The other day I was typing happily on my Mac while sitting in bed.
What I was writing about really isn’t important. But what happened to me while I was writing is.
You see, it was the end of the day, and I was relaxed and happy – in my own home.
The last thing I expected was that I had something to worry about.
But I did.
Because out of nowhere my 17-pound cat, Lucy, jumped up to be with me. She wanted some snuggle time, I’m sure.
But she landed directly on my keyboard.
I panicked, thinking a 17-pound cat can’t be good for a Macbook, so instead of shooing her off like I should have, I tried to lift her.
What happened next is only for the brave of heart. . .
As you can see from her picture, Lucy is a calico, and if you know anything about calicos, ain’t nobody tell them what to do! 🙂
So Lucy dug her claws in. Yes, into my keyboard. And pried a key right off.
My precious Macbook (my third child) lost a tooth.
After a few minutes of fumbling with the key myself to try to get it back on and realizing I couldn’t, I knew I needed some expert help.
Tomorrow, I’m going to take my laptop to my Genius Bar appointment to see if they can help me out. But I don’t know what’s going to happen.
I’m not ready to give my baby up for a week (if they say I have to) to get this problem fixed.
I just need a little help, and I’m hoping they can do it right there and I’ll be as good as new.
Now what does any of this have to do with career help for you?
You may have come to the same point with your career change.
- Maybe you want to leave your job at some point to start your own business, but have some questions before you are ready to make any real moves.
- Maybe you’re thinking about moving to a new job, but you are not quite sure how making a midlife career change works – and until you do you’re not ready to make an investment in career coaching.
- Perhaps you’ve been thinking about career change for a long time, but you have a lot of fears or questions around it, and you never had anyone to talk to or ask about them.
Well, as you can see, I know the feeling that bigger is not always better.
Sometimes you just need a place to get a little bit of help.
You might not be ready for or interested in a coaching program that will help you complete the transition, because you’re still exploring the idea of making a change.
