What would you change about the companies where you’ve worked, if you could wave a magic wand? Would you root out a toxic culture? Eliminate a glass ceiling? Seek a fairer pay scale? Confront ageism, sexism, racism, or any other –ism that holds back talented people and protects the status quo?
As you consider your own Fresh Start Success, seize the opportunity to be the change you want to see happen. Maybe you can’t go back and fix the problems at your former company, but you can fix the little corner of the universe under your control. Whether you build a company that is just one person or one hundred people, refuse to accept “same old, same old” as the default. It’s your life, your reinvention—your power to make a difference.
If your reinvention takes you into another organization, look for ways you can bring about positive changes. Even shifts that may seem small to you might make a world of difference to those around you.
