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 TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
