There's no such thing as job security!

Written by Jer Strausser

Yesterday was a beautiful day here in Pennsylvania, and my fiance' and I decided to take advantage of it. After an hour of drivingrepparttar countryside, we decided to visitrepparttar 109389 cemetary where some of her family members were laid to rest.

Upon arrival, we noticed right away that there were many "new" additions torepparttar 109390 small resting place. Beingrepparttar 109391 entreprenuer I am, I quickly said, "Man, now here's a job that offers job security!" Think about, it'srepparttar 109392 one thing in life that EVERYBODY is going to do!

Quickly changingrepparttar 109393 subject, my fiance' stated that her job offers job security also, because she processes dental claims. "As long as everybody has teeth, I'll have a job", she said, and that was pretty muchrepparttar 109394 end of that....

Until today! As I was sitting at my computer, doing some work, I got to thinking about our little conversation, when it hit me. There is NO such thing as job security!

I know, I know, what about doctors, lawyers, dentists etc, we will always need their services. Well, that's partially true. Although I am not a psychic, I would say that it's pretty safe to assume that we will probably need them also, but let's look atrepparttar 109395 big picture...

Here's a scenario; Jon isrepparttar 109396 local doctor. He is a well respected doctor inrepparttar 109397 area, and seems to have allrepparttar 109398 work he can handle, until one day, he makes an honest mistake, and is sued for malpractice. He loses everything, including his license. Jon is now out of business. This happens more than you might think.

The same advice really applies also to examinations run by any official body which will validate your qualifications.

Setting Your Pace This is whererepparttar 109397 self-tuition student can score an advantage. You are not constrained byrepparttar 109398 set progress of tuition classes.

But be honest with yourself in setting these time objectives.
