A clip from this longer presentation — Douglas E. Welch presents “Transition as the New Normal” to OPEN (Outstanding Professionals Employment Network) Ventura County in Simi Valley, CA on February 27, 2015.
Also mentioned in this talk is “Career Compass: Finding Your Career North”, an Amazon Kindle booklet
Transition — and this throws people off a little bit when I say this, but — transition is a force for goo din our lives and in our careers and many of us do not see it that way. We are fearful of it. It is the sabertooth cat outside the cave door. When I last gave this talk, off the top of my head I came up with a metaphor — “Don’t think of it as the sabertooth cat outside the cave door. Think about it as a domesticated cat keeping the rats out of your cave and sitting by your side and keeping you warm.” It is a good factor in our lives. It brings wonderful, new things, into our lives and our careers that we need to thrive as human beings. If you become too scared of it and avoid it at all costs, I think, personally, that you are limiting your lives.
