Words from the Wise 44: Alice Longworth

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.

Alice Longworth said:

“You can’t make soufflé rise twice.”

Proteus Career Management says:

“Sometimes you have to recognise that the situation you are in is beyond your control and that good career management means it really is time to move on.”

The lesson? “Be open to career change.”

Dr Mike Warren says:

Most of us will experience times in our lives when unanticipated events overtake our careers. If it happens to you and you are not one of the fortunate 9% who really do look forward to Mondays mornings in your current role, then maybe it is time to consider a change of career direction – it might be a slight change from one sector to a related one, perhaps a little more drastic with a change of function as well, or even a radical change to something entirely unrelated: dreams can come true, Monday morning doesn’t have to be filled with dread!
