Rapids of Change

Just before we left Wausau to take a job in Milwaukee, I had been in correspondence with Robert Theobald, a futurist from Arizona. I was on a mailing list with a hundred other people but Mr. Theobald made us all feel like we would be the ones to save a corner of civilization after the collapse of our society. This was in the mid-80s.

I dropped out of the thought-of-the-month-club to concentrate on my new job.

Last week, after thirty years, I found the original 3-ring binder that I got from Mr. Theobald. I looked up online to find a book he published in 1987 that was the result of his mailing list feedback.  The book pretty much follows the latest edition of the mailed edition.

He encouraged us to do our own thing with “the work.”

To that end and to honor the late gentleman, I am using his published book as an outline to publish the experience of meetings taking place at the Monticello Community Center on Thursdays at 9AM.

Build your brand

After you have done an assessment and gather objective ideas about who you really are and what you want to do with your life (like get a job), the next step is to develop a consistent look on your resume, cover letter, blogs, facebook comments, Linked-In remarks and anywhere else you share the idea that you are looking for a new job.

For now, do an internet search on “personal brand” and you will find out in detail what is being suggested for building your own brand.

New Journal

Continue reading at your own risk.

This blog will discuss, among other things,  the progress of an effort to translate some software from English into another language.

I will edit these entries often, in an attempt to make myself look better. Soon, I hope, there will be less of my own person pronouns, replaced by other writers’ edits and suggestions.
