“Sometimes, during the day, I feel like I am lost,” Miriam lamented.
“How so?” I asked
“Things just seem off-balance. I don’t know if it’s the circumstance we are in, with all the changes, or if it’s me?”
“It’s easy to see the circumstances that have changed. And, part of it is you,” I nodded.
“So, it is me?”
I continued to nod, “Yep. Think about the moment you feel off-kilter, what happens?”
“I am just about to do something, out of instinct, then I have to second-guess, is this what I should really be doing, right now?”
“So, you have a habit that is breaking, at least in question?”
It was Miriam’s turn to nod. “And, breaking a habit feels off-balance. Habits are supposed to help me take consistent action. And, now I am not so sure the next action is right?”
“Miriam, it’s normal, welcome to the world of professional growth.”
