"Designing your Life for Career 2.0" - Lt Col Patrick Hlgendorf

The only thing constant in life is change. After 9 moves and 20 job titles in the Air Force, I thought I was pretty good at adapting to change. Yet transitioning to civilian life introduced a ton of stress as I was finally forced to decide what I wanted to do when I grow up. Instead of feeling liberated, I found myself under pressure to make the perfect choices as I would have live with the consequences of these decisions for the rest of my life. After much soul searching, I stumbled across the “Design your Life” philosophy that recommends using iterative design cycles to navigate towards multiple, equally fulfilling career options. I’d like to share how I applied these principals to design my second career and hope that you might find them useful for your personal life as well.
