Transcript:

That’s why I say you have to do some “hard thinking” yourself and we don’t always get that sign from above or below that says, “You should be doing this!” We have to think about it ourselves and My favorite thing to do is to take my notepad, go out in the garden, beverage of your choice — I’ll make no judgments there at all — and think for a little while. Away from the noise, the family and work and life in general and just start associating and thinking about these things. That’s why —  the form of the compass is just a way to help us think and bring up ideas and give us something to think about and give us a way to take kind of these free-floating thoughts and get them into something concrete that we can use.

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:

Does that make sense to people? Ok. If you were to sit down with this and draw this out — and I sort of would like you guys to at some point in your lives. I say you should revisit the compass about every 6 months really because life changes that frequently these days. 
You know you were going along happy go lucky and single living in a one bedroom apartment or a studio apartment having a good old time and then you meet someone you really, really like. Ok, that changes everything. When I met my wife in college — I met her my fall, the first night of my fall semester in college. I’d been there in the summer — for one quester in the summer — we met the first night of fall semester. My entire life changed. We have — we’ve not been apart since. We’ve been married 30 years in June and known each other for 32 beyond that at least.

Transcript:

…and while these are important to you, this one the danger zone. That’s the one — can I draw a skull and crossbones here — maybe? This is the quadrant you need to watch out for, but very important to think about. These are things you don’t like doing that you NEVER want to do. My lovely wife is here recording my talk today and she told me back when she was student teaching — we met in college — she came home from here student teaching — her first student teaching experience in an elementary school and was like “Oh my god, I can’t work, no, no, oh, I just want to mother all these children. I can’t be an authority figure. I can’t be a disciplinarian. I feel so sorry for them. I can’t work with young kids.” and she didn’t. She knew no, no, no, working with — no — “I need to work with high schoolers” and that’s what she did. She ended up working with high school kids over here. She discovered that.

Transcript:

Finally, the last quadrant down here. Things you are not doing today that you never want to do. I don’t think enough of us think about that one. I have a story. My wife, she started out as a teacher. We met in college. She was doing her first rotation of student teaching in the elementary classroom. She came home and said, ‘Oh my god, I cannot ever do elementary school teaching. I can’t discipline them. I just want to hug them I feel sorry for Tommy that’s being picked on by his sister and …” She ended up being a high-school teacher first because she immediately learned — seriously, that first week of student teaching — she knew right then. No. Not going to work in elementary school. Cannot do it.

The first day of the rest of your year from the Career Opportunities Archive

Career Opportunities Logo 2012

From the Career Opportunities Archives…

I am putting my series of Career Prescriptions on hold this week, in order to bring you this message about the New Year. This is your year. This is your time. This is your career, but it is up to you to make it happen.I know. I know. Yet one more thing you need to worry about and worry over, but that really isn’t the case. Building your career this year doesn’t require worry — only attention. It is not something to frightened you, it is something to be cultivated. Your career is not something that could come crashing down around your ears, it is something you are building upon, if you pay some small amount of attention to its care and feeding.

Transcript:

These are things you’re NOT doing today — Oh, I’m sorry — not ding today that you like doing. What would like to do? What would you like to try to make part of your career? You want to play music. Do you want to work with kids? You want to live on that South Sea Island and phone in your work via the WiFi. What do you want to do? Do you like travel? I like traveling for pleasure, but I hate traveling for work. And that was something I had to figure out early on in my corporate career, because they would want to send me and I was like “No.” If I go there and just visit. Glad to. Go there to work. You don’t see anything but the inside of the hotel and the inside of the office. It’s not that much fun. So traveling for work is not a big thing for me, but traveling in general — if I can travel for fun — I’m also an avid photographer — I love taking photos and travel is a great opportunity for that.

Transcript:

We’ve all met the burnt-out teacher, the burnt out bureaucrat. They hate their job and they make your life miserable because of that. Don’t be one of those people. I will say, you don’t have to be. it may take some time, but you can move in this direction, but don’t actively go out and seek out things down here. It’s self-defeating. Again, another perversity of human nature. We often do things against our own best interests and that’s one of them. Doing things that you don’t want to do.

Transcript:

Working through the compass requires some hard thinking. This is something I often on the readers of my career column, Career Opportunities, to do. They hate that word. I get that feedback from them.

“Oh oh, he said ‘hard thinking’ again.”

Because that’s often the most important thing you have to think about are those things that are difficult — that are hard to think about. What do you want? How do you balance life and career? How do you decide what you want to do? How do you decide, even whenever everyone else is telling you no, that you want to say Yes to something? Hard thinking.

Beyond that, most people don’t think at all. We talked about, I talked about earlier about the fact the people often just get pushed from job to job.

“Well, here’s a job, oh, I need a new job. Ooooh, that one’s available. Ok, I’ll take that. That one’s available. I’ll take that one.” You wander out here in the woods and wonder “how did I get out there? How did I get to where I am today?”

And that is exactly what will happen if you don’t do some hard thinking and some conscious thought about what you want to do.

Transcript:

Down here — this is time to get your grumbles out. These are all the things you’re doing today that you hate. I hate bureaucracy. I hate dealing with the government. I hate — whatever. I don’t like working with kids that much. That may be something for you. For me, I kind of get a kick out of it, but maybe you don’t like working with kids much or maybe you don’t like working with older adults that much or whatever your preferences might be. What are you doing today that you don’t really like? This is your chance to get them out and put them down here. The reason for that is that if you’re trying to set our course as I showed over here, where should you be heading in this equation. North, right? You want to go north. You want to not go south. What do I see people doing almost universally in their careers these days? Pbbbflt! They’re picking things down here  and actively pursuing things down here  that they don’t want to do. They don’t like doing.

Career Prescription #2: Start a Blog from the Career Opportunities Podcast

Career Opportunities Logo 2012

From the Career Opportunities Archives…

This week I continue my series of Career Prescriptions in hopes of moving you forward on some very important work that can help you to define and improve your career. Last week, I prescribed getting an account on LinkedIn. Today, I expect that there might be even a bit more push back when I tell you to start a blog, if you don’t have one already. If you already have a blog, start updating it more often.
