To Thine Own Self Be True
Where are we all going in this ever-changing workspace that is growing, fluctuating and breathing like an organism?
We are out on the road, travelling from school to school and it’s clear that the choices for the future have never been so plentiful. We’re creating tangible value and service price points for emerging industries like social media management for larger businesses, who are garnering massive returns through a well executed social media strategy.
But I’m not here to tell you what you should be doing to make your business better – there are hundreds of books and articles written by people with far more experience than I can throw in your direction. I’m just here to remind you that in a market where everyone is shouting to be heard, your voice has to be your own.
With the Colleges Ontario’s “Picture Your Future” tour, we see hundreds of kids pass by each day who are dreaming of their future and about 90% of these bright youngsters come through our booth to act it out!
Every once and a while, a young student will come through and grab a generic prop and use it in a way that we have never seen before and THAT is something we remember.
But always remember, you are who you are!
It’s a busy work place out there, and there are even more people making noise struggling to be heard amongst the ruckus. Make sure your voice is unique and don’t resort to imitation – make sure it’s unique, and make sure it’s yours.
Look to the future and be heard.
