1) STUDY YOURSELF. Get to know yourself. Your REAL self. Who are you? Not your name, or your profession, or your title ... or whether you’re someone’s wife or husband, father or mother, daughter or son. What do you value? What motivates you? Know what is happening in your mind.
2) FORGET YOURSELF. Dōgen Zenji, the founder of the Soto Zen School said, “To study the self is to forget the self. To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things.” If you get to know the contents of your mind, you will begin to forget yourself. Instead of being stuck in your old stories and paralyzing behavior, pay attention to what is right in front of you and you will naturally and holistically act on it or interact with it.
3) BE ENLIGHTENED BY ALL THINGS. Released by the prison of your own small, self-involved set of endlessly repeating thoughts, you are free to engage with all things. Rather than worrying about finding a job or a better job, mindfully engage with what's happening now. You may consider positions you hadn't considered before or see new opportunities to contribute value on your current job.
Start now! Who are you? Who do you want to be? Just asking those questions will prime the pump of the next action.
I was intrigued from the first moment I read the bold claim accredited to Socrates that "the unexamined life is not worth living" and it has been a touchstone throughout my life. And, through the power of hindsight, I see its influence powering many of my career choices and life activities.
