One of the most common cliches around is how “everything is 20/20 in hindsight”. But how can you make the right decision in real time? Is there a way to connect the dots as they drop? When you jump, you don’t always get to see the forest from the trees. Oregon Gov joined the podcast this week to talk about using all your dots to benefit your next one- helping see the forest while still in the trees.
Shout outs to….
Shout out to Clarissa in LA, a self described “Huge fan!!” (her words not ours!) of WTJ who just shared her jump ambitions with her boss—more on that on an upcoming podcast. Clarissa had a question for the community which we’ll post here- if you have an answer we would love to hear it and re-post it: "Any advice for introverts who are making the leap on their own? I feel like the entrepreneurial world is ripe for extroverts. I am imagining having to network like crazy, which I will painfully do. Just curious if that has come up others. Any suggestions for those who are energized by being alone?" Tell us your thoughts so we can pass it on to Clarissa.
Things to know…
Jump Club is coming! We’re pumped to see many of you in Boston for a weekend of good food, great keynotes, fun people and meaningful conversations. Get your early bird tickets here!
On the pod…
Our very first politician joins the show, Oregon’s Governor Kate Brown! Laid off on her first ever day of work changed the way Gov. Brown would go on to approach her career, and She shares how everything you do before jumping is critical to making whatever you do next successful. A while back, WTJ Pod listener Theiline in Washington State had asked if a law degree (or any grad degree) could help make future jumps even if its not related to law. Our conversation with Governor Brown helps answer that question.
In the news…
There’s a few really important things to consider before you jump from one job to another, especially if you’re a millenial (Investopedia). Speaking of millenials, nearly 9 out of 10 would take a pay cut to join a company whose mission/culture align with their own (LinkedIn).
