When you are stuck. When you are bored. When looking at the same heap of paperwork in the ‘in’ tray, or the same components in the rack, or the same ingredients … When the nasty feeling that you might be heading for redundancy doesn’t go away even though you tell yourself you’re being paranoid. When the economic indicators suggest increasingly strongly that your industry is heading downhill.
There are times when a career change would be a stupid luxury, and the best thing to do is keep your head down and carry on working until the economic situation improves. At present, job security is not something to be given up lightly. Sometimes, dreams and ambitions do have to be put on hold.
But not for ever.
There is no reason why the dreams and ambitions should be forgotten, and planning for a brighter future will help to carry you through the dark and boring days. If your present job is insecure, then you have no time to lose; either way, time spent in planning is never wasted.
