Been spending incredible effort seeking out a new position or a raft of clients in the learning/development field. Wow, what a struggle! I haven’t had to do this since Adam and Eve so the techniques and technologies, behaviors and attitudes have shifted seismically. I’ve discovered a wonderful cohort of people out there who share their knowledge and make important suggestions when they could easily ignore me.
But the real test of our 3.0 connectedness, though LinkedIn, Plaxo, Xing and others is to reach out and respond to the needs of a virtual connection. I asking for a hand up – as I’ve done for others in the past.
I received an email from my optometrist. When told I couldn’t shop for new glasses for a while because I had no work said, “The universe will send you clients.”
Well, I hope so. We can reason that life is journey to be experienced and each moment we are not living we are dying.
