All adults go through a period of evaluation every 7 to 10 years called a “turning point.” Despite the name, a turning point is not an isolated point in time – rather it is a one to three year period of evaluation, heightened awareness, and decision making that affects the next season of your life. Each turning point offers a great opportunity to evaluate, assess, and adjust your direction accordingly.
2:10 Consulting partners with clients in their turning points to provide objective information about their aptitudes, giftedness, and passions. It is difficult to navigate through these turning points alone because it is challenging to be objective enough to see our lives and giftedness with clarity. There is just no comparison to actually having to perform works samples to find out objectively what your aptitudes are.
Clients I see are often at these common turning points:
- Moving from high school to college
- Moving from college/graduate school to the work world
- The Age 30 Assessment
- The Midlife Assessment
- The Empty Nest Transition
- The 50s Assessment
- The Pre-Retirement Transition
The key to each turning point is approaching it positively and proactively through the development and implementation of a personal vision. A personal vision is a way to see and plan your future. The key is starting with objective information about yourself, and then thoughtfully and prayerfully integrating other important factors, such as your values, family, passions, skills, and work motivators, into a creative mix. This helps you create a powerful vision that is unique and personal to you. Researchers have found repeatedly that a personal vision based on real and objective information is the one factor most predictive of a person’s success and happiness.
