I have been a Soldier in the Military for 17 years. Recently I was recommended to get go through the a Medical Evaluation Board (MEB) process. For those of you who do not know what this is it is basically the Army deciding if a soldier is physically able to continue to serve in the military. I have been avoiding this process for sometime due to injuries that I received while deployed. Since entering the MEB process I have started to think about what I am going to do with the rest of my life.…Continue

Several of you know or at least have heard of - whether you will admit it or not - Jeff Foxworthy, the “You Might Be a Redneck” guy.
Well, I’ve decided to give all this a New York “My Wired Style” spin. So here goes.
You might be D-wired if:
What do you when you think something is going to happen and it seems to be taking longer than you think? I'm in that position right now. I'm almost stumped about what to do next. I don't want to give up, and I won't, but I guess I will have to wait awhile to see my answer...more

The US Veterans' Administration and the Department of Labor combine efforts to provide transition assistance for military members transitioning to civilian life. The program is essentially a lecture series. You are in a classroom with other military members receiving a talk from someone employed by the government to provide the program information. You actually have a checklist that you initial off as the discussion takes place to verify to the government that you have heard the…Continue

There’s a voice that only you can hear. It’s a call to the true value of your life, who you are, who you are meant to be. If you miss it, there will be a hole in this world, a hole you were to fill. But, if you hear it, if you take action, then you will live your life in the sweet spot meant just for you. One which you share with the world. …

Today's failures can be your springboard to tomorrow's success.
I find that I learn each time I take action, no matter the result I learn.
Some lessons are fun.
Some are painful.
But all can serve the purpose of being used as a stepping stone to my next successful action.
Failed lately? Join the club!
And congratulations on moving forward!
Today's failures can be your springboard to tomorrow's…Continue

I've read bits and pieces, listened to Dan's podcast for over a year, and now have my own copies of the books. Now I'm launching my own "480 Days to the Work I'll Love...after the military."
My issue isn't hating my current position and situation, it's that I've had a great run and now am at a crossroads. I can remain on active duty or depart with pride and sense of meaningful accomplishment. I'll know more this fall when I find out if I'll be considered for a command assignment,…Continue

As a career transition coach a high percentage of my clients are experiencing some level of adversity; financial difficulties, unemployment, miserable in their job, etc. They engage a coach for numerous reasons. Perhaps the need is for direction, encouragement, inspiration, accountability or simple know-how. What they may not know is that they are also inspiring.
There’s an old story about a dog laying on a porch groaning for all he’s worth. When a passerby asks the owner what is…Continue
I can leave the military in about 18 months after more than 23 years of service and am considering my options. No bridges are burned, and I really like my current position, but I've radically departed from my original career path (flying airplanes) and am now deeply engaged in combat-like operations in the Pentagon.
I now consider myself on a 448-days to the work I love quest, and am interested in opinions and options. As I said, I'm a pilot and love all things aviation, but am also…Continue

The career transition can be one of the hardest parts of life. People are trying to navigate their course and keep a good attitude at
the same time. People who tend to focus on where they want to go,
usually have a better attitude during career transition. Make the
choice today to smile, be good to a friend, and know that you are
another day closer to your dream career.
Feel free to comment or share with someone who…Continue
