Today's topic is: It's not the jump you have to worry about; it's the landing.
This really rings true for me today as today was my last day at my current job. I have taken a big leap and decided to leave the big, comfy healthcare system that I work for to take on a larger role within a privately owned clinic. I have been really nervous about leaving my comfort zone, and it was even harder than I thought saying goodbye to my co-workers and the physicians that I have grown to know and love. Now that the hard part is over, my things are packed away in a box and the difficult goodbyes have been said, I realize that these were all just necessary steps to move on to a new challenge and prove myself in a completely different environment.
Now that I have made the jump, it's time to focus on the landing, which truly is the most important part. Though the jump may be difficult, all that really matters in the end is how you handle yourself throughout the process that ultimately leads to the landing. Sometimes the landing is rough, and sometimes it is smooth and easy. Here's hoping my jump will lead to a smooth and easy landing in my new position!
What are your thoughts on the idea "It's not the jump you have to worry about; it's the landing"? Do you agree or disagree?
