How we got hired (Pt 1)

It’s crazy to think that, after next week, I would have been working full time for three years. Besides being afforded the opportunity to learn, earn, and go on some wonderful trips, I’ve also grown as a person and have been happy to step into the world of a working adult.

But in order to make it into the working world, I had to go through a number of job application and interview processes. Here are my recollections of those processes, and some important pointers I would like to share on getting hired.

We have all gone through the stage of applying for entry-level jobs. Doubtful, stressful, nervous, tedious…. you name it! Looking back, it’s just a mandatory process that improves your maturity and prepares you for the reality in the corporate world. Everything will turn out fine.

In Chapter 7, Bill and Dave exposed a few job-finding tips that I wish I knew before applying for jobs at my Senior year.

If you are waiting for Keith’s posts, you might be disappointed again this week. At the moment, I am still hijacking our blog (with the full consent of my other half). This week, we return to Designing Your Life and continue to explore different possibilities in our lives.

Some time ago, we shared three possible life paths that we can potentially pursue and the authors asked us to start prototyping these options. As such, I conducted some serious desktop research and envisioned the likelihood of living out my second and third alternate life respectively. Follow me!

Aloha everyone! Since Keith shared how he’s inspired by Sir Anthony Kenny’s A New History of Western Philosophy a couple months ago, we’ve been quiet in this category (yes we know that). Before you wonder why, it’s now my time to disclose what’s on my bookshelves!

As Designing Your Life is my regular reading this year, I also read other books in my leisure time. My most recently completed one is Option B by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant. You will not be surprised by the first name if you have been following my posts closely.

Prototyping Your Life (Pt 2)

As much as I respect and believe in Bill and Daves’ life design methodology, one thing that they probably can not/ did not teach us is when life hits us hard with unexpected surprises. While sometimes things might not go as what we planned, we got to learn to live with it and embrace it with love, hope, and most importantly God’s blessings.

As we are making strides in life design, prototyping is what we will experiment next.  We may hear this word a lot in a work context but what exactly is it about when it comes to life design? Let’s find out.

I am sure we have all imagined living a different life at some point. The only difference is that writing out our Odyssey Plan gives us an opportunity to ponder more deeply on how our future variates shall we pursue different paths at one turning point. This is the first time I put these on paper and I am excited to share my 5-year plan in three alternate lives with you. Let’s take a look.

Design your lives (Pt 1)

Is it ever too late to design your lives? Are we only allowed to travel down a certain path? Or is there an opportunity for us to embark on a new direction whenever we want?

Though it may seem counter-intuitive, the answer that Dave and Bill want us to have is “Yes!”. In life design, there’s always another “you” hidden among the various paths of life. Today, let’s look at three paths I could embark on i.e. my Odyssey Plans. Not to worry, they are all legal 🙂
