1. What would I do if I could?
It's balancing the art of possibility with the reality of life. keeping that open mind as to future possibilities, keeping your learning going and having conversations and checking back to what matters to your values, the things you enjoy in work so that you can think about what's possible in the future.
2. What would you do if you had to?
Someone turns up at work that changes the whole place and you don't want to be there or you get fired or made redundant, at the very least you want your résumé and profiles to be up-to-date and you want to have kept connected with the industry, the sector, the people who are in your network so that you're in a position to move if you had to.
3. Identify five questions that you want to ask yourself that you must answer every three or two months?
It might be something like, “How do I feel on a Sunday night?” “What have I learned lately?” “Am I happy?” Program them in your phone and have them pop up every three months. So come up with your own questions, check in and answer those same questions every three months and then ask yourself, “What do I need to do as a result of those?”
