That I’m not sure this job is the right one for me anymore
That I don’t know if this career path is the right one for me anymore
That I don’t have a key skill you assume I have - or I don’t have it to the extent you assume I have it.
That I don’t know how to manage you.
That my methods of dealing with department politics are failing me this month.
That I am questioning the validity of the assignments I’m getting.
That recognition is not given in ways that are meaningful to me.
That my friends/family think I’m in the wrong space.
That I’m not challenged. That I’m too challenged. That I’m bored. That I’m antsy. That I’m questioning myself.
Why should I do this? Why should I do this?
Even mentors ask these questions. None of us are alone. No questions are negative if you are willing to hear a difficult answer.
Questioning is good. Not questioning leads to no change.
