Career Management Step 1: Learn Who You Are

 

We are not all born with the personality and skills needed to be successful. Take a look at the best managers. The managers at the top of their career share certain personality traits and skills. Very little is left to chance. They never lose sight of their goals. They have learned to put their emotions aside, enhance their strengths, and overcome their weaknesses.

 

There is no confusion or hesitation when asking what they want, where they are going, or how they reached their current level of success. They were not always the person who stood taller, talked louder, walked faster, worked longer, and exuded confidence. These were skills they learned.

 

The journey starts with self exploration. It is hard to understand where you are going unless you understand who you are, and what made you the person you are now.

 

Who Am I?

 

We are all multifaceted. We have desires that are often molded by beliefs. The problem with beliefs is that many of them are ‘second hand.’ We’ve been told that success requires a certain income, level of fame, lifestyle so we strive to reach that. We never look at what we need as a person to be happy.

 

It is impossible to understand what we need until we learn what beliefs are truly ours, and what we believe because parents, society, media, or peers have imposed those beliefs on us.  The first step to understanding who we are, and what we want, is to separate our ‘wants’ and ‘needs’ by determining what our beliefs are. Once we explore this then we can determine our level of integrity.

 

There are no wrong answers. Many people are surprised to learn that money and career choice has little impact on their motivation.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.

TED: David Brooks: Should you live for your résumé ... or your eulogy? - David Brooks (2014)

Within each of us are two selves, suggests David Brooks in this meditative short talk: the self who craves success, who builds a résumé, and the self who seeks connection, community, love -- the values that make for a great eulogy. (Joseph Soloveitchik has called these selves "Adam I" and "Adam II.") Brooks asks: Can we balance these two selves?
