Chapter 2. The Seismic Shift > Plan for the Rest of Your Life

Plan for the Rest of Your Life

Part of knowing yourself means knowing where your passions lie. It means knowing when you are the best you and making the needed provisions to reach that nirvana for yourself. Planning means keeping an eye on long-term, whole-life goals and keeping in tune with priority changes that will occur as you evolve through experiences in life and work. Keeping a wide view on opportunities will keep your ideas fresh and exciting and you might find ways to reach your working bliss that you hadn’t thought of before. Money matters, and you need to start planning as soon as possible. Money is a big part of the freedom plan because it simply gives you the liberty from worry and bondage to a bad place. Having money will buy you time if you need it, or afford a life change if you want it. If you find that you are in a place that is not in concert with your values you will know it, and if you are prepared, you can make a positive change. This will be true in even the toughest times if you are excellent in your work, if you have the conviction to speak for your values, and if you are prepared financially to carry you over if you need it.

You can have it all even though there will be times when you can’t have all of it at the same time. As circumstances and issues ebb and flow and you come to know yourself and believe in your convictions, you will weave your own rules. This might seem a tall order for some of you, but it is a reachable objective. You have the power. Take care of your reputation, ongoing education, integrity, and money. Own your career and stay true to yourself; don’t let a career or company or someone’s opinion of you own you. It is essential to understand the corporate objectives and it is your responsibility to gain that knowledge so that you can conquer difficulties in a way that is true to your values and sensibilities. It is your responsibility to let people know you and to understand the different styles and comfort zones of the hiring decision makers. The real work is about to begin.
