You are adventurous. Or, you are a very cautious person. No matter what, there are times when you consider career jumping. Doing things which are very different as compared what you have been doing. It is thrilling to think that you will not be tethered to your desk and that you will roaming the streets capturing events and sharing them with the world. Or to think that instead of churning code and filling time logs, you will be writing a book.
Talking to people close to you doesn’t pan out as you expect. Either you get ‘think of plan B and of your family’ kind of wise counsel or you get ‘follow your heart, leap’ kind of stuff. Nothing else.
So what does one do?
Make a list of activities which make you feel good and you feel they are worth your while -no matter how good the results are or are not. Think in terms of verbs (doing things, instead owning things or achieving milestones or rewards). You will then need to start doing them by allocating some of your time and resources. Invest in learning them better. Invest in meeting people who might be of help. Invest in helping others in doing them.
