“For many, retirement is now a myth, and the ability to adapt to a rapidly changing workplace is fundamental.”
We wrote Rapid Change Is Disrupting How We Approach Work and Purpose in The Super Age blog this week. Without a doubt, cycles of change are moving ever faster. Those best able to nimbly move from event to event will weather the transitions best.

Getting Some Attention on LinkedIn
Here’s a great story of someone in business development being creative about getting the attention of a potential customer. Even better, he used our mapping exercise to do it.
“… (he) leveraged the personal strategy plan taught in that video to map out his steps for reengaging with my team. Then sent me a picture of it. He even used my preferred nickname there in the middle.”
Follow Your Usefulness
Career Coach John Tarnoff writes: “Many of us came of age inspired by mythologist Joseph Campbell and the line that is often attributed to him: ‘Follow your bliss and the money will follow.’ What Campbell actually said was a bit different, and not quite so definitive:”
“Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”
Tarnoff believes that success is a much more complex intertwining of skill, talent, hard work, and timing. So don’t simply follow your bliss. It’s an illusion.
