Do your dreams change from day to day? You’re not broken, but you might just be a scanner

Dreams change

Today’s guest post is by Carla Watkins of carlalouise.com

These days, when I mention a new business idea, I know I’ll be met with some rolling of eyes and muttered comments of “oh no, not ANOTHER one” from some people.

I’ve planned, tested and scrapped more businesses than most people will ever run, had seventeen jobs in nine years, have driven my loved ones up the wall with my inability to pick one thing and stick to it, and am still justifying to some people the decision to close my web design business, when it was on track to make enough money to let me quit my day job.

Trying to find your perfect career? Why I stopped trying to choose just one thing

You know when you are sat with a careers adviser at school (if you were lucky enough to even have one?!) and they ask you what job you’d like to have when you are older?

3 signs that it’s time for a career change

New ending

A few years ago I had a severe case of the career blues. All the signs were there – I felt them in my body, heart and soul every time my alarm went off in the morning.

I knew what was wrong, and I knew the reasons. But sometimes it’s hard to create change, hard to escape the daily routines that are dragging us down, hard to see the other options.

What would you do differently if money were no object?

Head in the clouds 2

This is a sneaky peak into my online course Quiet Creations: Kick-Start

I love having my head in the clouds.

Allowing daydreams to take over from conscious thought is often where I have my most creative moments and ideas. It also happens to be something that many introverts are brilliant at.

This exercise is all about letting go of reality for a moment and thinking about your perfect life. I want you to imagine that the world is your oyster. All the usual practicalities that can hold you back are no longer barriers. Money is no object and you can literally wish for anything.
