Transcript:

There are those that manage their career at every step. Every time they evaluate a job or opportunity or an interview they look at that and say, “How does that fit with what I want to achieve in my life?” There’s the other side, which many of us I am sure know and in some cases I have been this person, who have simply let their career happen to them. They take the first job that offered. Whether it has any interest to them at all. When it has any direction to where they want to go in their lives or their career. It’s simply they take one job, then the next, and the next, and the next, and they wake up 20 years later and go, “How did i get here?” Because they had no plan. Because they weren’t watching where they were going. They weren’t setting their course. Someone else set their course for them and I will tell you, that if you don’t manage your own career, there are more than enough people who will gladly manage it for you. They will say, “You need to go work over there and you need to work over here” and you’re going to wake up in 20 years and wonder, “How did I get here? How did I get from there to here?” You’ll have no idea, because it has simply been a case of taking whatever presented itself along the way.
