In the past couple of weeks, our day-to-day lives have changed drastically. Our schedules have been flipped upside down and inside out, and we are all doing our best to find normalcy in our new routines. These unexpected times have pushed us into a newfound virtual world that is far from what we are accustomed to. What some of us might not see is the positive that can come out of these circumstances. This new time gives us an opportunity to reflect on who we are, what we want, and where we see ourselves once life returns to what it once was.
As you sit in front of your computer screen, whether you are working remotely or logging on to your online courses, you are now given the opportunity to eliminate the background noise. Classmates, colleagues, and environment now play a lesser role in your current situation. You have the opportunity to focus solely on the content that you are learning or putting into practice, which only leaves one question - are you fulfilled by the content of your work?
Take this time to consider the type of career path that truly makes you happy once all other factors are taken out of the equation. Although we know that life will return to how we once knew, it is important to have a career that you love waking up for when all outside factors are removed. The current situation will pass in time, and I hope you all come out of this more certain of who you are as a professional than ever before.
