Think back to all of your answers from the prior lessons.

Action Step

Answer these questions:

  1. What have I done/accomplished/experienced in my past?
  2. What are my strengths?
  3. What do I want in all aspects of my life?

Take your time reviewing your prior answers and summarizing what you’ve learned regarding this questions.

Don’t just answer the questions.  Look for patterns, trends.  Try to look for things that stick out.  You are creating an outline with which to assess and analyze job and career opportunities.

Also, review the last action step you completed, the 3 wildly unrealistic things you want to do.

Action Step

Now that you have thought about all of these things you’ve written down, think about how they fit together.  Then think about the jobs and opportunities you are entertaining as possible career choices.

Hold these opportunties up next to your findings.  It should be very clear to you the ones that match the type of life, lifestyle and career that you want to have.

If one doesn’t match what you want your life to be like, get rid of it!  Congrats! You just saved yourself countless hours, headaches and frustration.  This is the time to weed out the opportunites that don’t match your criteria.

Action Step

Write down three jobs or opportunities that fit your criteria.  and remember, DON’T QUALIFY YOUR ANSWERS!!!
