Cold Weather Gardening, Anyone?

My older son, Ryan Levan, Levan Legal LLC, has been visiting and remotely lawyering at my house. One day, I discovered that neither of us had any external-facing work obligations for 60 minutes.

Instead of spending time doing “other work” responsibilities, we pivoted and decided to work on the garden in the back of my house.

A perfect wellness formula.

A little nature, some fresh air, and a catch-up on how our lives have been moving forward. A perfect wellness formula! And I have been finding myself extremely productive as the day progresses.

When I think about work-life integration and wellness, I consider whether we are satisfied and growing as we want to in our current positions. If we are not, time away from work doesn’t usually solve the discontent.

It might be time for a pivot.

Rather, it might be time for a pivot – not to the garden but to a similar and more promising position or to something much different that would better match your values, strengths, and career goals.

Pivoting is one of my areas of expertise.

In either case, I am here to help as pivoting is one of my areas of expertise – (having done it myself and helped numerous others) .

Whether you need a resume redo, a networking and job search strategy, interview prep or practice negotiating to get what you want/need from this new spot.

Or if you need guidance to figure out what you really want to do next.

Feel free to reach out – I am simply an email, gail@gailcummings.com or phone call, 215.260.4881, away.

If you know of anyone who might benefit from my guidance and coaching, please pass this email along.

Wishing you a welcoming Winter,

I recently went to a concert of one of my favorite musicians: Keith Urban. At age 54, with more than 30 years in the music industry, he rocked a sold-out 25,000-person outdoor venue for 2+ hours on a Sunday evening in 90-degree heat. What an inspiration!
