Career Crafting Blog
Periodic updates on programs, special events, new methods that are relevant to everyone in the Career Crafting universe.
The graphic below captures the true aim and mission of Career Crafting. It provides us with a visual framework for converging our passions, our gifts, the marketplace reality and the needs of our world.
This is the journey to a life of fulfillment. Career Crafting provides the toolkit. You provide the desire. Together we create the magic. We call it Evolutionary Purpose. Please share..
Are you checking out our site because you have an intuitive hit that Career Crafting is different from mainstream approaches but not sure exactly HOW? Here are the most important differences:
Career Crafting uses a holistic, integrative model. It is BEING focused rather than JOB focused. Career Crafting empowers you to get connected to your creativity, passion, life purpose, and greatest gifts, then apply 21st century marketing strategies to achieve your goals and life vision.
Holistic means that all aspects of you are honored and valued. We do not seek to find an occupational category, box for you but discover together your unique expression in the world that is both financially rewarding and personally satisfying.
We separate your short term financial needs (which we call Taxi Job) from your long term goals and dreams (which we call your Career Playground). This allows us to deal with the priorities and eliminate the confusion and conflict arising when this distinction is not made.
We do not see your career as simply a place to "earn a living" but rather an opportunity for deep personal fulfillment, creativity and contributing your greatest gifts to the world.
Career Crafting is both a program and a system that can be applied to a 17 year old high school student wanting to design their future AND a person in their 60's wanting to experience fulfillment in their retirement years.
If you'd like to get a deeper sense of what we're about, I recommend listening to my radio interview "The Awesome Power of Living Your Life Purpose" accessible at http://bit.ly/5WIikQ.
We also have a Career Crafting Overview document at http://bit.ly/XYLNPe. Clicking on the text inside any circle on page 1 will take you to the page on that topic.
All questions and comments are welcome and appreciated.
Despite its brevity, the commencement address delivered by Steve Jobs at Stanford University is one of the most inspiring presentations of all time. It is also a bold and compelling endorsement of our Career Crafting program. I encourage you to view it and post your comments and questions.
In the 20th century, your greatest asset was cash or the equivalent, i.e. anything that could easily be converted to cash. These were called liquid assets.
