Four Practices to Make the Right Career Decisions


Do you play football?

Me neither (shocker!).

But football can teach us a lot about how The Universe works.

Let me do my best to give you an analogy…

If the Quarterback can see where the receiver is running, they know where to throw the ball...

If you're running all over the place, The Universe isn’t gonna know where and when to throw you an opportunity.

When you try to do everything, you end up feeling scattered and dare I say it, overwhelmed? Suddenly, you start to question whether you should be in a creative field at all. And that’s not where we want you.

Sometimes, we think it’s The Universe doing the handoff when in fact, it’s actually your seemingly helpful friend from pilates class distracting you from what’s truly important. If you have trouble differentiating between the distraction and opportunity, here are four questions to ask yourself before making a decision:

  1. Do I have the time: Are you already overloaded with obligations? Would taking this opportunity impact your ability to make good on projects already in the works?

  2. Do I have the energy: This question was voted ‘most likely to be ignored’ by creative people everywhere. That is because we all think we’re not “allowed” to say no when opportunities present themselves. Additionally, we vastly overestimate our energy levels. Whenever you have the chance to act, ask yourself, “Will I be able to show up robust and present for this opportunity?”

  3. Is it in alignment? When you sit down and get quiet, what do you hear the Universe saying to you? Is this opportunity in alignment with what the Universe desires? {Pro-tip: The Universe usually responds in one of three ways: Yes, No, or Ask me later.}

  4. Can I afford it? Brass tacks: do you have the money required to take this opportunity or is it going to send you into a financial panic at some point? Be honest. {Pro-Tip: Be sure to look ahead to any costs that might be coming up.}

In case you missed this, Time, Energy, Alignment and Money = T.E.A.M.

...I dunno about you, but I wanna be on the same team as The Universe. 🎯🏆🥇

Always cheering you on,
