Episode 129

129: When do you know it’s time to move on?

It’s easy to get stuck in the same routine – same job, same tasks, same projects. However there comes a time when maybe it’s time to move on to something new. In this episode we discuss experiences we’ve had with moving on to new endeavours, and how you know you’re ready for a change.

Key takeaways

When moving on, rather than running away from something run towards something. It can be dangerous running away from something with nothing to run towards. Find something that excites you and continues propelling you forward towards your goals.

Take a moment to occasionally check in with your career goals. Are you currently doing what you want to be doing? How does the current experience fit into your overall journey and path?

If your current employer is draining your creativity or sucking out your energy or love for design, consider ways in how to get this back. Go back to your roots and remember why or how you fell in love with design in the first place.
