Transcript:

Think about a standard compass, right? We’ll divide into 4. We’ll put North at the top, up here. South. Oh come on, Doug. I’m not writing with my non-dominant hand now. It should be better, right? There we go.

So I started with the compass and I said, “Ok. like a ship. Say you wanted to go somewhere and you wanted to go somewhere North, right.” If anyone has ever flown or been on or piloted a boat, you know that your course may be here, but you are never “on course” with a boat or an airplane, because you are always being pushed around, but the currents, waves, the winds, whatever. And so your path looks more like this. You’re always constantly correcting. So what I want you to do is I want you to find your true North. I want you to find the “North” that you’re headed towards. You may not be able to go directly there, but over time, you’ll adjust your course over time and keep heading in that way.

Transcript:

This eventually developed into what I call the Career Compass. This tool has helped me and I think it will help you and it might give you a way to help those around you. Because we often have a difficult time thinking about our own careers and out about own skills and out own benefits that we bring to the world. As was mentioned in the opening, you have to learn how to tell people what you bring to a job. We’re often the worst people to figure that out about ourselves because we don’t think what we do has value. It’s a perverse thing of human nature. It’s very hard for us to express what we think has value about ourselves. it’s one of those areas where it really helps to have someone else around you tell you that and/or help you bring it out yourself.

Transcript:

When you have that type of love for your work — and I’ll point to typical places where this arises, like teaching and other areas like that where you are dealing with children especially — if you develop that love, you will work harder. You will produce better. You will do great, great work because you have that little spark — that little extra spark. So one of the things that I have tried to do over the years is help people find that spark. And it started with me — me sitting down after a layoff particularly, going “What the heck do I really like to do and not do and all this stuff?” And then I had a friend some to me and he was in the midst of a transition and he was struggling it just struck me and I said, ‘Here’s what you want to do. Write down everything you do right now. Then write down everything you would want to do — that you enjoy doing and let’s work our way through it.”

Transcript:

When in transition, we often don’t know what the heck we want to do. Ok? And I often see people trapped in the situation of, the work they’ve been doing for 15, 20, 25 years never really was their favorite thing to do. It was presented to them at some point early on in their life — in their work career — and they simply kept doing it, but never really thought about “Do I actually enjoy doing this?” And there’s a reason for that. The old adage, you know, “well, it’s work. It shouldn’t be fun.” I don’t believe in that at all and here’s the simple reason about that. You can do — if your somewhat interested in your work, you can do good work. You might occasionally even do great work occasionally — every couple years. To me, you can never do your best work of you don’t have some other intrinsic interest in hat you’re doing. In some reward that you get from the work you do.

Transcript:

Another thing that we sometimes do in transition is that we start to turn all our attention externally. We start to worry about that resume and that CV and our interview skills. The fact is, yes, those are important. You cannot deny that. You have to interface with other people to get a job, right? I believe that there are plenty of people out there, plenty of people in this room who could help you with that stuff. That’s not what I focus on and I never have in my columns or anything else. I always focus on the personal — the person having the job. You! Read my columns and you will see the word “You” or “Me” more often than any other word in those columns and that’s just something I happened upon when I first started writing about careers — is I realized that’s where I found it important. That’s what I found important about careers — is helping people because there is so much focus on the external stuff — to give them some tools to bring it internally.
