“There is no hierarchy when it comes to your career.”

I enjoyed reading Think and Grow Rich but found it a little too hierarchical. Of course there’s a huge amount to learn from great careers but when I listened, really listened, all those exceptional career voices seemed to be saying the same thing… “We haven’t done anything you can’t” “We aren’t above or beyond you” “We’re on the same level” “We’re just like you” “We’re with you” All of us have the same raw materials as the greatest of women and men. There is no hierarchy when it comes to your career. “everyone who looks, sees something...

true story

Every career has an inspirational true story of its own Knowing our true story is more than inspirational It directly affects how successful and satisfied we feel Some people know their story well and tell it beautifully Some know their story in part or in pieces Others have no knowledge of their story at all Every time I hear a true career story I find it inspiring But what inspires me most is the way each story is found In the ability to discover our true career story we are equal No one is favoured, no person or group has monopoly. The only advantage is our willingness to look and to...

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...

Impossible Futures?

When we are out of work or on a job search, can we ever see ourselves as equal to a working person?  I am just me Before I was just me I was the world’s most successful CEO Before I was the world’s most successful CEO I was a successful executive Before I was a successful executive I was a great manager Before I was a great manager I was a hard-working team member Before I was a hard-working team member I was just a newb Before I was just a newb I was a jobseeker Before I was a jobseeker I was just me I am just me “Every career has a past, every career has a future.”...

Feeling Lucky

Feeling Lucky

When a voice inside says “you can’t”, it makes all the difference in the world to hear someone or something else say “you can”. Support and encouragement comes from other people and it comes from within. Either way it makes us feel ready, feel confident, feel lucky even. Lucky we have someone or something to inspire us. If another person ever encouraged or got behind you, I don’t need to explain what a difference it makes. Support like this happens for a reason. Quite often because that other person saw something good, perhaps even something special in...
