Introspect : The first step of ‘I RISE’, the 5-Step plan to Technical Readiness
“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” - Carl Jung
That’s right, the objective of this step is to awaken your professional self - think about what you were before your career break and where you want to go after it. Think about the work you used to do, the skills you built while at it, whether you liked doing it or not. A second career can be the change in professional direction you wanted, so think about what you would like to do going forward - what skills you would like to build and what you would like to spend the next 20 years of your life doing.
Diary, pen, you. That’s all this step needs.
