Upcoming Carnival of HR- Game Changing Moments

Originally posted: November 16, 2010 on TrishMcFarlane.com

I was flipping through channels recently and came across a movie I haven’t seen in a long time, The Family Man with Nicolas Cage and Tea Leoni.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s worth the watch.  Nick Cage plays a Wall Street executive who has the best of everything.  But in getting there, he gave up life with the love of his life.  Something strange happens to him and he is suddently thrust into living what his world would be like if he had married her.  Now, he’s a tire salesman in the suburbs with two kids, a slobbery dog, and spends his time on a bowling league.  He’s scraping by.

The movie shows what we have all probably gone through at one time or another.  The review of our life and the what-could-have-beens.  We think about all those defining moments that made us who we are and that changed our path.  With that in mind, I’d like to propose a theme for the November 24th Carnival of HR…..

I’m going to host the Carnival of HR on 11/24 and I want to focus on “Game Changing” moments.

I’d like to hear about the turning point (or 2) in your personal or professional life that changed your path or set you on a course.  I know this writing exercise will be one that will be deeply personal, even if you write about a professional situation.  I hope you’ll consider sharing your story.  I find that when I hear about how other people were influenced is not only intriguing, it is often a way to help others learn valuable lessons.

Won’t you join me?  Email your post submissions to me at TrishM89@gmail.com.  And, if you don’t have your own blog, here’s your chance to contribute!  I’d love to have stories from blogger and non-bloggers.  Spread the word!  Tell your colleagues and your friends.

*Deadline for submissions is 11/22/10
