Children Say

Sometimes children can be an unexpected and innocent source of great career change advice.

Case in point.
When my wife asked how went day one of my IT consulting gig, my daughter aka Princess Smiley (she’s crazy about Miley Cyrus) came straight out with:

“Do you actually do stuff on your computer at work?”

Now there’s a reflective question worth chewing on for a while.

And it made me come up with three of my own.

  1. Where’s the value in what you do?

  2. What do you enjoy about it?

  3. Do you want to keep on doing it?

Listen up!

Sometimes you don’t need to ask; feedback is all around you!

Are you bold enough to answer these questions?

I’ll post my thoughts at a later date.

(PS: Have a listen to Children Say by Level 42.)
