20多岁最重要的投资

别把你的20多岁浪费给谷歌和麦肯锡--转载自领英中国

作者:Raj De Datta,BloomReach(2014美国年度创意公司)公司的创始人和CEO。

在你二十几岁的职业生涯里最该追寻的什么?赚大钱?或者是设法给简历里加上一个大公司的经历?事实上你最该寻求的,是找到自己的职业方向。

正如白手起家的企业家吉米罗恩(Jim Rohn,美国杰出的商业哲学家)曾说过的:  “时间是我们最宝贵的资产,但是我们却浪费时间,打发时间,而没有去投资时间。”

在二十几岁时明智投资你的时间,那么之后你可以尽早从事自己所喜爱的事情,而不是在心里怀疑自己可能会喜欢什么。所以你该问自己的真正问题是:我要如何在有限时间内最大程度地了解自己?自己对什么会产生真正的兴趣?然后,你才知道自己需要实现什么职业目标,知道自己想要成为什么。

针对这个问题——你不该去一家大型科技公司工作。不幸的是,要做到这个还挺不容易。像谷歌这样的大型科技公司会实行校园招聘,你一出校门可能就会直接进了这些公司。薪水可观,福利看起来很诱人(免费的食物提供,还有机会见到希拉里克林顿或者波诺之类的名人),品牌也十分具有吸引力。你不少朋友也在这样的公司工作,所以在某种程度上也形成一个圈子,有社会舒适度。这样的工作机会看起来像清晰的台阶,能够领你到其他许多地方。

问题是,你的学习曲线增长其实慢得令人难以置信。如果你是一个工程师,你大多会为一个大型项目工作,而这个项目很可能和个人业务成果无关。如果在这样的公司里你是一个产品经理,你不会像一个真正产品经理一样面对重要的挑战(在缺乏各方条件的境况下创建出一种无比优秀的产品)。如果你是一个销售人员,你不会清楚你的业绩到底是归功于你的努力还是只是品牌本身。

从根本上来讲,你的学习曲线很慢,进步也很慢。就算你培养了一定能力,能够引导大型组织或者处理好人际沟通,这也并不能推动你去发掘智力和情感的最大潜能。

问问自己这样一个问题:我的加入能给这家大公司的前景带来改变么?答案是否定的。同时你学到的东西都显得不太起眼。最终的结果可能是,你可能稍微赚的多一点,但是却不太了解自己,相比你在创业公司或成长型公司里工作的朋友们,你可能已经落后不少了。

大型服务性企业如麦肯锡、高盛,看起来也是超级有吸引力的机会,薪水更是十分可观。他们能给你提供机会在不同项目(咨询工作)、不同交易(投行工作)间切换周旋。你能游走全世界;有机会可以和高层交流互动。但问题是,90%在这些大型服务企业工作的员工都存在这样问题:他们的职业生涯被固定在了既定路线,而不是自己的路线。

如果你学到的技能可以帮你认识到自己,那倒还好,可是我所认识的咨询师与银行家却在加入大公司后越发疑惑自己想要的生活是什么。项目的多样化反而带来了困扰。

当然你也能培养一些很好的辩证思维——记住,作为一个咨询师或银行家,最基础的本领是堆砌PPT和Excel表格、提出意见、做汇报演讲,而不是实施什么具体事项。你学习的主要是技巧方面(这只是生活的5%),却学不到其他更重要的方面。

在我二十几岁时,我花了两年时间在一家大型服务型公司工作(瑞德集团,全球最著名的精品投资银行之一),之后又花了三年待在一家大型科技公司(思科)。但这些都远远比不上我在一个初创公司(作为创始人之一)——FirstMark Communications 三年学到的关于自己和关于自己想要的道路。FirstMark很疯狂,上世界九十年代后期我们建立了一个宽带网络,旨在为整个欧洲提供高速互联网接入。这就像一个经典的电信行业泡沫故事,但筹集了十亿资金,雇佣了600多员工,与十余个国家间的政府监管部门打交道,和亨利·基辛格交流互动,建立了光纤网络,还想把整个星球连接起来。我们搞砸了太多事情,但是也成就了不少事情。这是改变我人生的一段经历。

在开始创办FirstMark前,我被商学院录取了,同时还身兼工程师和投行银行家两个职位,我非常不确定自己想要怎样的生活。如果去了商学院学习,我说不定还会更加困惑。我最后选择了创办FirstMark,这也成为了我二十几岁时最浓墨重彩的一笔。

我知道了我想成为一个企业家,更重要的,这给了我勇气和自信。前两个月我学到的东西就比我在另外两家企业两三年学到的还多。创业的竞争压力、发挥空间、还有许许多多疯狂的事情,我都很热爱。我明晰了我未来的人生道路将是对创业的追求。

有趣的是,我创业时的工作伙伴有一些和我的追求不一样,有的回到了华尔街,有的去了大型科技或通讯企业,还有的回到了学校工作。但他们都找到了自己想要的职业道路。

如果你在二十几岁时去一个初创公司工作,你的学习曲线会变得很快速。这将是你对自己最好的投资。那些在自己二十出头、还不清楚自己对什么感兴趣时加入BloomReach的人们后来找到了自己想要的是什么——成为业务拓展人员、创业者、产品经理或者人力资源经理。他们为什么能够很快就找到道路?业务发展的步伐推动要求所致。

你可能会担心要是新公司失败了怎么办。放松,你现在应该还没有孩子,可以随时搬到朋友家挤挤住一阵子。而且我向你保证——科技企业里最具雇佣价值的就是27岁左右、积极性很高(最好有一定技能)的人。所以如果你的初创公司没成功也不用担心,你会有更多的机会,并且你还很清楚地了解自己。

Buy Air Max 1 John Daniels

A senior officer in the ‘A’ Division Traffic Department and a high level City Constabulary rank are at odds, following the arrest of several Route 32 (Georgetown/Parika) minibus operators and the subsequent impounding of their vehicles.Deputy Superintendent in charge of Traffic, ‘A’ Division, John Daniels, and the Assistant Superintendent of the City Constabulary, Stephen Bailey, have taken separate stances concerning the crackdown on ‘hot plate’ minibuses on Tuesday night, last.The minibuses remained at the police station all day yesterday.  According to Daniels,Air Max 95 Sale, the police moved on the minibuses after receiving several complaints, among which were that the minibuses were not occupying their designated park. The minibuses were apparently ‘running the hot plate’ and circling the Stabroek Market area and picking up passengers, instead of waiting and loading in their designated park.Supt. Daniels said that the complaints came from both commuters and business entities in the Stabroek Square area. “They are complaining that the route 32 buses are always in the habit of going and collecting and setting down passengers (in areas where they are not designated to). There is a park for them behind the fire station,” said Daniels.He made it clear that the minibuses are supposed to load and offload their passengers in the designated minibus parks.“They will keep spinning (around the Stabroek Market) and sometimes load and offload passengers in the Banks DIH parking area,” said Daniels. After being warned by the police, Daniels said that the operators would comply for a short period of time before going back to their usual, and illegal, practice of loading and offloading passengers out of the designated area.Due to this, the minibus operators, whose vehicles were detained at the Brickdam Police Station, were charged with breaching their Road Service Licences.The problem of these route 32 minibuses ‘running the hot plate’ apparently stems from an alleged fiasco between a few of the minibus operators and the City Police.Daniels alleged that Assistant Superintendent of the City Constabulary was involved in a racket where a few minibuses were brought up to the Constabulary (which is at the front of the Route 32 minibus line of buses being loaded) and the drivers of those minibuses taken into the Constabulary building.As the drivers are in the building, under investigation, the minibus touts load the minibuses.According to the Deputy Superintendent in charge of Traffic, ‘A’ Division, if and when the traffic police come by and query what the minibuses are doing parked there, without drivers, the City Police apparently tell them that they are investigating the drivers and the traffic police continue their duties.When the minibuses are loaded, the drivers are released and they get into their loaded minibuses and continue out of the Stabroek Market. “So it creates a problem and a disenfranchisement for other drivers. This is what causes the spinning of the other minibuses,” said Daniels.Bailey said that he knew nothing of this, and denied all of the allegations brought against him by Daniels. Further, Bailey said that he found the allegations surprising, since both he and Daniels sit on the Street Vending Committee, a committee that deals with street vending and parking in Georgetown, and Daniels had never mentioned anything concerning the matter,Nike Free Run Shoes On Sale, “either personally or professionally.”He added that the two see each other on a regular basis, at the committee meetings.Concerning the allegations that he may have been involved in the racket,Air Max Zero Sale, Bailey said, “I could,Air Max 95 Black Leather, using the same reasoning as Mr Daniels, suggest that members of the police force are acting in collusion with these delinquent minibus operators, but I would never say such a thing.”In the face of these problems, Bailey said that he thought that some dialogue between the City Constabulary and the Police Traffic Department was necessary.On the other side of the coin stand the minibus operators, who yesterday spoke to this newspaper outside of the Brickdam Police Station. They claim that they were not ‘running the hot plate.’They allege that the reason their minibuses were held was because they refused to pay monies to the Zone 32 Minibus Association.The minibus operators said that this ‘self-styled’ minibus association is demanding that each minibus pays $140 per trip it makes from the Stabroek Market route 32 minibus park. The drivers who were detained at the Brickdam Police Station have said that their minibuses were targeted because they refused to pay this money.Speaking to one of the founding members of the association, James Sandial, this newspaper was made to understand that the association was trying to get the minibuses to enter and utilise the minibus park in an orderly fashion.The association also employs the services of a warden, Mohammed Kassim, who records which minibuses enters the park, in what order. He also attempts to ensure that the minibuses do not cut the line of minibuses waiting to load, at the park.He also collects $140 from each minibus each time they enter the park. Not all of the minibus operators are paying the money which is being asked of them, because they said that they do not see the association as being legitimate.These operators said that Kassim was recording the licence plate numbers of minibuses who did not pay the $140. The list of names, which Kassim made,Cheap Nike Air Max 2018, said the operators,Nike Air Max Zero White, was then passed to members of the police force, who then detained the minibuses on that list.Answering these allegations, the Deputy Superintendent in charge of Traffic, ‘A’ Division, said that he knew nothing of this. He maintained that the minibuses which were detained were held for loading and unloading passengers outside of their park.“We are not looking after turn systems, or who runs a park,” said Daniels. “A park is provided. So I told the officers, go and bring all of the buses that spin.”He said that he met with the operators, whose minibuses were impounded, and told them that he knew nothing of anyone taking money to enter the minibus park. “There is a park provided,Cheap Nike Air Max Shoes, you must go into the park and stay there and operate from there,” Daniels told the minibus operators.Further, Daniels said that the police were prosecuting the operators for the complaints that they had received and for what the police had observed them doing. “The spinning is getting out of hand,” said Daniels, as he added that some time soon, the police would take legal action against minibus touts for soliciting passengers.Nonetheless, many of the route 32 minibus operators said that they thought it to be strange that only route 32 minibuses had been detained when other minibuses also ‘run the hot plate.’

Local Govt. Elections…From all accounts, the proposed final attempt by Head of State,wholesale jerseys, Bharrat Jagdeo, to have the political stakeholders arrive at a consensus to facilitate the holding of Local Government elections is yet to begin.When Jagdeo had made the announcement, he was asked whether there was a timeline attached to this final attempt he said that would be determined by the parties meeting on the issue but this meeting is yet to happen.Leader of the Opposition, Robert Corbin, is out of the country and the Alliance for Change is yet to be formally approached on the issue.It is also unclear to some, what manner this new attempt will take,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, namely, will there be a task force-like approach or will it be completed in the Select Committee, which is currently stalled in light of the parties’ representatives’ inability to reach consensus.Jagdeo in a recent press briefing expressed what he called a sad state of affairs in that a taskforce took eight years and failed to have the reforms come to fruition.He said that he had met with Leader of the Opposition, Robert Corbin, and it was decided that they would make another attempt to provide the opportunity to see that the reforms become a reality but he could not give a timeline.According to Jagdeo,NFL Jerseys Outlet, the move was as a result of the fact that the administration wanted to approach the 2010 General Elections with some level of civility.The opposition parties subsequently expressed a willingness to work with the administration to have consensus.Corbin had told this newspaper that the players are planning to engage at a Parliamentary level in an effort to ensure that the matter is resolved, and they are willing to work with everyone involved, including those groups, who in the past, were not a part of the process before.Echoing his sentiments was Raphael Trotman, Leader of the AFC,Cheap NHL Jerseys, who said that the AFC was also ready and willing to participate in the process both on the basis of good faith and out of respect for the constitution.He added that it would be of great benefit to the various parties involved if more of the pertinent stakeholders were invited to the sessions, specifically GECOM as well as other representatives of civil society.In terms of a possible timeline,Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping, Corbin emphasised that his party is not talking about a timeline at present but if those involved have the necessary political will,NFL Jerseys Wholesale, the reforms could be implemented in the window of opportunity available.Trotman was more direct, stating that if participants were willing to work, the matter could perhaps be laid to rest by the end of July to allow the Local Government Elections to be carried out before the General Elections in 2011.The reforms were the objective of a task force set up in March 2001,Wholesale Authentic Jerseys, specifically for the purpose of addressing the issue of vesting the citizenry with greater power at the Local Government level.
