The North Catalyst

Your professional journey is your course through life. For some it’s a direct path, from point A to point B. For most others, it’s a myriad of avenues and turns, providing a variety of opportunities. You may follow a linear path or jump back and forth through different stages. Remember, any direction you move through is perfectly fine, as long as you’re moving in a direction that makes sense for you.


Our professional journey tracks with our life journey, with natural stages, or seasons. Our priorities, perspective, strategies and options have a lot to do with where we are in life. The career worldview of a 20-something is different than that of the 40-something. Experience brings learning. The degree of freedom we enjoy alters over time.

You will have some rich experiences during the course of your professional journey and at other times you will look up to a mentor or a guide to learn and adapt and to boost your knowledge base which will help shape your future. To continually progress you will need to keep track of your goals and make sure they’re front of mind.


Your next move may be through a promotion, returning to school to continue your education, a company or career change or even staying where you are until it’s time to retire.


Each one of us wants to make a difference with our work, progress in our career and grow and obviously find happiness along the way. It is therefore important to get a grasp of your career superhighway and take a regular stock of where you are now and what’s next.


We all aspire to reach the stars, and now its possible.
