Take Time To Grow . . . The Spirit Isn’t Finished Creating You
In my lifetime, the most significant change is society’s definition of security in the United States, maybe in the world. In my youth the goal was to work in one Company, become expert in one function, Marketing, sales, etc. and stay till they gave you pension and a Gold Watch. Your experience was deep and narrow.
Today when I hire, the person I want is the one who has changed jobs, by choice, every three years. Each new job gives unique experience, which changes what we “see” when we look at a new problem. That is what I want in every person on my team. I want the insight and judgment that only comes with experience in multiple functions, products, organizations, broad & shallow and is best in our fast moving universe.
Tell me when you have reached your 50th birthday. I will send you a card saying;
“Congratulations, now your experience begins changing into wisdom.”
Nuff Said !!!
