Great Things Happen Where Interests Intersect from Two Challenges in Building Your Career [Video Clip] (1:15)

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

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:

You start to see collections of things and I’ll even even draw another little…how many of you, I’m sure you all have, remember Venn Diagrams. Right? Venn Diagrams. Intersections. Unions. Right? Well, guess what, if you take your interests in your life and you start drawing little bubbles, so we’ve got gardening here. We have, let’s say, New Media — this is podcasting, YouTube, Live streaming, all of that other stuff that I do. You have careers over here. You have writing and you have teaching here. You start drawing little bubbles and you start to see that there’s overlap between them. The thing that has amazed me over the last few years is how much my career work and my new media work has started to combine and that’s really going to become apparent in the next topic of this. Those issues between CareerCamp and me recording my talks and everything else have really started to mesh together and you can start to see, right here, that’s where those things are bumping up against each other and I can tell you, the greatest things happen in your life where these things touch. It is the friction of all the interests in your lives that really generate the magic in your life.

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:

So, I’m giving you a real quick overview of the Career Compass. I also have a little booklet I wrote on it. I’ve given talks on this that I can link up for Danielle, if you want any further thing on it. But the goal here is truly to bring out those issues that already exist in your life and career that, perhaps, you haven’t been paying attention to. When you start talking about it in generalities like gardening or music or whatever people seem to be more able and more willing to actually consider them a possibility. When you start talking about “I’m going to be a pop singer. I’m going to be a celebrity pop singer.” Well, you know that’s a lottery. Only this many people ever get to the level of a Lady Gaga or, a Justin Bieber. That’s not what it’s about. It’s about pursuing the interest in music. It’s about pursuing the interest in podcasting. It’s about pursing the interest in writing about whatever.

Transcript:

You cannot seek out your biggest desires if you have no idea what they are. So, I really want you to take that time and think about that. Now, why is this so important. The fact is, your career is yours. Hence the title of the talk “It’s Your Career, After All.” No one else has to live with your career day in and day out. Only you. Your spouse doesn’t live with it. Your children don’t live with it. Your family…not one else lies with your career except you. Imagine — and this probably doesn’t take a lot of imagination for most of us but imagine having a bad pair of shoes and being forced to wear those shoes every day and hating it. Well, then imagine what having a bad career feels like.

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?
