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
You want to see your transition as opportunity to research and look at new and different outlooks on your life and your career. It’s very important that you pay attention — deep attention — to the world around you. it can feel, sometimes, like we’re walking through a bit of a haze. “I just got to get through this process, I’ll go to OPEN, and I’ll do this and I’ll fill out the forms” and we just kind of “zombie walk” through the process.
