Your Career is an Extreme Sport

October 7th, 2006
your career is an extreme sport

Your Career Is An Extreme Sport: Focus. Drive. Excel. by Eileen P. Gunn says in order to succeed in your career you need a new attitude–and new equipment.

Forget the old rules of career advancement. The company man has left the building-and he took his gold watch with him. Today’s employees are free agents on the fast track.Your Career Is an Extreme Sport shows how to apply the principles of extreme sports-such as drive, stamina, flexibility, and guts-to achieve extreme career success. Filled with advice from careerists who have reached professional nirvana, this contrarian guide shows readers how to get beyond the ho-hum career comfort zone to reach their professional peak.

Essential career gear for employees looking to make the leap, Your Career is An Extreme Sport is an adrenaline-charged antidote to methodical, touchy-feely career books. After all, today’s workplace demands a bungee cord…not a parachute. [...]

Some quotes of Taking the job to extremes, by Patricia Kitchen :

Extreme sports are about looking fear in the face. [...] Extreme sports athletes aren’t “daredevils with a death wish” but people who “made concerted efforts to minimize the dangers.”.

And, therein, she says, lies a key skill applicable to the work world: analytical prowess. There’s also focus, psychological stamina, risk tolerance, self-reliance and individuality.

Extreme sports provided coping skills that help them face the unexpected – “a perception of control in a hostile world.”

There’s an element of danger in such sports. Indeed, “there’s a danger factor in anything in life,” says Joseph Coleman, 21, a senior at Long Island University’s C.W. Post Campus. He heads the extreme sports club, where activities include snowboarding, skiing, white-water rafting, kayaking and rock climbing.

And the presence of danger is exactly the point, he says: To minimize it, people must first learn the basics – the first of which is “how to fail to hurt yourself.” Coleman, a math-education major, says the qualities such athletes develop – confidence, drive, enjoyment of accomplishment – can be transferred not just to a career but to any area of life.

Award for brave rollerblading heroes in UK

October 5th, 2006

quoting Rob Robertson :

Heroic rollerblading teenagers from Kilmarnock, a plucky Edinburgh pensioner, a Glasgow shop owner, and an 11-year-old Clydebank schoolboy were among scores of people honoured yesterday by First Minister Jack McConnell for acts of bravery.

Police officers from all over Scotland gathered at Edinburgh Castle to pay tribute to the heroes who, in some cases, put their lives on the line to prevent crime.

Mr McConnell said: “Every year I am inspired by the bravery and courage of individuals across Scotland. When I hear how they have acted instinctively to tackle often dangerous criminals, I am proud of their decency and selflessness.

“They are ordinary people like you and me. They are various ages and they come from many different backgrounds but their bravery sets them apart. In the face of danger they showed real courage. This year’s heroes are a credit to themselves, their families, and their communities. We all owe them our thanks.” [...]

Other young heroes included Aaron Finn, 16, and Shaun Quinn, 17, from Kilmarnock who pursued a man armed with a knife who had robbed a woman.

Aaron said: “Along with our friends Martin Higgins and Graeme Strachan, we were rollerblading when we saw the woman being attacked. We sped towards her and I looked after her when my friends chased after the man on their rollerblades.
“He cut across some gardens and got away but we provided the police with a full account of the incident and I identified the culprit from a series of photographs.” [...]
