In the spirit of acquiescing to our society’s (and my) love for bite sized pieces of information, I hereby proclaim this week the beginning of my “Career Tip of the Week” feature.
Last week, I had the opportunity to interview Kat West, a certified coach who works with people in the entertainment industry to help them take the leading role in their offstage lives. And when I asked her for one thing someone stuck in some aspect of their lives can do to ‘unstick’ themselves, she and I discussed spending 10-20 minutes thinking about where you want to be one month from now. What does that look like, SPECIFICALLY. She put it best when she said, “It sounds counterintuitive because people may think, ‘Don’t I want to be open to all possibilities and isn’t being specific very confining?’ That’s understandable but if you don’t narrow things down, your energy, attention and action will be diffused over lots of disparate ideas and it will slow your momentum down.”
Kat’s interview will be released on Give Me Astoria next week, so stay tuned for more life momentum tidbits, more info on how she followed her career path to where she is today and more.
