Busy Fish: Tips for Changing Your Day from Chaos to Calm
Syndicated columnist Dale Dauten recently wrote, “One of life’s great joys that we’ve lost is that of the empty day, a day given over to quiet, to reading and contemplation. Our planners and PDAs give the illusion of importance and of being in control.” A beautiful statement but what Dale doesn’t acknowledge is that we’ve become such slaves to busyness and mental stimulation that spending “a day given over to quite” would drive most of us mad!

21st Century Career Success
When it comes to modern career development, one thing we can all count on is change. With the advent of technology, telecommuting, and E-commerce, how work is performed is in a state of reinvention. Self-employment and small business development will become more the norm than big business. And career changes will be more frequent due to rapidly changing organizations and industries. Finally, the line between one’s personal and professional life will become even more blurred. Since the modern world of work is rapidly changing to keep up with the demands of our fast-paced lives and lifestyles, here are some characteristics of what the new work contract will look like: Seeking more meaning from work. Equating “career success” with personal satisfaction over paycheck or status. Everyone will need their own “name-brand.” Increased use of technology. Finding work that needs doing. Changing in the way management and leadership is conducted less arrogance at the top level, more power on lower levels. Increased need for networking and self-marketing. Lifelong “trying on” of various roles, jobs, and industries. Creating a plan that is flexible, and continually assessing the “fit” of the work. Increased representation of women and minorities in the workforce. Changing career fields numerous times in a lifetime. Self-responsibility: Everyone knowing they have to chart their own career direction. However, the 21st century career also offers many advantages: More career opportunities for everyone. Freedom to choose from a variety of jobs, tasks, and assignments. More flexibility in how and where work is performed, i.e. working from home or telecommuting. More control over your own time. Greater opportunity to express yourself through your work. Ability to shape and reshape your life’s work in accordance with your values and interests. Increased opportunity to develop other skills by working in various industries and environments. Self-empowerment mindset. Allows you to create situations or positions where you can fill a need in the world that is not being filled. Opportunity to present yourself as an independent contractor or vendor with services to offer.
