The title is not meant in the "sexual way", but more in how we look at our trusting relationships with others when we enter new environments.
I remember the Doctor Seuss book, Oh, The Places You'll Go! I received the book as a graduation gift from High School (no it was not an original issue, I'm not that old…). When you watch the above clip from the movie Friends with Benefits, there is a correlation between the two.
Dr. Seuss encourages the reader to go out and explore and experience new experiences. In the movie, Justin Timberlake's character has to make a decision to start his life over in new surroundings, or stay with the what is most comfortable for him. Those decisions are never easy…
We make decisions on a daily basis, some of which may require us to change a job, location, surroundings, etc. It's important though, when you make a change, no matter how large or small, that you have a proper support system. Those who you can rely upon for unfiltered advice and those who truly have your best interests in mind.
In the workplace you need to determine who your formal and informal mentors are. Remember, they don't all need to do the same job you do. Sometimes being buried in the weeds, will lead to unforeseen results. Establish a network outside of your workplace that you can bounce thoughts and ideas.
Take chances and remember that everyplace we go can be awfully lonely if we allow it to be so. Take a chance, make a change if you need to, and don't look back! It is cool to be part of something that is bigger than yourself and have fun doing it. You never know who you will impact in the process!
Have a great week!!
