Transcript:

On the left side the equation, this is the present and this is our future on this side. And let’s say Not Doing Now positive and Not Doing Now negative.

This is really important because this is your dream. This is your — this is where you’re headed. This is where you want to go. I want to live on a South Sea Island. I want to — I want to live on a South Sea Island and I want to run a tourist kayaking company on South Sea Island somewhere and that’s how I make my living. I live on the beach. I rent out kayaks. I take people on trips. Ok, maybe that’s what you want to do. Put it on the list. Put it up here. Put other things — I want to work with children more. I want to work in politics more. Whatever floats your boat. Get it down on the list. (unintelligible) I heard that. Get it on your list, because, again, that helps you move…in this direction. Helps you move towards north. Helps you stay on course.

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

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.

What Would You Like To Do? from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career [Audio] (0:54)

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

What Would You Like To Do? from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career

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:

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.

Time For Some Hard Thinking from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career [Audio] (1:04)

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:

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.
