Career Prescription #2: Start a Blog from the Career Opportunities Podcast

This week I continue my series of Career Prescriptions in hopes of moving you forward on some very important work that can help you to define and improve your career. Last week, I prescribed getting an account on LinkedIn. Today, I expect that there might be even a bit more push back when I tell you to start a blog, if you don’t have one already. If you already have a blog, start updating it more often.

The Southeast: Your Dislikes from Using the Career Compass to Find Your Work and Career [Audio] (1:03)

Sometimes I'll take the computer to the wilderness park down on Kanan Dume and sit in the woods and writing on the computer. I know it sounds weird, but that's a perfect combination for me of that high-tech and high-touch elements.

What's something that you guys don't like? What would you put down here in this column? This quadrant? Math? Math is a big one. I have a great book to refer you to. There is a guy named Art Benjamin who does "Mathemagic" and he has the Art of Mental Math - The Secret of Mental Math, I think is his latest book. It helped me get over my math phobia a bit. But definitely a big one. Public Speaking. How many people -- these days, I don't know how you survive if you have a fear of public speaking these days. Some people don't like getting up and presenting in front of people. Then don't have a job that requires you to give presentations day in and day out. You will absolutely hate it, right? But if you never thought about that maybe you didn't put it down there.

The Northeast: Your Current Likes from Transition is the New Normal 2016 [Video] (1:01)

Let’s say our preference is to head North. That’s where we want to go in our life. In these 4 quadrants, I want you to start notating things. Up here, these are things you’re doing today that you like doing. So, doing positive (D+) that’s why that’s there. so, things you’re doing now that you like. Things about your career — and this isn’t about — don’t think macro. Don’t think “I like being a policeman. ” Think about I like dealing with the public. I like dealing with kids.” Break down your preferences into those things about your current work and current life that you really like doing. And you start to mark those in your compass up here. I like technology. I like gardening and I’m doing a bit of both. I do some YouTube videos on gardening and stuff like that. You can use the distance from the center as kind of a scale. Something out at the edge maybe you like more than something in the middle. You can actually even get very fine with your gradations there.
