Chapter 32. Don't Resign Yourself— Redesign Yourself

In today's climate of dot.com and high-tech layoffs, many people are running scared. People are afraid that the next job axe may fall on them; that the next business cutback will chop off their clients. Still other changes and readjustments in the workplace are due to more and more cross-cultural diversity across and within departments. Thus, this fast pace of c may leave you breathless and hoping for more stability, and your hopes to redesign your current job around your current skills may not work either.

For some people, such developments are demoralizing. They see the writing on the wall that looks like "Up and out!" But you don't have to resign yourself to becoming one more statistic in the turbulent new economy. Instead, think how you can redesign yourself to create a new improved future for yourself. Like the chameleon, be ready to change your colors as the environment shifts around you.
