107 days are left in 2014. Imagine what it would be like to land on New Year’s Day 2015 with clarity about your next career steps.

Announcing 100 Days to Career Clarity

Starting September 23, I’ll send out one question each day to people on my mailing list (sign up box is below). You can also view the daily questions on Facebook (Like my page to see the daily questions in your activity feed) and Twitter.

And it’s Free!

“Free!?” People ask me. “Seriously?”

“Yes, yes.” I say.  And I have an ulterior motive. There’s always a catch, isn’t there? I want to use the content to write a book, so I’m asking for people to send me their responses, which will give the book more depth. And it’s also fine for you to receive the questions and be private about your responses. Just send me your responses if you want to contribute. Plus, I’m offering a free career coaching session to people who write to me (see details below).

Bonus Question for Developing Your Career Plan

What's your dream location for your next job?

There’s an office about a block from my house that’s on a courtyard with a coffee shop — I’ll know I’m successful when I have my private practice set up in that office.

Here’s a taste of the questions that’ll come your way:

If you hit the fast forward button on your life and zoomed ahead 10 years where you’re wildly successful, what are the signs that we could observe about your success? How would your 10-years-older self explain your success to someone else?

Answering the Questions

So, what are you supposed to do with these questions?

The short answer is, answer them.

  • Talk to people you see every day. Ask them their answers. Tell them yours. Stir up conversation.
  • Capture your responses. Good old fashioned paper and pen works great, and journaling apps (DayOne, for example) are good choices, too.
  • Send me your answers. First because I want to know what you’ve got to say. And second, if you choose this option, I’ll gift you with a free 60-minute session to distill the responses. Send me at least 3 sentences for each question and respond to at least 90 of the 100 questions. Your responses can arrive up to a week after the questions are published, so you can take your time to email me.  2 caveats for this deal: Know that I may use what you write (anonymously, of course!) for a book I’m planning to write at the end of this grand project. And I won’t be writing you back. I’ll read everything and I’ll be listening, and we won’t connect personally until January when we schedule your appointment.
  • Even though there are many ways you can respond to the questions (comments here on this blog, Facebook comments, Twitter….so many options!), the only place I’ll collect your responses is via email (careerdesignandcoaching@gmail.com).

    You can definitely start late. All you need to do is scroll through the blog. I’m no longer offering free sessions to participants, but all of the content is on the blog for you do the process on your own. Enjoy!
