Facts To Remember Before You Set Out On A Travel
You may be a travel bug waiting to spread your wings and explore the world. You may also be forced to travel because your family or loved ones travel frequently. Either way, traveling is not just packing bags and leaving. It has a lot more implications on your life starting from relationships to career.
Plan your travels ahead and be prepared for the challenges
Frequent transfers come with issues
Moving frequently because of the transfer of spouse or another family member creates many challenges for you. You may lose your friends and making true friends on every transfer is difficult. Planning a good career is also tough, for your company may not be having branches in every city you go. Switching to new jobs every time can hamper the professional progress you aim to achieve. These issues can be controlled by maintaining contacts with your good friends and colleagues and taking up a career option giving you professional satisfaction, flexibility, and growth.
Hold the thread of your profession
It is equally important to maintain contacts with your colleagues and trainers even after quitting the job. This will help you to remain aware of the latest trends and opportunities in the field and can also help you in finding new jobs. The cordial relations you have with them can help you in the way of recommendations to new positions.
Contact friends when you travel
Keep in touch with your friends and family in your travel. This is necessary as long periods of silence and absence often tend to kill the warmth of relations. When you are far away, people on both sides will be unaware of each other’s life and will eventually become unconcerned with time.
Calling a long time friend or relative when you travel has its set of side-effects too. They may show too much concern for your safety and can try to interfere with your travel plans. Unnecessary poking can dampen your interest in contacting them again. Some of them may not be interested to know about your life and will be busy delivering their pieces of news. Unpleasant happenings can make your spirits low. Beware of friends who try to give you immature guidance on travel. If you give importance to them, chances are high that you get confused on what to do next and your plans may be hampered.
Always be cautious of the colleague you are contacting while on travel or after your relocation. Professional jealousy is something powerful enough to destroy your career and even life, contacting the wrong person can result in losing your job or dimming the prospects of getting a new job.
So while it is always good to catch up with a friend when you are away, it is always better to contact that person who is a genuine friend and keeps you positive regarding your life and journey.
