Be careful when someone says they’re looking for opportunities. It all depends what an opportunity means to them. To me – it means getting out of my comfort zone, potentially trying something new that I haven’t done before that allows me to grow both in my career and as a person.

When I speak to people that are looking for a new opportunity (yes, I am expanding my team in Calgary currently), I’m naively using that as a starting point. But, as with most assumptions I tended to embrace in the past, I was proven wrong. People looking for opportunities are usually looking for doing the same thing they have done before. I think a career is more than a circus act where you get to perform the same trick over and over again. Then again, I get bored easily and like throwing myself out of my comfort zone.

Quite literally I left my European comfort zone behind to start a new life in Canada – just over seven years ago. While it hasn’t been easy, it’s true that everything you want in life is usually right outside your comfort zone. You might have to stretch a bit to get to where you really want to be.

As a dear friend so delicately described it, I have undergone a “few” lifestyle changes since coming to Canada. But it has all been worth it. I’m writing this post on a Monday morning while having lunch at one of the ski resorts I frequently go to. Not bad for a Monday morning. Turns out those Monday mornings are fine, it’s your life that sucks.

Ready for change? Do something good for yourself. Join a course, write a book, or (if you’re in Calgary) apply to join my team while the opportunity is right in front of you.
