A few episodes (of The DYOJO Podcast) back we introduced that we are working on book number five. The working title for this book is Challenge Accepted: An Open Letter To Young People Entering The Workforce. This Book is designed to help those entering the workforce. It's a tool for managers who are hiring young people and want to give them some tools to help them understand what it takes to be successful. It's a resource for parents who want to encourage their children to develop the right mindset and habits for career advancement.
The Career Learning Curve
We recorded a video where we read from the rough draft of the Introduction for Challenge Accepted. For this article we will discuss The Learning Curve.
What is the learning curve? It is the gap between where someone is (honest evaluation) and where they want to be (goals). This gap is bridged by what this person needs to learn. For anyone who wants to bridge this gap, they have to recognize where they are and establish a vision for where they want to be.
The learning curve is the bridge that carries a person closer to their vision for their life. We speak often on The DYOJO Podcast about helping contractors shorten their DANG learning curve. This is true for anyone at any point in their life, there is no shortcut for each person's learning curve. As a professional, at any age, there's no shortcut for the learning curve. But, everyone can shorten their learning curve.
Achieving Your Goals
In our latest book (COMING SOON) Challenge Accepted, we discuss the process of closing that gap. There are two factors that will help young professionals accelerate their journey, their inputs and their outputs.
If the reader viewed our prior video on the Introduction for Challenge Accepted, we discussed the Three Be's:
Each professional needs to develop their ability to apply their heart to what they observe if they are going to learn lessons from what they see. The most immediate challenge facing young people entering the workforce is moving from where they are now to where they want to be in the near future. This is the same challenge that faces any person wanting to move closer to their vision.
Book for Young Professionals
Challenge Accepted is an open letter to young people entering the workforce. For business owners this is a book that will help people on staff who want to advance within your company. This book will help professionals identify ways to move between The Three Where's:
This book will help those who want to seek a career, develop as a professional, and pursue what success means to them. Challenge Accepted will help guide the reader transition from where they are (Where #1) to where they want to be (Where #3). To develop as a professional each person needs to be honest about their current level of knowledge, skills and abilities so that they can learn to develop them further. This book will help identify the resources that will help the reader shorten their DANG learning curve.
