It feels a bit of a cliché to be writing in January about New Year, New You, New Start-type stuff. But actually I think we all do reflect a bit on our life in general at this time of year, and that’s a healthy thing to do. I’m certainly reflecting on last year both work-wise and personally, and planning what I want to achieve during 2020. It’s good to set goals, take stock, think about changes we might want to make and things we’d like to do over the coming year.
I like to consider all aspects of my life when doing this. For example we moved house a couple of years ago and the trials and tribulations of owning a listed building have continued throughout 2019. It’s been a stressful time, but we’ve achieved a lot, and one of the things I’m reflecting on now is what work still needs doing during this coming year and how to do it with minimum disruption! I’m also contemplating a number of other responsibilities/activities I have involvement in and how they might develop over the coming year.
Time off over Christmas also can prompt decisions to explore self-employment when people
If you’re wondering as you return to work this month whether self-employment might be the answer to dissatisfaction you might be feeling with your working life, do get in touch. I’m always happy to talk about my experiences of working as a self-employed HR consultant (the ups and downs!) and help give an insight into what it’s like and whether it will bring the solutions you’re looking for.
