startup-1018512_1920What’s so different about managing your career today?

Then… One or two jobs; one or two companies; one or two minor course corrections; security found without in the organization that employed you. Retired by 60 and dead by 65.

Now… Many jobs; many ways of working beyond the world of jobs. As lifetimes lengthen, outliving your money is a good bet for many. Boomeranging from your old job to another job then back again. Round and round the employment tree we go.

Tomorrow is not only another day; it’s sooner than your most imagined, worst-case scenarios. Full-time, part-time, some-of-the-time; here, there and everywhere; the reinvention of YOU, is a given. You might say, “Help, give me some tips for moving forward.” OK, without delay, here is our list:

business-loop_192010 Tips for Rebooting your Career:

  1. Following your passion is still a good idea; IF you align your dream with market need,
  2. Knowing how to work in multiple ways – beyond the world of jobs – is a given,
  3. Using newest social media and technologies, is not optional. Wave goodbye to the resume,
  4. Running your career like a business – not like a job – is a must,
  5. Working – or competing – from here, there and everywhere will be a part of your future,
  6. Needed skills trump wrong degrees,
  7. Who you know is not as important as who knows you,
  8. Your familiar “job” may no longer exist…or your skills may no longer meet new demands,
  9. Current knowledge trumps lengthy experience,
  10. Your best investment, now and in the future, is an investment in yourself.

After 22-y of self-funding social improvement projects, I can say that if the wealth holders in our society would spend 40-60% of their income on social improvement projects, these islands would be a much nicer place. Whether it is decreasing entropy, building community resilience, giving voice-to-the-voiceless, or making visible-the-invisible, my teams envision, innovate, and demonstrate community improvements, through inspiration, education, lean action and community synergy, using both local and global campaigns, focused in the areas of conservation, agriculture, and energy innovation. For several years I served on the Umematsu and Yasu Watada Lectures on Peace, Social Justice and the Environment, bringing voices like Frances Moore Lappe, David Korten, Richard Heinberg, Helena Norberg Hodge and Dr. Steven Schneider to Honolulu. I've been a participant and social philanthropist in the fabric of the islands, via for-benefit, for-profit and faith networks. Worked my way to a masters degree with distinction in Sustainable Development Leadership from Hawaii Pacific University. Change agent, strategic sustainability advisor, and inspirational public speaker, I've spoke to audiences across Hawaii's business, government, and educational sectors. Mixing a friendly approach, a professional curiosity, and downbeat humor, in my presentations, shift happens. At, I writes about science, climate change, spirituality, and systems, and how these scale to social improvement.
