Are You Going Through a Major Life Transition?

If you are going through a major life transition, you are certainly not alone. Over the last few weeks, I have talked with almost a dozen people - friends, clients, colleagues - who are grappling with big changes involving career or personal life - in some cases, both. Thanks to a generous gift from an amazingly empathetic friend, I knew just what to tell them - read Transitions: Making Sense of Life's Changes, by William Bridges (25th Anniversary Edition). Bridges sets out a model of change encompassing endings, neutral zone, and beginnings. The book offers many useful insights and strategies. Importantly, it prompts the reader to pause to think more deeply about what the visible change is really about.
