For those who know me, you know that I attended the University of Texas. I graduated with a degree in Business with an emphasis on Information Technology.

The majority of my courses in my junior and senior years were related to tech including programming, systems analysis and design and database fundamentals.

After I graduated, I worked for a small software development house for a minute.  I quickly realized it was not for me and moved into recruiting programmers and other technology technologists and technology leaders for the bulk of my career.

I would never claim to be a programmer. I could not code myself out of a paper bag. Yet…

I Know Enough

Recently,  we were having issues connecting to our server. I got my tech guru on the line, and he told me to type in ip/config/all at the command line.

My first thought was, “What the heck? Does he think I am Ada Lovelace?” (Video on Ada below).

Then I said to myself, “Wait. I know what he’s talking about. I know how to do that!”

I’m not a programmer but I knew enough to move the situation forward.

You Know Enough

This is what happens when you’re considering a career change…especially if it’s a significant change, like following your True Nature into a whole new role, industry or business.

At first it seems improbable that you could pursue a career that not only supports your lifestyle but is completely congruent with your True Nature – your gifts, skills, abilities, interests etc.

What I’m here to tell you is that whatever your big dream might be, you have enough knowledge and experience RIGHT NOW  to move yourself forward at least one step in the direction of Reconnecting your Career to your True Nature. And one step is all you need.

Do not doubt yourself.

You can solve the puzzle of reconnecting to your True Nature one line of code at a time.
