    The furnace of life is where iron turns to steel. This concept you have presented is the concept that we maybe did not know a few decades ago, but took the furnace in stride.

    Marketing and media has showed us away to avoid the furnace. Not really, but prescribes and illusion of avoidance. The secondary effect is that when we look at folks who are undergoing a furnace moment we judge them to be stupid as all they need is one of the media's fixes. Dah!

    This cycle of materialism is challenging the fabric of our society. Your post is on point and we should all welcome the furnace as a growth period in our life.

    Wise words Phil. I recently read a book; The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F***. The title and the colorful language used by the author aside,it made an interesting point; Our problems are our strength builders. Although I, along with most human beings, dream of a life without them, they are what build our character and resilience. No matter the life circumstances; we all have them. The best we can hope for is smaller problems. For instance I would rather deal with a dent from a fender bender than to be fighting for my life from a horrific accident. In other words; be thankful for the dent!

    A beautiful thought, @Phil 🐝 Johnson, MBL and Brand Ambassador @beBee. I think I would trade adversity for some peace of mind anytime, though. Still--when life throws us challenges--we can not help but grow.

    A lot of great advice offered @Simon Gray! I just met with a man last week to interview for a position on a board for Mental Health Awareness. He talked so much (and I listened) but I did walk away thinking, hmmm I think he was either a bit nervous or just very excited to share all that the organization does and their vision for the near future. When he took a breath, I would ask questions. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed meeting with this man. I was also offered a position with the company, they are just waiting for my resume which I've been busy updating this past few days. This is great info because I'm sure I will have another interview!

    Fantastic points @Simon Graysimon I wish all the candidates we interview would read this. I'll share this across.
    You make a very important point of making sure the conversation in the interview doesn't steer away from showing the interviewer our value and what we can do as an employee of the organisation. We need to get into the comfort zone by making sure there is a green signal that this is the right job. This is something I discuss with every candidate before I set up their interviews.

    Many years ago I was explaining to someone that in the Civil Service senior members of staff had a different toilet to the junior staff. He asked was their an actual difference in the facilities. A question I couldn't answer. He suggested perhaps there was a deeper glaze on the porcelain urinals.

    Soft skill or not, problem-solving is essential, especially in tech jobs. Not sure how the white-boarding evaluation tactic helps anyone gauge a candidate's ability to problem solve, however. It's fascinating how far we've gone in terms of defining and deeply understanding the factors of a successful modern worker, and yet how primitive we are in how we evaluate them. Because I don't think problem-solving is the only skill that's grossly under-evaluated in the recruitment process.

    Wow. Due Diligence in business buying is so important. Certainly cash flow and other statements are critical to success, but the boogie man always hids off the balance sheet. Having sold a company and bought one i was schooled by attorneys and business valuation experts. Your story is the horror story they reminded me of during these transactions. Looking forward to moving on.
