    A member recently asked me whether she should defer her plans or forge ahead. Turns out that she's made significant strides in reskilling herself in a different area, and is hoping for an internal move into a very different role. A vacancy has just been posted and the opportunity is now.

    However at the same time she's going through a messy divorce and has a lot on her plate. All her energy is being consumed by dealing with the home situation along with juggling her current job demands. She feels great anxiety about taking on a new role which will need a lot of time whilst she settles in and becomes comfortable with the new position. Also the new position will require travel and her children are currently very unsettled.

    After talking through the advantages and disadvantages, she's decided that she's going to defer her plans by 6 months to enable her divorce to go through and for her to stabilize her home life. Once this major transition has been successfully navigated, she'll turn her energies to making her mark in a different role. That seems realistic and achievable for her, for now.
