Last Tuesday’s event at the Hub Westminster was the second event we’ve run with London-based organisational psychologist¬†Rob Archer, who specialises in helping people escape career paralysis. We had almost 100 Escape members in the room, listening to Rob’s stories about how to get unstuck.¬†

You can read more from Rob Archer on his blog here. The key points that we took out of this event were that:

  • Your career decision criteria should be constructed around things that you WANT, not things that you don’t want. Run towards something, not away.
  • Listen to your intuition. Beware that your rational mind will try to discount what can be great choices.
  • Your mind is not your friend. It is not your enemy, but it is not your friend. It does not know what’s always best.

The slides explain it better – they are available here:
