A / La Salle A
You found a profession that you love. Maybe love is too strong for you, maybe you just enjoy it. You’ve learned, you’ve grown, you’ve arrived. And then, CHANGE.
You get a new boss, and they don’t like the way things are done. Or you find out from a peer that the best practices have changed in light of new regulations. Perhaps a global pandemic suddenly changes the way the world works. What do you do? First and foremost, as recommended by the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, DON’T PANIC.
As humans, we’re wired to have a fear of uncertainty. So when we’re doing what we love and we’re comfortable, it sometimes takes too long to notice when we’re not loving it as much anymore.
When I found Information Architecture, I knew I’d found the right fit for me. But it’s taken a lot of resilience, self-learning and willingness to change to be able to go from “Entry level” to “Seasoned Professional”. Join me to learn how.
