If you’re feeling stuck in your job or you don’t know what to do next, turn to Netflix and not just to chill.

Believe it or not, you might get some great inspiration from Netflix shows that inspire you to make that big career move.

On your next Netflix binge-watch, check out these shows.

1. The Queen’s Gambit

Nothing invigorates motivation more than a started-from-the-bottom coming of age story. Especially when it involves an enigmatic, young female chess prodigy portrayed by the formidable up and coming start Anya Taylor Joy.

The show, while fictitious, is written with real insight from chess experts. Chess is a game founded on strategy, and foresight — two essential traits that you’ll need when negotiating and making deft career moves. null

2. Inside Bill’s Brain

If there’s one brain you’d love to get inside, it’s probably Bill Gates, right? How much more inspirational can it get?

In ‘Inside Bill’s Brain,’ you’ll see the real Bill Gates. You’ll learn how he got so famous, how he thinks, and hopefully, take a tip or two that you can carry into your own life.

3. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

We’ve all had those days when we feel like we’ll never get the job we want or the promotion we’ve worked so hard for.

Rather than diving into a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, check out Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Kimmy is hilarious and unapologetically goes for her dreams. Maybe you’ll take a tip or two from her.

4. Girlboss

If you want to see a woman go from the ground up to major success, watch Girlboss.

The show follows Sophia Amoruso, founder of the Nasty Girl clothing brand, through her journey in starting her dream clothing company.

It wasn’t all sunshine and roses, but Girlboss makes it funny, relatable, and empowering for all the women out there who want to start a business but aren’t sure where to start.

5. The Mind Explained

Have you ever wondered what makes people tick? Whether it’s your boss who refuses to give you that promotion or your target audience who you can’t seem to read, The Mind will help you.

It’s a documentary on how the brain works, and while it sounds boring, it’s incredibly insightful. It may even help you in how you communicate with your co-workers, boss, or customers.

6. The Office

When you need a good laugh or just need to feel like someone understands your workplace woes, binge-watch The Office.

It gets funnier every time you watch it, so even if you’ve seen it before, watch it again. If nothing else, you’ll know what not to do in the office after watching this sitcom.

7. I Am Not Your Guru

While it’s a movie, not a show, everyone should watch ‘I am not your Guru,’ a movie about Tony Robbins. Tony studies human behavior and talks about it in ways no one else does.

You’ll walk away feeling inspired, empowered, and ready to help the world in ways you didn’t even know were possible.

Take some time for yourself and enjoy your Netflix binge. Don’t feel guilty. Who knows when the next show you watch could help you uplevel at your job or, better yet, start your own gig? After all, it is 2020, and crazier things have happened!
