"A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it." Given a new market/job opportunity, if you don't create change and reinvent yourself, you have already seen your destiny.
When we take a new road changing roles and/or move to a different organization or market, we have an unique opportunity to reinvent ourselves. This is a time to dump the baggage you've been carrying and make some course correction.
Three simple things to keep top of mind:
1. Reinvention. Ditch the baggage, you are no longer hostage to the past. What do you want your legacy to be? You have a clean slate. Use a 'stop, start, continue' methodology as a framework.
2. Get to Know Yourself. Your personality traits become your personal "ops manual". Understand what causes your stress behavior. Avoid it or prep yourself when you see it on the horizon. Try 16personalities.com.
3. Enjoy The Ride. This is an opportunity that might only come a couple times in a career, enjoy it for what it is, a very special time in your career and life. Celebrate the change with friends and family.
