Words from the Wise 40: George Carlin
This is a series of posts that uses a quotation by a famous person from history to make a point about career management. Take a moment to reflect and see whether you can start using this wisdom as you start managing your career.
George Carlin said:
“Not only do I not know what’s going on, I would not know what to do about it if I did.”
Proteus Career Management says:
“If you ever feel at work like George Carlin felt, then it is time to think about a new career or the very least a new employer.”
The lesson? “Be open to career change.”
Dr Mike Warren says:
If you don’t know what’s going on at work and if confusion reigns, either you aren’t asking the right questions or someone is being evasive with their answers. It’s time perhaps to have a chat with your mentor or your master mind group: it is certainly time to ask yourself whether the working environment you are in is conducive to your wellbeing and a decent work life balance. A good question to start with might be “Do I look forward to Monday mornings?”
