3D Juggling 433: Extravagant Ideas

There are still 2 spaces on the Action Learning Set Facilitator training on 30th June in London. Make us a reasonable offer...

Claire writes: 'Many years ago, Barbara Sher wrote a book called: I could do anything if only I knew what it was. When people come for a Career Makeover, that phrase is mirrored in many conversations. So how on earth do you get inspiration? Ask for advice, and those close to you receive your anxiety and add it to their own feelings about your career and how it affects them - which can rather stifle creativity!

Try this: Find 5 people who know you well and ask them each to write down 20 jobs they could imagine you doing. You'll have thought of the first five and the last five will probably be crazy. But in that list will be clues about potential which others see in you and some great creative thinking. Embalmer was on one lady's list - not something she had thought of before! This can also make a fun evening with friends - just get the list down before you open the second bottle of wine!'

Love this? Do us a favour and send it to five people. Who thinks like you? You could send it to someone who is looking for ideas.
