Age of Intensity

We're in the age of intensity, according to Sally Hogshead.

What that means I don't know yet cos I haven't read her Radical Careering. But her ideas are found here if you want to read.

I did a career test at http://www.age-of-intensity.com/. Got a score of 120 and was told:

1) Beware average
2) Pull rabbits out of hats, even when there are no rabbits and no hats
3) Jump, and a net will appear

Good radical career advice, don't you think?

Want to be a radical careerist? Consider this, from the author:

"Think back to those times in your career when you've performed at your absolute best, when you blew past expectations and quite simply kicked ass. That's when you were a careerist. A careerist is somebody who takes action to become the most powerful, valuable, and fulfilled version of themselves. Careerists want to kickstart momentum, attack bigger possibilities, and get excited about Monday mornings. When you put that kind of action into your career, it becomes a verb: "careering." Hence the name of the book, Radical Careering. "
