Hard Work and Transition from Transition is the New Normal 2016 with Douglas E. Welch

 

Transcript:

I’m right there with you. I am one of the worst. I have a pessimistic leaning personality rather than an optimistic leaning. So it’s very easy for me to go down that hill, but I’ve learned over the years to tell myself and just stop and say, “You know what? No. Look at everything you’ve done in the past. There is something new coming.” You’re going to have to find it. You’re going to have to work hard to find it. it’s not, also, that things are simply presented to you. Whether you’re working in a job or whether you’re unemployed or whether you’re seeking a job, you still have to work hard at it and I think that’s true of life in general. When you’re raising a child everyday you’ve got to work hard at it. It never really gets easier and I think that’s a good corollary to life in general. There’s always new challenges. And you’ll hav a good day and you’ll have a bad day, but it’s always a challenge. And you have to work very hard at it. Some thing goes for your career. Same thing goes for your whole life.

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:

For me, careers are as an important part of your life as any other aspect of your life. You often spend more time at your work. Imagine working for a startup these days. The startup is your life. I pity the poor families who have a startup entrepreneur in their family because you never see them for years at a time. It is so important and I don’t think, in most cases, we take the care of thinking about our careers the way that we would about family, our children, our spouse or anything else. We kind of get, we kind of let it get sloughed off to the side and let it kind of do what it does.

Transcript:

If you got this job, you can get another. Too many of us get tied up in the fact that “that’s the only job I’ll ever have and the only job I can ever get, I’m not qualified for anything else I can’t do anything else” and we get panicked about that. No, the very proof of your job history shows that you have an on-going employability down the road. That helps. Sometimes you’re looking for something to hold on to. We get — self-doubt creeps in and fear creeps in and everything else. And I want to tell you, if you got that job, you can get another. You have skills. Don’t let it beat you down. Don’t lt it convince you that you have no skills or you’re not employable or whatever. It’s simply wrongheaded and it’s one of those things that our brains do to ourselves. When that doubt creeps in — which is another thing that is totally tied up with transition — that doubt creeps in and boy.

Transcript:

It’s very important for you — and the people you deal with later in your careers — think about what you want out of a career. Too often, we simply do things our career by rote. We take this job because it’s offered. We take the next job, because it’s offered and we just get kind of pushed from one job to another and you wake up 20 years later and go, “What the heck was I thinking? How did I end up…?” There’s an old joke about shaving a yak. How did you start here and end up shaving a yak at the end of your day? Because you’re not paying attention. You’re letting life push you around.

Transcript:

The important fact I want to tell you is, while transition is normal, that struggle that you feel with it at times will ease. As you become more adept at dealing with transition you’ll simply get better at it. Part of it is that acceptance. To me, that acceptance part of transition is one of the first things you’ve got to get over. It is just something that happens and I’ve got to deal with it, but then you’ll actually get used to it and you’ll learn how to use it to your advantage. It also means that transition can make us feel like we’re out of control. Something else is controlling — “Our company laid us off, therefore they control my life.” Well, no. They control that one small aspect of your life.

Transcript:

I’ve have given and talked about his topic — these two topics actually tonight – quite a few times. I have been working, started out in high-tech, became a freelancer, eventually moved into new media and podcasting — all that time writing about careers amongst a bunch of other things and everything kind of dovetailed for me as I freelanced. My career work started to dovetail with my podcasting work. It started to dovetail with my new media work and so on an so forth. I sort of generated this career out of a verity of interests that I had and that is not the normal way most people develop careers. Normally, you have that typical — we think — that typical stair step– I’ll get this job and I’ll get the next job and I’ll get the next job and what I quickly found out for myself — and for a lot of people like me — that really isn’t normal, especially in this day and age — in the 21st Century it’s very, very abnormal to actually have a career like that. Even within corporate bodies now, corporate bodies are flattening. They’re changing their makeup. You have someone like Zappos who simply said we’re not going to have management and 18% of their staff left, because they could not deal with the concept of not having a traditional management structure. That’s the world we’re going into.
