Applying Great Questions to Your Career

I read today that the great German philosopher Immanuel Kant said life’s three great questions are: What ought I do? What can I do? What can I hope for? As I thought more about these questions I realised how important they are in our relationship with work. The Career Explorer’s Journal is essentially about applying these three great questions to our individual careers. Our Values give us a firm foundation to explore the question ‘What ought I do?’ Our Talents help us bring the question ‘What can I do?’ to life Our Goals offer us a clear picture as we ask...

CareersBuzz Breaks Cover at UEL

The difference between advice and experience

Where advice is stale, experience is alive Where advice is indirect, experience is personal Where advice is inspired, experience is inspirational Where advice is one-size-fits-all, experience is unique.
