Career Development: Empty Your Bins
On a cold January morning, the garbage truck and recycling truck picked up my trash and recyclables. Every week two large bins of material from my home either gets thrown out or recycled. Too many of us in our career development are always trying to add, attain, obtain, or achieve. I invite you to respond to the following three questions: (1) Am I able to identify what I need to throw out of my life versus what I can reuse or recycle? (2) What is weighing me down in my career that I need to trash? (3) What skills, strengths, and experience can I recycle or transform into a new way of working? Before you add more to your career, take out the trash!
