Get a career, not a job!

Published by rudy Date posted on April 11, 2010

Why we rush into jobs:

  • Panic
  • Pressure
  • Promises (or expectations)
  • “Pikon” (we want something, anything for work)

Key idea: A job is a relationship: ask yourself, do your have a keeper?

Job vs Career


  • Tool to reach financial goals
  • Little or no planning involved
  • Becomes less satisfying if gifts and abilities are not utilized
  • Most people choose jobs and work environments that fit lifestyle choices
  • Offers stability and security
  • Represents routine, low risk and stability
  • You work to live


  • Vocation in talent and skills are expressed throughout a lifetime
  • Careful and prepared planning
  • Passions and interests are cultivated
  • Careers are chosen to leverage education and experience for advancement and progression
  • Stimulates talents in a way that aligns with personal aspirations
  • Embodies flexibility, risk and opportunity
  • You live to work

To determine your careers

  • Write down your goals.
  • Break it down.
  • Make a list of how to achieve your goals: build on your skills.
  • Expand your network. Learn more about the field you want to be in.
  • Visualize.
