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.
