Words from the Wise 22: Richard David Bach

 In 25th Anniversary, Articles, Careers, Words from the Wise

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.

Richard David Bach said:

“Sometimes when learning comes before experience it doesn’t make sense right away.”

Proteus Career Management says:

“Sometimes, even after learning and experience combined, careers still don’t make sense which is why so many young professionals have consulted Proteus with the refrain, ‘I think I’m in the wrong career’.”

The lesson? “Be open to career change.”

Dr Mike Warren says:

During our education we learn and then we are tested: later on when we are learning how to work, we’re tested and that’s how we learn. One of the most important elements of education is not the knowledge of the subject matter per se, but learning how to apply the knowledge in real situations. If we don’t pick up that valuable “application” lesson we can easily finish up in a career to which we are entirely unsuited – even though we found the learning of the subject matter absolutely fascinating.
