Finding Your Career Acts
Think of your current primary job (or the one you seek) as career act #1. Do you have any other income-creating activities in which you engage? These can be activities such as running an eBay business, working a weekend landscaping job, giving guitar lessons, or selling your paintings at the local art festival. If you have any income-producing activities, outside your primary career act, those are your additional career acts. Use Exercise 1 to think about your own current set of career acts.
Over time, as you develop your career acts, you will begin to see these indicators shift. Your goal will be to derive more satisfaction from the career act in the center of your life while earning an increasing percentage of your total income from the additional career acts. As you do this, your career will become more stimulating, balanced, and secure. Use Exercise 2 to plot your own income-to-satisfaction ratios for each of your career acts.
