It's All In The Plan

My career, my life, everything -- all neatly penciled out.

Career Management: A formal career-planning process in which employees of a multi-national corporation, working with their manager or managers or other advisers, select career goals and plan developmental activities related to their foreign postings.

First, you find out who you are, if anyone.

Second, you decide where and/or who you want to be (if that is not already taken).

Third, you develop a Powerpoint presentation with lots of checkmarks and arrows and stars on it.

Fourth, you just let it rip. Can't fail. Have a nap and wake up when your new reality is ready to go.

Never fails.

But if it did you could use the skills you develop living abroad to just wander around and have a real life.
