The Pivot Point, Career Change in Time of Uncertainty

The world around us is changing at the highest rate as ever. The technology increased the pace of our lives and as people working in the tech industry, we feel this even more than others. We constantly have to learn, keep up with new technologies, frameworks, programming languages, libraries, and many other things, even emojis.

We are all running to keep with all these changes and most of us, at some point in time, will get tired and bored with our jobs. We just need something different, something new. Something to push further the point we are. We end up talking to recruiters and looking for the next star position in a start company. We look for an upgrade, a change, and something different. We keep asking ourselves “what’s next?”

If you ever felt this way, or you are feeling this way now, I am telling you that you reach your pivot point.

Most of us when we reach the pivot point we rely on our passion. What do we like to do? What does excite us the most? But, should the passion drive us? Or should we drive our passion?
