Finally, with the Career Compass, one of the things you need to do is revisit it regularly. Once a quarter. Once a month. At least every 6 months. Sit down — this is work for you. Working the Career Compass is work for you. This is something you are doing for yourself. Not for anybody else. And it’s deserved work. It’s important work that you need to do for yourself. Sit down and re-think the Compass. How have things changed? Maybe you’re in a better job now and you’re working more in these quadrants and you are like, “Hmm, where can I go from here? Now that I’ve got those desires” — what is the name of the guy who developed the scale of need? Once your need at one level gets — Maslow? — Maslow! Thank you! I knew it was an M but couldn’t think of the name. Once you get needs established at one level, you start reaching for the next level. So, that’s what you’re doing in your career. Once you get a little stability in a career you like, then you can start to set those “stretch goals” to use the buzzword — set those goals a little further out there. “Well, now I’ve got this. Maybe I — now I can fine tune this. I want to work over here and do more of this particularly more defined piece of work.” You can do that. But again, you’ve got to correct your course as you go on. Every 6 months, you’re there. You’re correcting your course. You’re making sure you’re still headed where you want to go.
