Why has career planning suddenly become so important?

“Why are you harping on this issue?

OK, next question:  ‘Is this a real thing, or are you just another consultant trying to sell me something I don’t need?  I am 30.  This seems so anal.  I do not want my friends to think I am some career-obsessed psycho.’

Good questions.  I get it. But let me ask you two questions.

Are you one of those people who believe you have little say over your destiny?

Are you someone who will be satisfied with the results that life deals you — good or bad?

Now, while you think about who you are and what you are prepared to accept, I will get to work on your answers.  Fair warning: The answers may startle you.

Part 2 is tomorrow at 6 AM.
