Stability is Over Rated
The following is an excerpt David’s interview in Top Coaching Techniques.
Ingrid: It’s interesting that you should say that, because often times it’s easy to say or think that the grass is always greener on the other side. You can get into a bit of a habit about changing jobs.
David: You can. But, you know, I think that stability is overrated. I’ve got to say, I just had a client session today and she was saying, ‘I switched from this to that, and then I’d do this and whatever, and maybe there’s something wrong with me.’ and I said, ‘Well, maybe there is, but maybe your parents just taught you that you should pick something and stick to it, and maybe that’s not the way life has to be. Maybe you should play guitar for a while and join a band, then maybe you should try another career, say, mowing grass. Then maybe you want to be an accountant. I say, what’s the harm? As long as you follow your passion and you’re enjoying it as you do it, and you don’t spend ten years studying just to see if you like it. If you love it keep doing it, and if something else grabs your fancy go and do that.’
