WorkLife Book Of The Week: How To Fine-Tune The Superpower Of Observation

Welcome to WorkLife Book Of The Week. Every week Monday through Sunday I serialise a story from the School of WorkLife book series. I do this each day in under 280 characters, which I post across my social media channels. Then at the end of each week, I bring all 7 daily posts together here as 1 weekly blog post, which I also share on my podcast: WorkLife Book Wisdom.

This week’s WorkLife Book of The Week is: How To Fine-Tune The Superpower Of Observation

This week’s WorkLife Story of the Week is: Three WorkLife Stages Of Observation: The Present, Past And Future.

Carmel’s stories of how she achieved her WorkLife intentions at different WorkLife stages.

Monday

The Present: I want to make a living by combining the knowledge, skills, and experience I’ve gained in my WorkLife as a career coach helping people manage, develop & transition their careers with the learning I’ve gained through my love of the arts. A ‘WorkLife Intention’ I wrote 

Tuesday 

some time ago. Have I achieved it? Yes. But what does the power of observation have to do with this? First a little background: My WorkLife today revolves around creating learning resources: books, courses, guides. And I got here by learning what I needed by simply observing

Wednesday

everyday life. I met people, had conversations, and was observant of their WorkLife stories. I embraced my love of the arts and learnt through my observations. All of this allows me to write real-life WorkLife stories of people’s challenges and successes. Observation got me here. 

Thursday 

The Past: I want to make a living being creative. I want to make doing what I love, and loving what I do a reality. I want to combine my love of the arts, with my love for learning, my own and other people’s. A WorkLife Intention I wrote some years ago. Did I achieve it? Yes. 

Friday

Your greatest challenge can become your driving motivation, to get you to where you want to be. That was certainly true for me. I was extremely nervous talking in front of people, it crippled me with fear. To overcome this I took acting classes. Then I had my eureka moment 

Saturday

of how the unique skills sets artists develop in their craft brings learning alive. And how this is relevant in WorkLife learning because it enables the practice of new skills sets in a safe, supportive, challenging and creative environment. Once again observation got me there. 

Sunday

My New WorkLife Intention: The Future: To create resources that help people live fulfilled WorkLives true to their purpose. To reach people throughout the world through programmes that are accessible to everyone. How will I get there? Though the power of observation of course.

The School of WorkLife book series are designed to help you manage your own WorkLife Learning.

Each book tells real WorkLife stories of the successes and challenges people encountered in their WorkLife. Each book also includes the exercises that helped navigate these situations, which are presented as assignments for you to work through.

The stories I share are based on real life WorkLife situations – case studies of the challenges and successes people experienced in navigating the chapters of their WorkLife Story.

I believe stories are a powerful mechanism for teaching, a powerful medium to learn through, and also a powerful way to communicate who you are and what you stand for.

I hope you enjoy the stories and find them helpful in navigating the chapters of your WorkLife story.
