By Charlotte Harrington “Know what you want. Follow a trajectory where what you want is a possible outcome. Build a system to incrementally improve your ability to follow that trajectory. Trust yourself. Enjoy the outcomes. Repeat.” James Clear Back in 2014 I made the decision to leave the corporate world and join Belu. It was possibly the best career decision I’ve ever made for many reasons: I was disenchanted, certain decisions being justified as being right for shareholder value jarred with my personal values. I needed some balance – I had 3 kids under 5, working full time was no longer a viable option for my wellbeing and my family. I wanted to find more purpose for my life. I wanted to use my commercial skills to deliver positive change. Whilst I didn’t have a plan, it was more a feeling, I was lucky to be approached by Belu – a social enterprise, a business, not a charity, that was demonstrating there was a different way to do business and in doing so, helping to solve some of the world’s problems. As someone who is more comfortable delivering action than making promises with words, this had huge appeal.
