Dear THALIA,

This past week brought some of the worst economic news I’ve heard in some
time. Each day the stock market went lower, reports of layoffs went up,
and speculation on all fronts pointed to an upcoming recession. President
Bush pushed for an economic stimulus package and it seems as though that’s
one thing he and the Congress will work together on. As my good friend
and accountant Ken Savell told me the other night, “You know there’s a
serious issue when BOTH Democrats and Republicans agree there’s an
economic crisis.”

Now I’m not one to push bad news on you, but on the other hand, we all
need to keep our eye on the trends. Just like those Meerkats in Africa
stand tall and silent, listening for danger when they sense a lion nearby,
we also must be on the lookout so we can better position ourselves when
economic times get tough.

As you look at your employment and work situation this week. Be sure to
consider the following:

1. Do the very best job you can. You have no control of your job
security from the company point of view. You do however has a
responsibility to work as hard and efficiently as you can. Even if you
know layoffs are coming, do what you can to add value. You may be spared
if layoffs come, and if not, you’ll look more valuable to a potential
employer if you’re ready to hit the ground running for them.

2. Keep your eye out for opportunities. This may be the time to do a
career change into a field that’s up and coming or may be one that’s
valuable during economic downtimes. I love training and development, but
I also know those are the first functions to be cut in a financial crisis.
This year I’m focusing on outplacement work and coaching – an industry
that’s viable during downtimes.

3. Be optimistic! Certainly the signs are pointing down for the economy,
but could recession be a self-fulfilling prophecy? Absolutely. If we
react as if the recession is coming, both in planning and spending, one
will surely follow. Be prudent with your resources, but don’t paralyze
yourself either.

I’m convinced that regardless of the situation, we can all be extremely
successful now and in the coming years. After all, during the Great
Depression, there were still people driving fancy cars, going to the
country club, and eating in fine establishments. Nothing says we have to
put our dreams and aspirations on hold. This week, pick your chin up and
be as effective and efficient as you can at work and send double the
effort into planning your future goals and accomplishment. 2008 can still
be the best year ever for you!

Towards your Total Career Fitness,
Malcolm
