What are my work life options?
You may have more work life options than others depending upon your obligations and where you are on your career path. Many must maintain continuous employment with limited resources (time and money) to dedicate to other activities. Again, depending upon your circumstances, you may want to consider volunteering or continuing your education while maintaining your employment. These are great ways to increase your knowledge and network and position you for future opportunities. For others, it may be time to start a business or change careers. Your circumstances may position you to participate in worker retraining. Understand your work life options before embarking on the path with the least amount of anticipated anxiety. Change can be difficult but rarely is hard work not rewarding in one way or another.
