Career Compass - Do Something You Want to Do from Two Challenges in Building the Career You Deserve  [Video Clip] (1:22)

 

Douglas E. Welch (http://douglasewelch.com) presents to the class Career Development – Theories and Techniques at Pepperdine Graduate School of Education & Psychology taught by fellow CareerCamp Co-Chair, Danielle Gruen

The two biggest challenges are deciding what you want to do as a career and then building the career you deserve once you decide.

I discuss the Career Compass method of discovering your career wants, needs and desires and then using various social media tools to show people “What you do and how well you do it”

Transcript:

Finally, up here, things that you’re not doing now that you want to be doing. I know so many people who would love to be making music, especially here in Los Angeles. I play guitar a little bit. I sing. I have a theater degree, if you can actually believe that. My Bachelor’s Degree is in theater. So many people would love to do music, but yet don’t find a way to make it happen. Even something as simple as sitting around with friends. I get great enjoyment out of that. We often have parties where we sit around the backyard and play songs and play along with each other. Do all sorts of things. Go out and see music whatever. There’s people who that like — they may even like gardening but they don’t do it. They have a balcony and that’s it. Well. Get a pot. Get a pot. Put a plant in it and grow it. Grow some tomatoes. Grow some lettuce. Do whatever makes you happy and this quadrant, I think, is one of the most important ones, because it illuminates those things that, perhaps, you haven’t really thought about. You haven’t really thought them possible and so you’ve just sort of ignore them. And again, the Compass helps you bring those topics out and say “Oh, yeah, I hadn’t really thought about that. I hadn’t really thought about going hiking. We have trails all around us here in the Los Angeles area, maybe I should just go out and hike one of the trails for a while.” What’s it going to hurt, right?

Transcript:

I’ve had people come to me and say, “Someone offered me a job but it’s in an entirely different area of work and I don’t know if i should…” They get all totally confused about it until I say to them, “I’m n ot asking you to take the job. Just think about it. Just think about it. Just go talk to the people. Go have an interview.Go out to coffee with them.” You’re not committing to anything. You’re just exploring your opportunities. And that’s another phrase that’s going to come up as we work through this today. People think that merely by letting themselves think about an idea, they have somehow committed to it. Don’t do that. It’s not about that. It’s about you learning about yourself and what you really want out of your life and career.

Transcript:

We can all get trapped in our own little worldview — our own little bubble – sometimes, but if we don’t purposefully make an attempt to reach out and change it or see it in a different way, we just continue in that fashion. It happens to all of us. It happens to me. It happens to everyone I know. the point is use some tool like this to help you broaden your thinking a little bit to hopefully allow you to see where things have perhaps gone a little bit wrong. Now for the other quadrants of the compass, down here are the things you are not doing that you never want to do. So, actually, the elementary school would probably be over here with my wife instead of that quadrant. These are things you never want to do. Never want to work in a bank. I never want to work for a real estate company. I never want to — I never want to be a doctor or a nurse. Sorry, no, I can barely deal with doctoring myself when I cut my finger. I could never imagine taking care of someone else in that fashion, It’s just not in my mental make up. Other people are like “Oh yeah! Please. Medical? Love it! Yes.” My son’s girlfriend is in the medical focus program in high school for goodness sakes. So, some people might put that there, but other people might put it down here and say “I never. No. That’s just. No. Unless something dramatically changes in my makeup, I don’t even want to go there.”

Transcript:

You can’t possibly seek out your biggest, wants, needs and desires if you don’t know what they are. Ok? You have to know these things and it can be difficult and frustrating and worrisome because you can wake up one morning and go, ” You know what? I really don’t like doing this type of work.– For this reason and this reason. But you know maybe there is something different.” That can be a little troubling, because it’s like ” Well, I’ve invested all this time and energy and whatever into this particular avenue.” You don’t have to change overnight, but what I do counsel you to do is try it. At least think about it.

So again, things you like doing that you’re doing now. Things that you don’t like that you’re doing now. As you might imagine, if north is the most positive, this is the area we want to go in. But where do I see so many people going in their careers. They take jobs, or they use that “next available job” thing and they start doing jobs that are not in their interest at all. They don’t like doing the work. They don’t like what the work accomplishes. They don’t like the topic. They don’t like the…whatever, but they end up being forced in this direction, but they don’t see it. I have sat at meals with people and just listened to the direst descriptions of their work life and I have to explain that, “You know, you’re kind of doing it to yourself here.” Can you find something that’s more, more in this area?” But they haven’t really thought of it that way.

Listen to this clip

 

Douglas E. Welch (http://douglasewelch.com) presents to the class Career Development – Theories and Techniques at Pepperdine Graduate School of Education & Psychology taught by fellow CareerCamp Co-Chair, Danielle Gruen

Transcript:

Most importantly, learning more about yourself — learning more about the internals — will guarantee-ably effect the externals. The more you know about yourself, the better you can present yourself. The more you know about yourself, the better job positions you can focus on that interest you most. The know you more (laugh) the more you know about yourself, the more  you can tell others about yourself. So, I can guarantee you, as is often said in creativity courses and everything, engaging in creativity in one aspect of your life will guarantee-ably effect your entire life. You’ll find that you may be painting in the evenings here, but all of a sudden you’ll start having better ideas at work. No matter what your work is, because you’re learning about a frame of mind — that creative frame of mind — that questioning, that thinking part of your mind and it will just spread to other parts of your life. I guarantee it.
