It’s easy to get stuck in what’s comfortable in a career. It’s when what was comfortable becomes unbearable that we do something different. Or some catastrophic career thing happens, like losing our job to make us change course in our career. We seek change, but we are scared of it. Change in small, self-imposed increments can strengthen us for catastrophic career happenings by giving us more resources to pull from; for example taking a class to learn something new or taking on work responsibilities that grow us in a new direction.
