The Hanged Man: Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now?

So. I’ve been asked to consider working in another position at my workplace. It’s not a promotion or demotion more a sideways crawl. The powers that be think it’s important to improve my overall professionalism whereas I’m more of a stay-in-the-job-you-love-kinda-gal. Still, I’m torn. They say ‘it’s better the devil you know’ but I’m not 100% convinced of that. Sure I’m all comfy where I am and anything new is scary but every time I’ve been asked to move before I’ve actually ended up enjoying the change. However I’ve no way of knowing if I’ll feel the same way this time around. It’s just so tootin’ hard to know if you’ll like a job before you try it. And once I move I’m locked in for a year or two. What to do? What to do? What to do?

This classic career conundrum – should I stay or should I go now? – is very much in the realm of The Hanged Man card. We all experience this sooner or later in our jobs whether it’s a nod from the boss or ennui setting in suggesting it’s time to make a move. And when you really don’t know which way to jump there’s nothing you can do but sit on the situation and hope for a sign to show the way. Which in my case may be a tap on the shoulder, lol.

Anyone else out there in the same boat?

  1. Don’t you hate that. I guess we both have to hang in there – boom boom! (sorry, couldn’t resist) – and wait for something to shift one way or another. The problem of course is you can be stuck in career limbo for ages.
