Attract The Right Job Or Clientele: 

Our personal and business lives intersect many times throughout the day and sometimes without realizing it and making it wise to analyze your choices. We repeatedly hear, ‘you should do,’ ‘get this, you will love it,’ and ‘that’s not a good idea!’  

But the worst problem is listening to what others think regarding how we are each to live our lives. We each have one life to live to our fullest potential when we allow it to be so. 

Live without regret. 

My Story

Several recent conversations with longtime friends brought the realization loud and clear that when you take the time to analyze your choices, you and all of us can improve tomorrow. Turning the analysis into a habit, we can achieve more than we initially believe to be possible.

Whether we are executives of a large corporation, an entrepreneur, or an employee, we each have two categories for decision-making that we need to deal with almost daily. The two subject matters are time and money. Wasting time can eat into profits while spending too much money will require spending far more time working. Being attentive to both in the best possible way is far more likely to produce our desired outcome. 

Most everyone believes retirement will be a relief in addition to being fun by doing whatever pleases them. But that’s putting the cart before the horse. Once again, serious choices stare into one’s face to improve tomorrow. Sadly, two previously highly successful friends are now struggling to make ends meet. My takeaways from the two conversations are:

  • Groom your talent to support yourself; if you are fortunate to find a suitable partner, celebrate. 
  • Save and invest with the help of a financial planner.
  • Focus on your talent to build upon what you most enjoy; passion and purpose will help get you there.

And the lesson from the third conversation is:

  • Before retiring, consider how you may spend each day without fighting boredom.

The person who spent the past few years dreaming about retirement is now experiencing frustration due to not knowing what he wants to do. He was so focused on work accumulating money for retirement that he never took the time to find a hobby for occupying his mind or planning for an exit strategy. Compounding the problem, some of his friends are leaving the area.  

Fortuitously, I began writing long ago and always find it a joy to do. Over time, the blog developed into not only sharing my insights but collaborative ones, too, because it’s not just about my insights that may work well for others. 

The answer is always about diverse and inclusive thinking.

Similarly, we never have just one answer; ‘oh, I’ll retire, and life will be good.’ It takes effective planning and coming to terms with who we are, what we desire, and want to contribute back to society.  

The title of the Beatles’ song, The Long and Winding Road’ came to mind, although it portrays a different scenario. Our life journey is a long and winding road with many twists and turns. When we are young, we wonder, ‘why is this happening?’ whereas later on, the realization hits ‘that’s the reason!’

Those who pay attention are more adept at connecting the dots and continuing the journey after gainful employment. Connecting with similar-minded people with a purpose and contributing to a community is the differentiator for enjoying the later stage of my career and attracting opportunities.

If you are in the beginning stage of your career, you will do well to come to terms with where you are today and the status you eventually want to achieve.  Take the time to analyze your choices and how you may improve for future outcomes.  As you create lists of goals for the near term and distant future, consider which efforts bring the most joy.  Consider the following:

  • Which efforts did you find the least enjoyable and why?
  • What do you want to avoid in the future if possible?
  • Is there a common element among the ones you like most?

Continuing the journey throughout our career and into the phase of ‘retirement’ we are to maintain a commitment to learning.  Keep in mind that the last thing you ever want to feel is being obsolete. Finding a community or hobby to your liking and interests is an excellent way to get started on your future journey.  Set a small portion of time aside to test before quitting your job so that you will have something to look forward to doing when you are ready to leave the work world. Again, invest the time to analyze your choices to improve tomorrow!
