Why you should try to find your career north? from from Career Compass with Douglas E. Welch
A short clip from this longer presentation
When we’re following our desire, in the terms of the Career Compass, we are headed due north. Now, typically, when you’re on a ship and you’re navigating somewhere, you might want to go any of the directions, but I use North as the point where we all want to be. If we’re going against our own better interest — our own desires, our own wants, our own needs — we’re headed due south. I am going to draw a little compass on the board a little bit later that will illustrate this and give you some ideas of how to figure out where you are on the compass.
People sometimes ask me, “Why should I chart my own course? Why don’t I just go into business, do what everybody else does and go into the same job that everyone else has and so on and so forth?” The fact is, we’re all unique individuals. Look around this room. Just by our shear looks, we look different. We are unique even more so in our thinking and our attitude and our actions. Why wouldn’t we all have different desires of what we want out of our career? It only makes sense.
