I’ve been reading some material recently on the idea of re/entry after a major life transition.  I like the concept of re/entry because it lends itself to a deliberate, focused process.  It reminds us that sometimes we need to go slow to fully acclimate ourselves. 

Often, we want to rush. Rush into a new job.  A new project.  A new relationship.  Rushing may enable us to miss key information or risks.  

Give yourself permission to walk, not run through the process.
