George – I think the info you provide is wonderful! Your comments are always thought-provoking, if not downright inspiring for those of us over 50. Life is not over – with more to come as long as we take charge of our own destiny and stay open to new ventures. Thanks again!

I just saw the movie The Artist (which is getting rave reviews here…altho
I was less impressed.) But if it is generally getting good reviews I suspect many New Brightlife readers may be seeing it. The movie is basically about not preparing for change…a silent movie actor who doesn’t prepare for and adapt to the talkies…to disastrous results…until he is save by “the girl” who gets him to become a dancer not an actor. Unfortunately, 99% of the movie was the”not preparing and adapting to change” and 1% was doing the right thing, and then only with the enabler taking him by hand. Nonetheless, it reinforces the New Brightlife message in a very graphic way.
Hi Jim. Thanks for the thoughts and movie recommendation. I’ve put it on my list to see. Not preparing is disastrously common, and I think 5-10 years from now we’ll be reading about how it is playing out in the lives of real people in the daily press. It will shock us. Of course, really preparing will be a highly agile combination of planning and adaptability. We already know that planning sets direction and adaptability delivers a higher quality of life. Thanks again. George
George – I wanted to thank you for your time and a wonderful career coaching session. It was so refreshing and motivating. I’d like to stress a couple of points, among others, that were very helpful. First, you helped me see my situation in a larger context, which we often let slide out of the view due to being engrossed into the same reality month after month. In light of discouraging job search results, I began to question my competencies. But, the way you put it, I haven’t yet developed this particular self-efficacy for navigating through a hidden job market, and understand the complexity of job search. Secondly, there are pragmatic steps you pointed out in order to develop this self-efficacy belief and become a more competent applicant. Thank you very much. You are a true professional and very personable human being. I appreciate every bit of wisdom that you have shared with me.
Hi Alan. You were a great and able client during our call. You “got it” and knew how to run with it. I enjoyed our work together. What has happened in your job search since our phone call together? Please keep me posted. We can all learn and benefit from your efforts. George
