I am off for an interview tomorrow and I’m dreading it. Not because I don’t want the job, but because it isn’t the right time for me, what with the two other types of paid work that I have already committed to until July.
So how do I find myself in this position? I didn’t have a vision for myself and quite simply if you don’t have a vision for yourself someone else will have one for you! Instead of saying, “Actually I am already committed for now, but would love you to remember me for any opportunities for September,” I took on board someone else’s wants and needs and now find myself in an undesirable position.
For anyone wanting to avoid my predicament (and that includes me!) have both a vision of how you want things to be and the language to ensure that YOUR plan and not that of another’s is what comes to pass.
