The Netherlands are going on vacation.
For a lot of people the vacation is a fixed point to take a look at their careers. What do I want? How come some things at work aren’t going as planned? The physical distance, a different environment, the relaxed atmosphere and the absence of work-related disturbances make it easier to reflect. Because of the clear analysis, you can return to the Netherlands a few weeks later with a fresh view of your work and full of new ideas.

Unfortunately reality shows that, once back in your own country, it’s hard to keep up the fresh view you had during the vacation. Within a couple of days you’re right back where you started. It seems to be really difficult to put ideas into practice. And action is the key to resolving problems at work or getting your career going in another direction. Especially when it concerns a large change.

This is why I wish you all a nice and safe vacation. But even more so, an active and energetic start when you come back! Just do it…
