what is the one thing you wish you could accomplish?
Everyone has that one dream they wish to accomplish. However, when faced with uncertainty & doubt, we tend to give up & take the “safer path”. As a result, our dreams go unfulfilled. If you could accomplish anything in your life, as crazy or ridiculous as it may seem, what would it be? #sucess #dreams #career #college
The one thing that I would like to accomplish is to provide helpful career information which will help people like you to make the best contribution to society by identifying and developing and applying your personality traits to appropriate career areas. Too many people do not take the time and effort to go through this process and end up in careers that do not allow them to use their skills, abilities, aptitudes and interests to align themselves with the proper career.
Getting to know yourself and how your personality traits relate to people involved in various career opportunities is very important in your decision making process. During my many years in Human Resources and College Recruiting, I ran across too many students who had skipped this very important step and ended up in a job situation which for which they were not well suited. Selecting a career area is like buying a pair of shoes. First you have to be properly fitted for the correct size, and then you need to try on and walk in the various shoe options to determine which is fits the best and is most comfortable for you to wear. Following are some important steps which I developed during my career which have been helpful to many .
Ken recommends the following next steps:
My dream has always been to travel! To take the time to go to the American Revolutionary sites, Canada, Alaska, to take long train rides, travel by steamboat down the Mississippi, etc and then do Europe. But I have things that hold me back, such as caring for my elderly parents, not wanting to leave my dog behind for any length of time (and he's too unruly to take with me!), my own health issues, etc. So, since I am retired, I think the next best thing will be to take virtual vacations! I haven't started working on it yet, but I intend to!
Zip-lining is also on that list, and I WILL get around to doing that!!
I encourage you to take risks while you are young! As you get older, you are generally less likely to do so because of various responsibilities. You have all your life to be "an adult." It's over-rated. Enjoy the transition period, especially the ages of 18-23. Don't do anything that will ruin you for life (criminal activity), but do have fun and enjoy life!
