These questions have always been a challenge. Much more so now, that the global market for jobs is undergoing change of historic proportion. As Thomas Friedman noted in his New York Times blog, "Every middle-class job today is being pulled up, out or down faster than ever. That is, it either requires more skill or can be done by more people around the world or is being buried — made obsolete — faster than ever."
You seek greater focus for your personal development, but how do you prepare for an uncertain future?
"Prediction is very difficult, especially about the future."
This quotation, attributed to the well known Nobel Laureate physicist Niels Bohr, seems particularly apposite to the economic circumstances today. Paraphrasing Bohr, many people agree that planning and preparing for a fulfilling and rewarding career is a perplexing puzzle, much more so than in the recent past.
One way to start untangling this puzzle is to explore one's own strengths and inclinations. It is generally accepted that once you become really good at the kind of work that suits you well, you will find the way to reap the rewards that you value.
