Are You Busy or Forward Focused

Busy does not mean you are actually in the development of meaningful work.  It is easy to be busy learning new software and protocols and at the same time marching in place instead of going anywhere significant.  It is just as easy to build the next great path for humanity and not need 37-hour days to do so.

I want to say the choice is yours, yet there is a problem you must overcome first.

To feel the inertia of movement, you need to put your plans into gear.  To do so, you need to know and understand software, various philosophies, and how to market your ideas.  There are a plethora of offers to help you through classes, symposiums, and other time (and money) consuming events. 

Do these side developments help you to advance ideas, or are they paid diversions?

The answer is how you decide what training and other knowledge you need and how you go about the process.  Being presented with this, I must ask one thing.

When you work on new projects and programs, how do you pick and plan your platforms to further your knowledge?

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
