Recently, our ENGAGE marketplace ministry for YP’s (Young Professionals) hosted our monthly Gathering. Chuck Hyde, CEO of The Soderquist Center was our featured “mentor” to share with these up and coming marketplace leaders.
Chuch shared a provocative message and answered questions on “Four Principles to Guide Career Decisions“. I encourage you to listen to it here on our website.
Chuck also showed a powerful video of an interview with Andy Murray, who is the Worldwide CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi X. He shared a powerful perspective that really grabbed me. He talked about when things come into your life or work, the question to ask is “how does this fit, NOT does it fit.” You can watch Andy Murray on “Life is a Mosaic” here.
If you are a “learning leader”, you can camp on this blog for a while, soaking in the wisdom and experience shared from these leaders on Career Decisions.
Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
