It has been three months since I showed up at the door step of a place of employment. Do I miss it? No. Do I miss the people? Sure.
During this time we have taken on many important projects, events, trips and tasks. Now that I have a bit more time, each of these start with a research phase. “Dr. Google” knows everything and everyone. This allows access to the people that have solved the problem before. For the same reason each of us add value in our professions, it is the expertise we each have that makes us valuable in the workforce.
If this is true, then why is it that so many people get their advice outside of work from family, friends and neighbors. We ask the “ignorant” important questions that have long term impacts on our lives. PLEASE do not be confused. Ignorant does not indicate a lack of intelligence! It simply means “unknowing.” We all can’t know everything. Many of my current questions have to do with next careers, finance and risk management. I’m locating and talking to the experts that have proven track records. People like to share and help those that come behind them. They are mentoring just as we have done.
