We believe, in our humblest opinion, we should not intend to manage our careers via a “Grand Plan”. But rather, we advise everyone to explore, garner experiences, and most importantly, to never chase a “title”.
This means that we must view life as a journey, and to categorize it by our purpose. This means that we use our purpose to help facilitate our actions with whatever we decide to do. Most of all, we should never define who we are by the title that we hold. Therefore, what can we do?
The first action item, identify the reality that we are living in. Get a handle of all our senses, while understanding how things are going with the relationships we hold (both personal and professional). Identify where our strengths and levers are. Identify the weaknesses. And then find ways to garner experiences and relationships, to convert them into opportunities.
And most importantly, to not feel threaten or scared to get a grasp of what is going on around us. Be self-confident. And have the self-assurance to understand that our perspective is a unique proposition in our world. And remember, always have faith in you.
The second action item is to search for meaning. And understand that what we find meaningful will be the basis of our purpose. Let us love us, to self-discover us. And always make the time for self-reflection. Effectively, when we find meaning, we will have the greatest power known in our galaxy. The ability to unconditionally love others.
So why are we even making a big fuss about this. Because we are not our career. We are not our day job. Our career can help shape us and be part of our path, but it is not our destiny.
But we are an extension of our homes. We are an extension of our family and heritage. We are an extension of diversity in experiences, which helps form our diversity of thought.
For instance, let us quickly talk about Reputational Capital. Reputational capital can be seen as a “currency” of influential power, via trust. And it is something that should be earned. And it only blossoms with diversity of thought.
Therefore, we argue and challenge you to adopt the philosophy that there is not a grand plan to things, but rather grand behaviors that enables us to dream. And effectively, convert those dreams into reality.
We conclude our statement with the following review:
