Words from the Wise 41: Dr Mike Warren

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.

Dr Mike Warren said:

“Your history does not have to define your destiny.”

Proteus Career Management says:

“It’s never too late to start managing your career; your past career doesn’t have to define where you end up.”

The lesson? “Protect your future livelihood.”

Dr Mike Warren says:

We cannot predict the unpredictable events that happen during the course of our careers. Examples are legion: divisional closure; takeover bids; irrational board decisions; key personnel resignations; market collapse. However, just like the driver who allows extra time if he’s going to catch a plane, or makes sure the tank is full if he’s using roads he’s not familiar with, you can be prepared for the unpredictable: you can take it in your stride. The Proteus Career Future Proofing distance learning course helps you do just that.
