John Robinson, Founder of Backup CEO on The MECE Muse Unplugged

What happens when an individual stays in a job, career, or with a company that may not be fulfilling, but they are addicted to the influence, credibility, and prestige that being associated with a particular company or role provides? 

Or...sometimes people stay stagnant based on sunk costs (i.e., “I’ve already spent so many years doing X or working at X, it would be a big risk to do something different or take too much time to build back up.”) 

Many individuals hold onto name brands, titles, or “logos” instead of seeking a career path that is truly meaningful to them or working at a company that aligns with their personal values. 

Fear of the unknown keeps them stuck, guilt keeps them feeling shameful. It’s a vicious, paralyzing cycle. And it's rarely discussed. 

How can you detach from the titles or logos and focus on what really matters for your life? Set yourself free. 

Life is not a dress rehearsal...this is it. 

You have one shot with an unknown end date. 

While it might be scary to let go, sometimes it takes a life detox to unlock your potential and find your true journey to greatness. 

John Robinson, Founder of BackUp CEO, a CEO leadership coaching service, weighs in and shares his own personal experiences in episode 7 of The MECE Muse Unplugged podcast show.
