Stay or Go?

Stuck in indecision?

It’s being termed ‘The Great Resignation’, we are calling it ‘The Great Rethink’. People are rethinking where, when, why or how they want to work and live. The overarching question of whether to ‘Stay or Go’ is on people’s minds now more than ever, whether that’s deciding to move to a different role or place, change careers, find better working conditions, or go from paid employment to stay-at-home parent or freelance, there have never been so many possibilities.

You know what they say, the more possibilities the greater the indecision. Mulling over the same points about why you should ‘stay or go’ is exhausting, frustrating, disheartening and sometimes downright infuriating because it gets you nowhere nearer coming to a decision that feels right for you.

Does any of this sound familiar:

  • Scrabbling for insight by scrolling through jobs and/or houses online, only to feel more disheartened?
  • Covid has compounded your dilemma and has you questioning what opportunities and challenges this new world presents.
  • Afraid you will choose the wrong path and forever regret it?
  • Restless for the right answer to suddenly materialise but waking up every morning on repeat?
  • Starting to feel anxious that time is ticking on, if only you knew, you’d do everything and anything to make it happen if you did…

Periodically dipping in and out of thinking about life-changing decisions that stir up so many emotions on our own or with someone who has a vested interest in our decision, doesn’t lead to breakthrough moments of clarity.

What impact is your indecision having on your relationships, career, quality of life and finances?

The consequences of not deciding on whether to ‘stay or go have a trickle-down effect, in particular, it affects the other decisions you make.

Some of the consequences of putting off deciding if you should stay or go:

  • impacts career; decide not to go for promotions or find a different job/career etc.
  • impacts love life; decide not to seriously date or give the impression that you don’t want to fully commit
  • impacts important relationships; for example parents, partners, kids, and friends feel like they are living in limbo
  • impacts finances; deciding to live in the now and putting off buying or doing up a home can affect your buying power
  • impacts happiness and well-being; uncertainty carries with it uncomfortable feelings, thoughts and emotions
  • impacts self-confidence; always feeling something is wanting/missing, sense of identity and self-assuredness compromised
  • impacts your future self; put off making long-term plans, volunteering etc.


Making an informed decision gives you the headspace and energy to improve your overall quality of life.

How long does each of the on-demand training modules take?

Each of the six modules takes an average of one to two hours to complete.

You will be given a link to book your coaching at a time that suits you within the 12-week program. Starting your one-to-one coaching mid-way through the program rather than at the beginning is advised.
