Happy Independence week! In 1776, America made a big decision that changed history. In this episode, Nicole and Jon covered how to think through making big changes that will influence your personal history. Along the way they talked about:
  • The risks and perceived risks that come with making big career changes.
  • Is there anyway to know if you are truly "ready" to take a leap?
  • Emotionally dealing with leaving a team behind and why we are all a little less important than we think.
  • Thinking about your day-to-day now as prep for the future
The best we advice we have is to trust yourself to make a hard call if you've put in the work. Talk to people you trust around you. Get some feedback. Build your savings account if needed. But at the end of the day, making a big change is an emotional decision that's on you.
Taking a big leap can be scary. Drew Hudson, co-founder of Dropbox, says he considers which path to take based on what will lead to obtaining the most knowledge or is the most interesting to him. We like this way of thinking because it can lead to taking on work that you haven't done before but have always wanted to try.
