Reinvesting Versus Reinventing

Posted by Tom Locke on July 10th, 2010 filed in Business, General, Life

Financially, these are challenging times for many.  Some people have been forced to take a new path and, as they say, reinvent themselves.  I think that is admirable.  However, in taking that approach one tends to put aside some of their attributes/skills that they have honed over their careers.  Many of these attributes/skills reflect who they are and are transferable.

Hence, if you are in transition mode, I suggest that you take the approach of reinvesting yourself as it will assist in keeping your attributes/skills at the forefront and aid in determining which are transferable or not.  It will also help you identify opportunities that are a “fit” for you. 

Transition doesn’t happen successfully overnight.  Like my Dad always said, “If at first you don’t succeed, try second base or shortstop!”
