you are comfortable – begin. Tweak it as you learn.

An unwritten plan is a wish.
