I keep up on economic news and job news for this blog. I read technical reports and follow trends. I talk to people at conventions and online to find out about their career concerns and fears and successes. I want to be the best at what I do here – being the geek job guru.
I began noticing as I did this there's another motivation coming in there, one some of you may also experience, but not admit.
I want to keep up with things because the world is changing so fast I want to know what is still relevant to people, especially the younger people, I speak to and coach.
