The Best Time to Explore New Career Options

new-chapter-sign-Aaron PaulJohn is tired. He is tired of the corporate grind, the office politics, short-term strategy, commuting, C.Y.A. meetings, seeing people he has worked with for years get laid off, fearing that at 52 he’s becoming a target. It’s become nothing more than a paycheck that can disappear at any time and high blood pressure.

So many executives feel as John does. They want to try something new; they know there has got to be something better, an alternative to what they’ve been doing. People want to feel excited by what they do. They want to have more control and to know that their hard work, their good work, is lining their own pockets. They want to have the security of knowing they won’t be let go because the company can find someone younger and less expensive.
