We all have a Career Compass from Career Compass: Finding Your Career North with Douglas E. Welch
A short clip from this longer presentation
So I’d ask you to imagine that you had a magical compass. Your had a compass that would lead you through your life and show you exactly where you should be going. Like Jack Sparrow’s magic compass in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, it would tell you exactly where you wanted to go to what you most desired. The fact is, you already have this magical compass. We all have it inside of ourselves. It’s our desires. It’s our wants, our needs and our desires. We instinctively know oftentimes what we want. The problem arises when we start to ignore those things and do things that go exactly due south of where we want to be headed in our lives. We have all done it. I’ve done it myself. Everyone of my friends has done it. We’ll be going along and working in this direction when all of a sudden a job will appear and we’ll say, “Well, it’s a job. It pays. I’ll do that job for a while,” without every realizing it is nowhere in our desires to actually do that job. Perhaps it’s work we don’t want to do. Perhaps it is a business we don’t want to be in.
