Get-to-do

Henry David Thoreau quote
Perhaps the granddaddy grandparent of all motivational quotes.

If you choose a job that you like, you will never have to work a day in your life.

Confucius

In work, do what you enjoy.

Lao-tzu

At work, make sure your get-to-do’s have at least 51% controlling interest over your have-to-do’s.

No really

Broom or a pencil?

Flowers during a Finland trip. Same flowers you see in Glacier National Park.

In the past, jobs were about muscles, now they’re about brains, but in the future they’ll be about the heart.

Minouche Shafik, director, London School of Economics

i used to tell our son, now 19, that his future will revolve around which mindset he uses – a broom or a pencil?

One uses your body as your paycheck maker, the other uses your brain.

Manual labor or office job.

What Minouche is proposing is a radical third option.Thank you COVID-19 and Global Warming.

Got career joy?

Does the work you get to do trump the work you have to do? That’s what this post means.

Career leadership 201

Cort (left) was our best man in 1983. Cort and i have known Deb (right) and her husband Howard (our fraternity brother) since 1978. Photo: yesterday biking though Philly.

Career leadership 201:

  • Put contribution ahead of pay
  • Love what you do
  • Live within your means
  • Continuously improve
  • Have fun
  • .think .differently
  • Lean into discomfort
  • Envision a future that’s not only better than now, but much better
  • Develop others
  • It is definitely about who you know – get to know a lot of people and the right people

The list goes on, which is why the next blog about personal organization is critical.
