Frequently, highly competent people end up coming to me for career advice. Sometimes they are at the beginning of their career. Other times, it's a person who is entering the latter stages of their run. Regardless of where they are, the question is the same.
How do I know what I should try to do next?
There are lots of career advice books out there that can help, but nearly all of them contain a common question in response.
What would you do for free?
If money were not an object, what would you do for no pay at all? Chances are, you won't be able to land exactly that job. But if you can answer that question, and follow your passion, you're on the path. And if you can line up your passion and your strengths, you'll be highly employable.
Ultimately, if you can find a way to align your passion, your strengths, and a need in the world, you'll not look for a job for a long, long time.
Ask yourself the question today, "What would you do for free?"
