Why Your Career Has to Fit for You Today, Not Tomorrow

Many of us have bought into this idea that we have to put our noses to the grindstone and hustle today in order for us to have the lives we want tomorrow. I'm calling bullsh*t.

In the super quick presentations below, I explore why it's so important to make sure your career is fitting for you today. When we start treating our days like microcosms of our lives, we can actually begin living the lives we're working so hard for.

Lovingly Assertive Boundary-Setting

megan leatherman career coach and human resources consultantMy post earlier this week, How to Gracefully Choose Between Work and Life, touched on this issue of setting good boundaries at work. This is one of the toughest issues that comes up for people in the workplace, and unfortunately, most of our organizations are pretty anti-boundary. We don't really like it when someone declines a meeting, or says they need to work from home instead today, or doesn't get back to us within .25 milliseconds.

But if we're going to stay sane in today's world of work, we have to learn how to set - and enforce - good boundaries in a way that's both loving and assertive.

In an effort to help us all do that, I've created a SlideShare presentation called Lovingly Assertive Boundary-Setting. I hope you enjoy this visual presentation!
