“When you believe in yourself, your reality will one day exceed the reach of your dreams!” – Futurist Jim Carroll
Every moment, I count myself blessed that I was able to leave the traditional corporate world 30 years ago, and carve out my own unique career – working on my own, in a home office.
That’s why this morning, I’m thrilled to set off to spend a good part of the day with my older son who is now setting out on the same path., with his own company providing services involving location intelligence and digital mapping. He’s worked for a few companies along the way, both as a student and after graduation, but I’ve come to realize he seems to have the same fierce streak of independence that drove me some years back.
Much of his work involves digital mapping and analysis utilizing some high end drone technology. A few weeks back, he sent a photo while he was onsite for a project – and his smile said it all!
Years ago, on stage, I would often tell the story of the ‘snowboard dude’ – see the link below – who provided me invaluable insight into the attitude that some people carry towards their career. While riding up a chair, I noticed that he did not ask me the typical question, ‘what do you do for a living?”
Rather, something entirely different: “what do you like to do?”
Do you want to define your life by what you do – or by what you like to do? That seems to be a really important question!
Different generations have very different attitudes towards their life and their careers. The snowboard dude thought differently. So does my son. I think they are blessed.
