Often, a chief financial officer becomes the chief executive officer. Though Bob knew this, he also knew he absolutely did not want it even though everyone around him felt he would make an excellent CEO.
But lately, Bob had been growing more and more dissatisfied. He realized that he was only on his current career path because he “should” be, not because he really wanted to be. It wasn’t his true choice.
Both he and his family had invested so much time, money and energy over 20 years that he felt he couldn’t follow his passion, which was to be a golf coach. He was watching his dream slip away, simply because of a “should”.
Action – If you “should” be in your current job, relationship, house or even city when you don’t really want to be, it’s time to make a new choice and end the frustration and sheer pain being caught in the middle.
