The paths of our lives rarely play out in a straight line.
It only follows that our careers will also twist and turn, soar one way, and then come back another.
I recently met with a client who had spent a huge amount of time and effort on creating a specific program that he thought would take him in a new direction with his career. He was concerned because it seemed to lead to a dead end. I nudged him to consider that all the effort was not lost, and he may very well find himself coming back around to it in the months or even years to come.
