8/4 (Sat.) Talk about our passion (Host: Debby)

文章Debby wu » 週三 8月 01, 2018 11:59 pm

Hi, I'm Debby, the host of this Saturday. After finding a job, I try to design my life blueprint. Here're some topics about our life. Let's recall our twentysomethings.

- Session one -
Clinical psychologist Meg Jay gave 3 pieces of advice for how twentysomethings can re-claim adulthood in the defining decade of their lives.

TED:Why 30 is not the new 20
https://www.ted.com/talks/meg_jay_why_3 ... the_new_20

1. The speaker suggested the twentysomethings to use the weak ties. Have you get a chance because of weak ties?
2. In your opinion, what is the most important in 20s,30s and 40s? Why?
3. If someone gives you some advice like Meg, Clinical psychologist, would anything change in your life?
4. Do you think the theory of the speaker is suitable for 40', 50' and 60'?


-Session two -
This session is about passion. If you find any interesting articles, welcome to share with us.

10 Life Purpose Tips to Help You Find Your Passion
http://jackcanfield.com/blog/finding-life-purpose/

This test includes 10 questions. Perhaps it will help you to find your true passion.
https://www.psychologies.co.uk/test-wha ... ue-passion


1. Do you have the passion for your job? How do you keep the passion? If no, what support you to do this job?
2. When we are tired of our jobs, how do we tell the reason? or How do we know if we are losing the passion or lacking of the ability?
3. If you can choose your major again, which one would you choose? What kind of expertise would you like to share or teach, such as handicraft or photo-taking?

I learned from the video in my job-seeking period. Besides, I am interested in a technology company. My major is international business. Having foreign experience as an exchange student in Czech makes my twentysomethings different. If there's any chance I can grab, please let me know. I deeply appreciated your kindness.

Hi Debby,

Nice choice of the topics. They are perfect orientation courses for twenty-somethings. I wish I had watched or read something like these and had done enough exploration or inner search to find myself in my 20s. That would have stood me in better stead when I turned 30.

The 30-is-the-new-20 phenomenon results partly from longer schooldays and later first job experiences. Nowadays most people view it basic to have a master degree; young adults generally don’t start working until 24 years old – part-time jobs or internship don’t really count. Men of my generation in Taiwan faced the double whammy of another two-year mandatory military service. That put off the launch of our career until the age of 26. We were late arrivers to the party and the mid-night bell was bound to ring soon. In my case, I had to make a major life decision on marriage within the first year of the career. It took me eight years to finally settle my career path. By that moment I was already 34, almost missing the boat, didn't I?

Talking about the boat, it took me another 10 years to get on board comparing with my coworkers. Now the boat is leaning and tilting; may even capsize and sink in the future. The good news is: we won't die because of these shit things. So no worry la... :lol:

Hi Rock,
I feel it beneficial for teachers to have certain years of job experiences in other fields before starting their educational career. You were in fact ahead of, not behind, your colleagues on boarding the boat.

Rock, I'm still finding a job. I'm interested in a sales in technology company. If there's any chance, I'm glad to grab it.
