Graduation day. Think of it: There you were, smiling for the camera, arms round your family and friends, looking fabulous in a cap and gown. I suspect that while you were standing there, you had certain, basic assumptions about what would follow. In other words, you took it for granted that life wasn't frozen in time. You didn't know the how, what, where, or when of your future, but that was okay with you. Why, then, while smiling for the camera on graduation day, are so many of us plagued by the idea that our career life is stuck in that moment? As in: "Right now, standing here with my arms around my friends and family and holding my mouth in a good smile, I'm supposed to know exactly what I'm going to do in my career." And yet, after the click of the camera and a slight pause, you were able to put your arms down, step away from the pose, and continue rolling with the ongoing "movie" of your life. Here's the thing: It's okay to approach your career the same way. In fact, it's better than okay. It's natural. You can only start from where you are. It doesn't have to seem exactly right. It doesn't have to be "perfect." You can adjust your direction along the way, and even have fun doing it. But first you have to start moving. Book jacket.
