Just As Soon As…

I often hear: “Chris, I’ll be looking for a change in X number of months, just as soon as …”

Just as soon as I hear about my raise. 

Just as soon as this project is over.

Just as soon as I can cross-train my replacement.

Just as soon as I get my new manager. 

Just as soon as this M&A takes place. 

I’m all for “Just as soon as” if there is a defined date set. 

Please don’t let that just as soon as roll from one to another to another and 4 years down the road you’re still unhappy. 

There is never the perfect time.

My suggestion: commit to yourself when your: “just as soon as” will become “I am now” and try not to let any new events impede that.

More career success awaits you…
