You probably spend more than a third of your day working. Assuming that your career does not begin until you are 25 and that you live to an average retirement age of 65, and that you only work 40 hours a week, you will have spent nearly nine full years of your life working. Given the amount of time we devote to our careers or jobs, it is no wonder that our employment helps to define who we are to the outside world and, more importantly, to ourselves. How many times have you met someone for the first time and they ask “what do you do for a living?”
Careers and jobs not only afford us an identity, they allow us to support ourselves and our loved ones. For most of us, we feed our children, clothe our families, provide homes, afford medical care, and take the annual trip to the beach with the money we earn by working.
It can be devastating when you are terminated or passed over for promotion, and intimidating when your career has uncharted success. Protect yourself in either scenario.
Because our employment is vital to our everyday practical existences and to our own self worth, it can be devastating when you are terminated or passed over for promotion. Likewise, it can be intimidating when your career is taking off into uncharted success. You want to protect yourself in either scenario.
