Getting Your Ticket Punched

Years ago I visited the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and talked to a VP on their staff about the possibility of getting an MBA.

He was a smart guy with lots of experience and he quickly discerned that I did not need an MBA to accomplish my goals. He said, “What you need is a union card.”

Say what?

“A union card,” he went on, “A passport, some credential that gets you into the situation you want to do business in.”

I getcha.

What life situation would you like to explore, what goal would you like to reach that demands some sort of credential…a union card or passport?

And your ticket to success doesn’t have to be tangible, it could be a way of thinking or a decision you make.

Whatever it is it helps you and others understand that you belong.

What would it take to get your passport to the life you want to lead?
