Who's in charge?


Hi! I’m Jeff Altman and I’m back with some more No B.S. Coaching Advice to help you with your life, help your career, help you to be happier.

Now most people make a life and career mistake by abdicating responsibility for their lives as they work, the decisions that relate to it to others. In their career, it’s most obvious by going through this process of passively waiting for promotions, passively waiting for employers to decide what’s right for you as the next step.

In point of fact, whether it’s in your career or your life, you’re the person in charge of it. You are the chief executive officer of your organization. You have shareholders which includes your family. Unfortunately since the IRS takes a piece of what you earn, the government is a shareholder, as well.

But, at the end of the day, you’re responsible for all the decisions that affect you, not your employer, not your family. You want to take your family into consideration, obviously, but, at the end of the day, you’re in charge. You’re the one with responsibility because, unfortunately, there comes a time where you figure out that your life does not go on forever. When you come to that point where do you want to be in your life? Do you want to have regret. Or do you want to rejoice for what you’ve done.

I’m Jeff Altman. I hope you found this helpful. My site is Hope you found this helpful. Have a great day.
