What Is
Life In Fast Forward?
Welcome to the online home of me, some guy given the name John Cleveland Payne. In the grand scheme of life, I am just another guy with another blog. But to myself, and hopefully to all of you who actually read this, I am something a little more special. From a young age, I fell in love of the idea of ‘the message’ and medium in which you try to transmit.

Basically, everyone has a message to give to the world. Some are basic, some complex, some have the power to up lift and some are just out there to bring as many people down as possible. But everyone has a message, and most people have problems identifying their message. And the ones who get that far can seem to figure out how to get the world to listen.

Well, I have a message, and this is where I will get a chance to share it. Hopefully, you’ll get plenty of things to keep you motivated or inspired, provide knowledge and comfort, and just have a little fun. Apologies for the state of flux and state of seemingly confusing messages that you’ll get here for a while, as I am doing a lot of personal soul searching, and scrubbing of old ideas to take the best of the past to build a new beginning.

In 2007, I changed the name of blog from “The Mis-Adventures Of The Jazzy Cool One” to “Life In Fast Forward.” I began to tear down old blogs and newsletters and try to find places for them here. My goal is to take the focus off of me the person, and show the world the life I live and share with every human on the planet. I aspire to life at a very high standard, and instead of dealing with people who rather slow us down, I want to find ways to help people pick up there own pace. As you get to see an insight to the further adventures I hope to lead, hopefully you’ll enjoy the ride, and want to come along.

Taking Your New Year Career Audit Halfway Through The Year
Saturday, July 12, 2008
Cross Posted To Cool Corporate dot COM.

I came across Joan Lloyd article's “Career Audit for a New Year” as I was clearing out some old and duplicate files on my computer this morning. It had a great set-up of re-evaluating your mental job contract with your employer, whether there has been major change or not, just to see if you are still the right person for your own job, or if you should start the process of moving on.

There is just one flaw in the New Year time frame. A regularly scheduled audit of your career can be the key to help you maintain your career goals and your sanity. But when do you usually schedule your career audit?

If you are like most people, you set yourself for you annual dreaded time of reflection at the traditional end or beginning of something. For most, that means Christmas time reflections and New Year's Resolutions, where you swear you will take time to sit down and patiently go through your last 12 months in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the over-commercialized holiday season. No, this is not really a good time.

So how about right now? Yeah, right now, in the middle of the summer, just about SIX MONTHS into the year that is and before the year to come, where the only burdens weighing you down are to much potato salad at the 4th of July picnic and how to cut down on use of air conditioning. Waiting around until right now, in the slow days of the summer time could be just the right time to get away from yourself (and possibly get away from the trappings and distractions of work and life for a short period of time) and do a true evaluation of your live and career.

So take a weekend, take a deep breath, and take the time to sit and go through this list. And for more information on how Joan Lloyd & Associates can help you out, visit their website at http://www.JoanLloyd.com.
