Having spent four years as a Career Counselor, Shareology often draws on a garden concept to clarify where people are in their lives. (A garden analogy? Are you surprised? Use the search box on the right to find the post on morning glories, Shareology Shares Gardening Glory.)
A cactus cannot bloom in the rain forest. An orchid cannot bloom in the desert. Each plant is elegant and perfect in itself, but it needs the right garden to bloom and grow. The same applies to people — are you in the right garden? Finding the right garden to bloom in makes all the difference.
One way to transition from your desert to your tropical rain forest is to begin with non-work activities, whether volunteer work, education or networking. This softens the transition, but ultimately? Finding the right garden to bloom in makes all the difference.
