The Myth of the Perfect Path
By Jane Herman

Jane Herman Finding a life and career path that fits who you are and provides what you need and want is a goal worth pursuing. But on your journey of discovery there is a good chance you may encounter a mirage - an image that shimmers brightly off in the distance - an image that seems to embody all that you are after - and one that seems just the guiding light you need to inspire you toward your goal. I call this image "the perfect path." But rather than being the vision you need to draw you forward toward a better future, your image of the "the perfect path" can turn out to be just the opposite - the anchor that holds you back.

"At a recent WITI Boston event, I met a former client from 10 years ago when I worked for another company. We sat together at the meeting and got re-acquainted. Since then, my former client has introduced me to several IT executives at their firm to generate interest in our services, which may lead to new business. This demonstrates that networking and participating in WITI events can have very positive results...both professionally and personally."
