Have you ever heard of a website called “Linked In?” It’s the 21st century equivalent to a resume. If all the changes in life leave you with your head spinning as you travel Your High-Tech Journey to a Linked-In World, this series of posts is for you. I hope you’ll Join me as I talk about deciding what you want from the journey.
Today, I unveiled something I’m calling “Your High Tech Journey to a Linked In World.” Along the way, I will talk about my struggles to learn and apply a myriad of technology tools that didn’t even exist when I was going to school. But I don’t want this to be a series of disjointed “tech tips” that you can get anywhere. Instead, I want to take a step back, look at the story of my life, and see how I came to learn the things I’ve learned, how I’ve set goals for myself, and then applied the things I learned to help me achieve my goals.
So, before we can strike out on this “high-tech journey to a linked-in world,” it makes sense to me to think about some “low-tech” skills that we all as regular people need to apply. Something my wife calls “common sense and logic.”
And so, in this first “Journey Step,” I talked about identifying your goals in life, and identifying one or more skills you use to achieve your goals. As I have thought about this for my life, Please review the accompanying image. Here’s my encouragement for you: See if you can create a similar matrix for yourself like the one I made for me.
Here is a bible verse I memorized a long time ago, and I think it fits well with the topic of Deciding What You Want from the Journey:
Isaiah 32:8: But the noble man devises noble plans; And by noble plans he stands.
