What we're reading: 
After having taken the summer to do some travelling, a lot of recent graduates are now in job search mode. This NYT article  we're reading, 'Follow a Career Passion? Let It Follow You' is not just good reading for a recent graduate, but for anyone in a professional transition.
Quote we're inspired by:  
"For many people, twenty years of experience is really one year of experience repeated twenty times. If you're in permanent beta in your career, twenty years of experience actually is twenty years of experience because each year will be marked by new, enriching challenges and opportunities. Permanent beta is essentially a lifelong commitment to continuous personal growth."
Reid Hoffman Co-founder of LinkedIn

Participants to the Centre's workshops span different generations, have very diverse professional experiences, and come from around the world. Despite the variety, over the years we sense that there is one strong common feature of people to take our  onsite or online courses. They are not willing to settle with the 'status quo' and rest on their laurels.
 
What we share in this Three Thought Thursday captures this bias towards taking action, towards building relationships and to thinking of our careers as being in "permanent beta". Our online course, ' Designing Your Life: Innovation From the Inside Out', starts in  just two weeks and will take you on a deep-dive of all these concepts. We invite you join us!

See you in the next Three Thought Thursday!
