Career Advice – Stop Calling What You Are Doing a Career!

By on December 14, 2017

Have you ever considered a specific point in your career that was a turning point to your current success? Was there a serious of decisions you made? Perhaps in college on which classes to take or later on which industry you wished to work in, or which job interviews to go for. Did you have an opportunity that you just took, maybe without even thinking?

When asked this question, I honestly couldn’t remember, but if there was one, it must have come young. Although, I’d say I decided to stop listening to what people thought about what I was doing, or caring when people told me I couldn’t do something and turned those comments into challenges. Still, when I say “career” I never thought of what I was doing as a job, more of an adventure, a mission, a journey, a challenge.

If you really want to advance in your “career” stop calling it that, stop using the words; career, job, profession and start concentrating on the future, making a difference, and the mission at hand. Think of the challenges that must be met and why your chosen work is so important to our civilization and society. Think beyond the norm, think about making a difference and why what you are doing must be done to the best of your ability.

Stop allowing that J-O-B from becoming merely something you must do, and turn it into something you truly want to do. Look at it this way, if you didn’t get paid; would you still do what you are doing now? If so, you have arrived, if not, you need to adjust your attitude or find something more meaningful to do. Please consider all this.
