The Art of Career Building: Chapter 1 - Career Planning

Career building is one of the most important issues we face in our lives. However, few of us take it serious until we reach middle age and the best opportunities of our lives are behind us. Why don’t we take it more serious? I believe it’s because we don’t know how. As I recall, high school and college focused on how to get a job, not how to build a career. All the books I can find on career issues focus on how to get a job, how to interview, and most importantly how to get the highest possible salary.

Sun Tzu in everyday life: The Ground can be near or far.

In a hurry to get where I was going I had two choices, take the known path or the unknown path. What should I do? I quickly assessed the situation and knew that if I took the unknown path, it would almost certainly get me to my destination quicker. On the other hand, if I took the known path it would take longer but I wouldn't get lost. I chose the known path. By taking the familiar path I had an advantage of knowing where I was, where I was going, and how long it would take me to get there.
