Yesterday was the first day of school in my city and many surrounding counties. As I thought about all the children going back to school a question popped in my head?
Did I miss a lesson?
Most of us have studied hard, some harder than others, but I know there was a lesson which was missed.
** most people do not read a book after they finish high school
** ten years after they have graduated 80% of the people with a college degree are not working in their field of major
** unemployment numbers are high
** about 85% of working folks do not like their jobs
As you talk to, coach, mentor, tutor and hangout with students this school year start asking them a pointed question.
Ask this: How do you want to spend your (working) day?
That might be a trick question for many people, but in the quest to live a more fulfilling life it is a question worth asking. For many the answer isn't easy to come by.
1. What helped you narrow down your area of interest?
2. Are you truly on the path toward work you love?
3. If you could study a subject right now, what would it be?
Keep learning. Stay alert, there are lessons long the way to work you love, don't miss them.
Thanks for stopping by. Pull up a chair and come back often.
