Radical Truth #19

















BEING IN A CRAP JOB ISN'T YOUR FAULT. STAYING IN A CRAP JOB IS.
This one hurts and I say it gently. So many people are just trying to survive in their jobs. But here's the thing: Your career belongs to you, and only you. Even in a loathsome job, even if you're paying private school tuition for two kids, you're not without options. A job can control your time and paycheck. But it cannot control your future. Unless you allow it to.

Excerpt from 'Radical Careering.' This book has a lot of radical ideas about how shifts in the corporate arena have led to mass discouragement and uncertainty as the world of business reinvents itself daily. Today’s rising stars have a different mindset about success. Instead of being motivated by simplistic perks or immediate responsibilities of a JOB, these professionals are driven by an individualistic vision for a lifelong CAREER. They represent a new breed of professionals who adapt to rules that change every morning, and again by lunchtime. Cool kan? Ya'all better be nice to your employees.

Good concept, a little idealistic though.
