The bottoms-up approach to career planning (Stew's Letter #103)
I'm 'retired' now and on careers 6 and 7: novel-writing, and beekeeping. I'll call the horse riding a hobby. My wife's the same. Curiosity, challenge, and growth have been our guiding principles through several joint businesses and individual adventures. But it took me a long time to reframe this so that instead of thinking I couldn't stick with anything, I feel satisfied that I'm exploring as many opportunities as I can in my time on earth.
Resonate with everything you wrote here - bad at forecasting, quick to boredom and inherently curious. Currently on my third career and now the only career advice I truly believe is to constantly give yourself permission to change your vision of who you are
This. Is. Me. Thank you for letting me know I'm not alone in feeling like I could never commit my life to one career / thing.
This was really interesting so thank you. Something that I’ve been realizing recently is that even if I can’t consciously recall something I’ve learnt it’s still been incorporated into my thinking
But how does one achieve success in this model ?
