It used to be that you’d take courses so you could get the job...
Twenty years ago, someone would go to school and study for years to get a job that would become their career, perhaps for a lifetime.
Now, because the world of work is changing so rapidly, many people are sensing into what they want to do in 5-10 years, and then getting jobs and taking courses to build skills along the way. This is good news in a way - you no longer need to choose a career for your lifetime, you just need to have a sense of a trajectory.
Because your future job might not have been invented yet, you are essentially on a journey that doesn't have a set destination. It's like a choose your own adventure in the world of work.
Your task is to have an idea of your overall direction, and then to decide what skills you'll need to get there. Even if you don't know what "there" looks like yet.
What follows are some videos of Daniel Goodenough, author of The Caravan of Remembering, speaking more about this more fully.
