What are your top three career advice tips?
First, life is not linear. What you’re doing now, or have done in the past, need not determine what you can do next and in the future.
Second, money is no guarantee of happiness. We all need enough to live and take care of those who depend on us. But research and experience all confirm that there is no direct relationship between wealth and well-being. Happiness, if that’s what you want, is a spiritual state, not a material one. It comes from being fulfilled, having a sense of purpose and feeling authentic.
Third, the greatest obstacles to finding your Element may lie inside you. You may fear other people’s opinions or that you will fail and look foolish. Finding your Element may take courage, but all worthwhile accomplishments do. - more from Sir Ken Robinson.
