Sometimes, it�s hard to switch jobs, especially when you are older but flexibility is key to charting a new course.
LAST week, I held a contest on my Facebook page and the winner was allowed to suggest three possible topics for this week�s column. Wong Yoke Wah, a reader from Kuala Lumpur, emerged as the eventual winner after answering three simple questions correctly. Her topic appealed to me most: �Is it possible to change your job/career when you are in your 40s?�
You see, changing jobs is something that I�ve become quite adept at over the years � mostly as a result of circumstances. Although I trained as a journalist after leaving school and have been writing this column for 15 years now, I haven�t always been employed as a writer. In fact, there was a period of 12 years when I wasn�t employed at all. And, this was not by choice.
The only constant is change!We are changing physically everyday but our behaviour and attidue seem to lack behind for the better.I know I am getting older and therefore I must embrace the change.More than ten years ago my only exercise is a walk at KLCC garden once a week;but about three years ago I walk and cycle 3 times a week.Similarly in my business life..Just to add to this article by my favourite columnist,"Don't be afraid to change even when you are in your 50s".I did.
