Your Life is a Book: Outline and Write Your Next Chapter

You can look at your life as if it is a book with many chapters – some that have been written and some that have yet to be written. The chapters of your book are the different phases, important events, significant people and memorable moments in your personal life and the different roles, responsibilities, accomplishments and organizations in your professional life. A transition is what happens between chapters – that blank space at the bottom of the page that ends one chapter and the space at the top of the page that begins the next chapter. You have experienced many transitions in your life – some that you have made happen for yourself and some that have happened to you. We can meticulously plan and prepare for certain transitions such as a birth, marriage or new job, however, we often do little or no planning and preparation for transitions like a job loss or retirement.

Where are you in your personal life – at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of a chapter or are you in a transition? Where are you in your professional life – at the beginning, in the middle or at the end of a chapter or are you in a transition? If you are at the beginning of a chapter, be patient with yourself and give yourself the time to adapt and adjust to this new chapter of your personal or professional life. If you are in the middle of a chapter, it’s time to start outlining or planning the next chapter of your personal or professional life. If you are at the end of the chapter, you want to write or prepare the next chapter of your personal or professional life based on your plan or outline. If you are in transition, be comfortable with the fear, instability and uncertainty, let go of the past and look forward to the future.

Please send me an e-mail and let me know how you are outlining or planning and writing or preparing the next chapter of your personal or professional life.
