Having lost my day job, I have had to take a long serious look at what I can do to keep the bills paid for the next two years. Let’s face it, at my age, getting back into the workforce will be difficult at best. Despite my willingness to work for a reasonable wage, potential “bosses” will be intimidated by my confidence and experience. So I have developed a three track strategy to keep my sanity:
1) I keep applying for jobs but don’t have high expectations. If only businesses would have the courtesy of issuing a reply. I can take rejection, it’s the “not knowing” that hurts. OK. I’m saying this NOW.
2) I am concentrating on my comfort zone. I have gone back to web site development and I am enjoying it. Seriously. One of the downsides to working your way up the ladder is the fact that you can get removed from that which initially interested you in a particular career. Now, I get to choose and it ain’t half-bad.
3) Writing. No more excuses. I now have the time. It’s a matter of divvying up the time but here goes!
With the above strategy working for me, life is not bad. I can keep my positive mental attitude and I am managing to keep my head above water.
Have you any advice that you would like to share? I’m all ears.
Oh, and if you are in need of any website development, give me a call please? Cheers!
