The Next Chapter

Written by:  Kraig Ware, VP of Commercial Growth

From time to time as we navigate our life or career we need to step back and ask ourselves a very important question?

What’s the next chapter?

And when we do ask this question…we need a plan to help knock down the barriers that we “assume” are in front of us.  This is important at any stage in your career, as it is pretty hard to accomplish a goal if you do not have one.  This becomes even more important to us as we navigate the short runway towards the end of our careers.  The odds of “success” just falling into your lap, without a goal and a strong plan to obtain it, are pretty slim.  I guess it can happen; however, if that’s our plan, perhaps we can go buy a lotto ticket later today.  But seriously, if you are looking to plan the next chapter in your career, here are “Five Barrier Busters” as written by Don Tebbe that will help.

don tebbeDon Tebbe wrote this great article called “Five Barriers Between You and Your Life’s Next Chapter.”  (Click on the title to read)  As baby boomers reach the tail end of their careers and our life expectancy is getting longer, we need to have a plan to make the most of “The Next Chapter.”  Don lays out five simple barriers that you will need to overcome.  As he puts it:

“Retirement needn’t be an “on-off switch.” You may choose a phased retirement, shifting gradually into “what’s next.”

Here at TYGES, we are looking for a partner in Chicago, IL that is ready for their next chapter.  Are you ready to utilize your industry experience as you gradually shift toward retirement?  If so, give me a call.  If not, we can still be of help as we value long-term relationships and strive to maintain them through out your career working with top-tier clients in the Industrial Manufacturing, AeroSpace, and Defense B2B industries.  For the last 15 years, we have placed north of 1,000 “key” players, helping them on their trajectory toward “The Next Chapter” in their careers.  We can do the same for you.
