"5 Ways to Recalculate Your Career Right Now"

Recalculation is not a phase; it’s a mindset. Or, in more common parlance, it’s not a bug; it’s a feature

Recalculating isn’t just a singular action at a particular moment in time, like deciding whether to turn right or left at a crossroads. Rather, the most successful and happy professionals described themselves as frequent and deliberate recalculators. Some of their recalculations were big and bold; others were small and nuanced. But they treated recalculation as a vital skill in their professional toolkits—one that they applied over and over again to help guide them to success in the good times and the challenging ones.

When Covid-19 first emerged each and every one of us was thrown unexpectedly into career transition because of the pandemic, lockdowns and economic fallout. Even if the pandemic did not lead you to a major life transition, you’ve likely spend the past year making readjustments and pivots to keep up with the rapid pace of change in the world today. As you consider your own recalculations in 2021 and beyond, here are five rules of the road to guide you:

  1. Embrace creativity
  2. Prioritize action
  3. Control what you can
  4. Know your non-negotiables
  5. Ask for help

We are all recalculators now.
