    #6 Wise advice Tanja. I agree that wealth is not only money. A colleague talking to MBA students mentioned that passion was especially important when deciding whether or not to join one's family business. For example, joining out of obligation and hating your job can harm the business and your family relationships.

    #2 @Michele Williams thank you for your question. It doesn't matter which job you choose, you can be a chef, a football player, sales assistant or financial management. If you don't like your job, it is difficult to be good at, even if you work as sales manager and you are not good at, you will not earn a lot of money. Meanwhile the best chefs can gain a lot of money when they do their job with passion and 100% dedication. It is ridiculous to force yourself doing a job you hate; it is not good neither for you, nether for the people surrounding you. I strongly recommend following your passion and talent. Wealth is not only money but also personal satisfaction and happiness.

    We don't often do the simplest thing which is to deal with people as a human being, instead we have policy makers and then we force fit the human being through a prescribed prescription, and often my angst at human resource practices is at this most simplest level. Human as a resource then stops being human as a being and meaning flies away, leaving the mean, and thus our organizations actually contribute to a mean world, rather than a meaningful world.

    @Sara Jacobovici- I shared this buzz on three hives not because I am only honored to have a mention in it, but also of its deep meanings. You completed the Golden Circle by writing "But if you define the criteria as, the individual can demonstrate that he or she is able to take initiative, then you are able to produce the best because you understand how and under what circumstances the individual can thrive". The why is answered promptly by the understanding how and then what to extract the best out of people. It is not only the simple rule; now, I also believe it is the simple rules of asking as well.
    This is a buzz you can be proud of for long times.

    Sure enough, I went to comment on LI first and this post is nowhere to be found in my feed. Which is a shame, as this is a work story that needs to be shared. We are often our own worst enemies and discount our chances based on biases that may be personal or outdated.

    A strong work portfolio is what matters and the world of employment is really starting to understand that humans - who have family and health reasons to take a break from work - aren't damaged goods in any way.

    In fact, after a sabbatical of any kind - you are looking at a person who is very eager to demonstrate just what they can do - and they show up with a renewed energy and a realistic perspective on the human condition that will serve them well as they navigate the inter-personal relations necessary in any job.

    Great true-story write-up @Lynda Spiegel - I do hope the word keeps circulating. Careers encompass all work, paid and unpaid, and doing different things does not make someone a pariah, rather it means that they bring a unique perspective that can really add to their insights and abilities.

    Donna, I can't agree with you on the trend to large MNCs. The large organizations are so dysfunctionally wasteful they can't possibly survive. The trend I'm seeing is the entrepreneurial spin-off where the smart adaptive element of large organizations is refactoring them and devolving power from the inside. It is happening in government as well. The last bastion of command and control based organizational structure is being cracked by the NGO's that are closer to the communities of need and devolution is being demanded and is starting to emerge. Social licence is driving this. The community is demanding respect of their rights and will drive this very quickly.

    #6 You bring up some interesting points @Jerry Fletcher. Big data and information architecture is playing a huge role in the design of the future. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out. I think in the corporate world, smaller corporations are going to be absorbed into large MNCs or they won't survive. This will have a direct effect on employment opportunities in the future on every level. I think we are already beginning to see the shift in this direction. Corporate opportunities are going be slim pickings in the future, with niche entrepreneurship being the back bone of society.

    Combined with the projections for the built environment it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Where will these folks want to live as cities become more dense and multi family housing replaces parking lots and robot cars make commutes faster so living further from city centers becomes lower cost and more convenient? Where will infrastructure and societal shifts intersect?
