Friends for Life!

When I was making yet another career change a number of years ago, a colleague said he was afraid we would lose touch. I promised him we would be "friends for life." Almost 15 years later, that pledge is still being kept.

Your career is more than the accomplishments on your resume. It is more than the number of connections on LinkedIn. Most of us devote so much time and energy to our careers. We may spend more time with our colleagues than with our families. Those work relationships can be so rewarding, though, if we nurture them for their own sake, not just for how they can advance our agenda. Your life will be immeasurably enriched when the people you work with become friends for life. Mine certainly has.
