What do I do now? That’s the question people a lot of people are asking themselves. MBAs that just finished business school. Law students that just finished the bar exam. Friends and colleagues that finished their big project that kept them captive at work.
Often times, we encounter big taks and we have to go face to face with really hard work. And the harder the work the busier we all become. And I suspect that the trend never really ends. But every time there comes a point where it all comes to an end. Life has to go on. And we have to figure out what to do next.
In most cases that’s easy with a little advanced planning. That’s why most people plan trips after a big exam. Family vacations after your big project at work. Places you’ve always wanted to go if you decide to finally quit the job you’ve always wanted to quit.
But what happens when the work is harder than you thought? When time slips away? Then you find yourself asking, “now what.”
