Years ago, I was on a career panel with Dick Bolles who wrote arguably the greatest and most important career manual ever, What Color is Your Parachute? This bible of career advice will soon turn 40! And while the title started out as an off the cuff remark to his students, the words “color” and “parachute” took on deeper meanings to his millions of readers.
When I met Mr. Bolles he was in his mid 60’s. He talked about career change in ways that have shaped my thinking and my career. He said:Everything you do should be:
Temporary–Nothing is permanent.
An Adventure–Engages your curiosity and sense of challenge
A Seminar–Learning new things, continuous education with goals
Fulfilling–Helps define your quest for meaning and purpose
I translated this into “A temporary adventure, which continually educates you about your quest for meaning.” Love it and live by it!…
Active as entrepreneur and convinced autodidact for over twenty years, I choose since many years networking and social media activities.
Throughout this long period I was active in the commercial sector; insurance, real estate, health, well-being..., a wide range of knowledge, where I gained a lot of experience, expertise and know-be! Today, my main objective is to develop a global activity (Networking - Social Media - People Building) with people who have the same vision of life and quality of life to have success together!
