A mentor of mine reminded me how important it was to "shake" things up periodically. It loosened our creative juices, helped us gain a new perspective, and prepared us for change. Hence, my advice to you is: "Shake" things up at this new year time. Pick up an instrument. Make a new career friend. Take a hike or walk on the beach. Or, just take a "different" route to your destination. My mentor used to take a different route to work almost every day. This will help clear any cob webs you have. Then, see what rises to the surface for the next step that you will set for your career.
