    What’s Next on Baby Boomers’ To-Do Lists? Time to Think About Our Succession PlansI admit to being a task-oriented type of guy, despite being known for generating ideas and preferring the big-picture over details.

    @Richelle Futch An excellent article with great tips especially No. 2 I see too many people both military and civilians post their being away from home on social networks. This is just plain stupid, letting crooks know you and your property are less protected.

    #5 I think it's great that you think all of this through, it has to be very hard on the spouses. Sending good thoughts your way and to your husband who is the Military, hats off to him- literally!

    #4 Lisa, you are great! Thank you so much. We have had deployments where the first thing we do is go surprise his parents and other's where he tells his family he is coming home 2-3 days after his return date (his choice). It is pretty easy to accommodate everyone if people plan accordingly. Brian's comment did not seem to fit the content of the article, thank you for sharing his pattern. It did come across as someone 'projecting'.

    @Richelle Futch, thank you for your honest words. I have family members in the Military but it's always good to hear from the spouses because people probably mean well but have no clue how this does affect you mentally as well. If your Inlaws want to see their son, it would be good to arrange the date and time. I'm sure they go through emotions that aren't talked about as well. I know if my son were in the Military and had been overseas for quite some time, I would want to see him as soon as he and his spouse gave me the A-OK. Now that I have grown children I realize we innately are hard wired to be parents no matter how old our children are. I would however, never show up to his home without asking, I understand the relationship between husband and wife, I respect it. Keep blogging, maybe it will help others who are in similar situations as yours or help family members and friends to understand what it is you need and don't want. Pay no attention to Brian below, he loves to try and make women feel bad... seems to be a pattern with him. Just ignore his comment.

    What they also never say is the infidelity rate when soldiers are deployed abroad or sailors are out on cruise. It is the dirty little 'secret' that everyone on base and out in the nearby surrounding town knows, but nobody is saying word one.

    I have four active blogs. I, myself, blog on as many topics as possible. My goal is a 3 step process. Build an audience, make leads, create sales. My blog is only a type of funnel. 80% of my articles are focus to my target market. Yet, on my largest blog, I also write about topics from gaming, politics, recipes, movies, etc. This makes the funnel bigger. While someone is visiting on of these other post, my goals is for them to browse my collection. Since I large amount of content now, these small categories now have a large amount of content in their own.
    Your Blog articles are like the movies at a theater. Your capture page is the the sales ticket, and your product is the popcorn. Your goal is not to market your popcorn, yet your movies, so people keep wanting to return.

    Once you start to use critical thinking (thinking how both sides respond ), you will value how powerfully and deeply you'll prepare all phases of your job search. Then sharing your accomplishments is adding value because understand how and why others do.

    This is a great buzz @Wayne Yoshida. I love that you used "It's a Wonderful Life," as an example to reflect. There are many of us that have a hard time targeting what our strengths are because many of us do underscore what we do or have done, agree! I love the exercises, very helpful to anyone seeking employment. Thanks for sharing the tips!

    #10 Thanks Phil - and you are right - this technique is useful in many situations, including holiday - family - friends gatherings. Another exercise I suggest is to take the power stories and then simplify them so your grandma would understand what you do for a living. Too many people have a difficult time describing what they do to strangers - so how can people help them if they don't understand what the heck you do?

    Wayne, excellent article, especially your point about seeing one's working history in terms of outcomes. It will be very useful not only to those seeking employment but to those working on presentations and proposals for contract and consulting work. Cheers!

    #4 Thanks for your comment, Michele -- glad you noticed the exercise. This helps people think about what they did in a different way, Many times the one-liner that comes out of the 3 column thing is too long - and can be broken up into more than one "power story."

    #1 Thanks for your comment, Randy - I agree. This stuff really works, but it is not easy. And I strongly agree a lot of employers these days need to brush up (lack of a better term) on describing expectations.

    Wonderful story @Phillip Hubbell! What you did first in your story, I followed you on that and skipped the Physics and thoroughly enjoyed the experience that changed your ways. In the second go, I'll focus on the technical terms you used, and then I may be calling you :-). You provided me the opportunity to know a legend like Dr. Nettleton. Thanks for sharing!
