Don’t Be Afraid. Just Do It! from Using the Career Compass To Find Your Work and Career [Audio] (1:03)

Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career with Douglas E. Welch 

Don't Be Afraid. Just Do It! from Using the Career Compass To Find Your Career

Listen to this clip

 

Read the book


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:

Yes. it can be scary. I do want to address that. It can be frightening. It can be a little off-putting. “What do I have to write? How do I…? Oh, I’m not that good of a writer.” You know what? You get better. I started off writing the column when I had never written anything but college papers and everything I had ran through my wife who’s an English teacher and it would come back all redlined at the time and every column I got a little bit better and those chronic problems that she corrected every single column, every single week, started to disappear. My commas got better. My possessive’s got better. Anybody can get there and I will say even if the quality of what you’re sharing — how it’s presented — how it’s shot on video — how it’s written — is a little bit less than perfect — and we’ll all think our stuff is less than perfect — it’s just human nature — if it’s good information, people will forgive a lot. People will forgive crappy video if the message inside that video is good and important to them.

Transcript:

In my own career…the struggles I’ve had in my career and the struggles I have heard because I write about careers, it has really driven home to me how important it is to talk about these things, to think about these things to utilize tools like we have today that have never existed before in our history. To get out the word about what we know — what we do and how well we do it. To me, I’ll even say it this way — and it sounds a little rough, but — you’re foolish if you are not using these free tools that you are given. It is like not using the telephone back in the day. Ok? These are tools that are free — cheap or free — for you that you can use to make your life and your career better. If you’re not using them, you’re foolish. Don’t do that.

Transcript:

I’ve seen too many people over the years be trapped in jobs that were — from their description to me — definitely mentally abusing jobs and, in some cases, even physically abusing jobs and they still wouldn’t leave. No matter what I said. “I can’t leave. I can’t leave.” and that, to me, is one of the saddest things I have ever heard from someone. It led to me, thinking of my own mind, “If you say you are trapped, you are. ” If you feel that you are trapped, that is the first major, biggest sign that you need to get out and change. Ok?

The Magic of Not Giving a F*** | Sarah Knight | TEDxCoconutGrove [Video]

September 29th, 2017 Comments off

So much to say “YES” to in this talk and something that I have been trying to do in my own life over the last several years. — Douglas

The Magic of Not Giving a F*** | Sarah Knight | TEDxCoconutGrove

The Magic of Not Giving a F*** | Sarah Knight | TEDxCoconutGrove [Video]

Warning: Strong Language

The bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck and Get Your Sh*t Together, Sarah Knight, outlines her “NotSorry Method” to stop spending time you don’t have doing things you don’t want to do in her humorous talk.

After fifteen years working in New York City’s top publishing houses,Sarah Knight struck out on her own. Since then, her essay “I Quit My JobToday (And So Can You!)”- went viral, and her book, “The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck: How to Stop Spending Time You Don’t Have with People You Don’t Like Doing Things You Don’t Want to Do“, became a bestseller. The escape from corporate life and transformation into an “accidental anti-guru” continued when she and her husband moved to Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic. Sarah’s new book explains how to “Get Your Shit Together: How to Stop Worrying About What You Should Do So You Can Finish What You Need to Do and Start Doing What You Want to Do.” Sarah graduated cum laude with a degree in English and American Literature from Harvard University.
