Toulouse, France, January 2020;

It has been almost 2.5 years now, He said.

Yes, I know, I replied. Why do you keep on insisting that I move on? I continued.

Him: You know why. I know you better than you know yourself.

Me: Yes, it has been a painful break-up, and I still think about our time together.

Him: Yes, I know. Still, it’s time to break up with this one also.

Me: No, not again. It’s a painful process. I don’t want to go through this again.

Him: Your relationship is going nowhere, and I feel you are not as committed as before.

Me: Yes. I start to feel it again. The feeling of boredom. The motivation is going down.

Him: Exactly. So, let’s break up and move on.

Me: Hum, well, the uncertainty, the fear of not finding the right one. Are you sure that I am ready to go through that again?

Him: Yes, it’s time to put yourself in mobility and find a new job in Airbus!

That is the kind of conversion I have with the voice in my head every 2.5 years where I feel the need to change jobs.

I am lucky to have such a possibility in a big company like Airbus, where switching jobs is possible with all the challenges inherent to an internal job search.

Until recently, I was not conscious that I was not alone in the need to switch from one area to another. For me, it manifests mainly in my professional life and somehow in my personal life.

Then, I had a discussion recently with a friend and a colleague from Airbus, Laid Adda, who shared with me the T.E.D. talk below by Emilie Wapnick about Why Some of us Don’t Have One True Calling:

I have always been a multipotentialate, and we are legion.
