Career Growth: No-Fluff Advice to Accelerate Your Career with Pink Careers


In the episode, Richa Bansal, Mom, Wife, Author, Leader, and Founder of Pinkcareers, emphasizes the power of pause and its ability to facilitate reflection on one’s current work and its alignment with long-term career goals and aspirations. Richa highlights that a career is not limited to a short timeframe but rather spans a lifetime. It is crucial to consider whether the work being done on a day-to-day basis aligns with one’s future vision, even when they are 50 or 60 years old.


To effectively reflect on this alignment, Richa suggests intentionally creating pauses or “white spaces” in one’s calendar. These dedicated periods of time are free from appointments, meetings, or other obligations, allowing individuals to genuinely contemplate the work they are doing and whether it is propelling them towards their long-term career goals. Richa acknowledges that there may be some detours along the way, but it is essential to ensure that the work being done ultimately moves them in the desired direction.


By leveraging these intentional pauses and reflecting on the alignment of their current work with their long-term goals, individuals can make informed decisions about their career path. They can determine if any adjustments or changes need to be made to ensure that their work is in line with their aspirations. This reflection empowers individuals to take control of their career and make intentional choices that align with their desired future.
