Pete Hubbard (LWPS Founder) :: Blog :: B1: My LifeWork Details (Template)

July 13, 2006

I don't want to publish a Google Document to a Google Template (GT) until it is at least 40% complete. But I need to publish this one so I can get the GT URL to place in the "(GT)" link of the following GTs.

  1. A: My One Page LifeWork Profile (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM) 288 | 628 60%
  2. B3: My LifeWork ePortfolio (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM) 147 | 24 40%
  3. The LifeWork Planning Roadmap (MV) (GT) 222 40%
  4. Status of 24 LifeWork planning documents/Google Templates (GT) 993

I do NOT recommend you "use"/COPY this GT until it is over 40% complete.

NOTE: This is a work in progress that is about 20% "done" and subject to change.

B1: My LifeWork Details (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM) (LW) (GD) 884 | 462 20% [Legend]

If you are viewing this as LWPS post # 884, please use the exact copy in this Google Template to edit to your needs, and print for your LWP Notebook.

Please read the introduction, then the instructions below before you work on this Google Template (GT). .


Top | Introduction | Instructions | Changes || Tasks | Tools & Technology | Knowledge | Skills | Abilities | Work Activities | Work Context | Job Zone | Interests | Work Styles | Work Values | Occupations | Wages & Employment | Additional Information

Preliminary list of occupations that appeal to me.

  1. Computer Systems Analysts ICR (This is an example. Don't remove until you have completed instructions in step 'g' below.)
  2. .
  3. .
  4. .

Instructions for this "Occupations" section

  1. Please read the General Instructions below, if you haven't already done so.
  2. Please leave the "example" in item 1 in place for the moment.
  3. This is a preliminary list that you will develop over time. You'll expand and prioritize the list later. Later, you will select from these occupations your Top Five (5) Occupations.
  4. If you are interested in any specific occupations now, list it above. Ultimately, I recommend you list at least ten (10) occupations.
  5. Use your top 5 interests to confirm your list of occupations above or to find more occupations to add to your list.
    1. You should have created your top 5 interests in your version of E2: My Top 5 Interests (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM). If you haven't, please do so now.
    2. COPY/PASTE those top 5 interests to the occupation list above. You will use them to search for and identify occupations of interest.
  6. Read this webpage to learn about ONET. ONET is used extensively by career counselors, coaches and millions of people who use CIDS in hundreds/thousands of CareerOneStop centers, schools and libraries across the country. You will be using ONET in the rest of this document.
  7. Use your interests (and occupations) to build up your list of occupations with links to their occurrence in the ONET DB.
    1. Click Computer Systems Analysts here or above to begin your ONET search for each of your occupations.
    2. Find "Occupation Quick Search" in the upper right corner of that ONET webpage. Type in the first occupation or interest from your list above.
    3. Explore the list of ONET occupations and select those that appeal to you and add them to your list above.
    4. COPY the URL in your browser's address box for your selected ONET occupation. It will look like this - http://online.onetcenter.org/link/summary - with an occupation number after it like - 15-1051.00
    5. Highlight your title (E.g. "Computer Systems Analysts") then click on the Google Docs function "Link" to convert your title into a hyperlink (E.g. Computer Systems Analysts) so you can go back to it easily and quickly.
    6. Go to the "Interests" section for your selected ONET occupation (E.g. "Computer Systems Analysts") and find "Interest Code: ???". You'll find "ICR" for "Computer Systems Analysts". Note that ONET uses "Interests" to refer to the Holland Self-Directed Search. Place that Interest Code (E.g. "ICR") to the right of your occupation above. (E.g. Computer Systems Analysts ICR). I'll explain why shortly.
    7. After adding that Interest Code, add anything that stands out about that occupation that will help you decide if it should be included in your Top Five (5) Occupations.
    8. If you have another occupation you are thinking about now or another interest from your top 5 interests, repeat steps g.1-g.8 above.
  8. Review your list of occupations and prioritize your top 5.
  9. Delete these instructions if they are no longer of value to you.
  10. Proceed to the "Instructions for this "Interests" section" below.

  3. COPY your top 5 occupations from your preliminary list above and PASTE them in the list above under the example in item 1.
  4. Click here to read about Holland's Self-Directed Search.
  5. Notice that I have made the Interest Code "ICR" a hyperlink in the item 1 example above. Click on it there or here (ICR). Explore that webpage, then return to the next item below.
  6. Notice that the first letter of the "ICR" Interest Code is "I". It means "Investigative". Go to this ONET webpage and click on Investigative. Then, in the next webpage, click "Go" to get a list of all occupations that have had one of their three (3) character Interest Code classified as "I" ("Investigative").
  7. On that same webpage, go to the 2nd box and select "Conventional" for the 2nd character in that "ICR" Interest Code which is "C". Click "Go" to get a list of all occupations that have had two of their three (3) character Interest Code classified with an "I" and a "C" in either order.
  8. On that same webpage, go to the 3rd box and select "Realistic" for the 3rd character in that "ICR" Interest Code which is "R". Click "Go" to get a list of all occupations that have had their three (3) character Interest Code classified with an "I" and a "C" and an "R" in anyr order.
  9. Reviw all the occpations. If any appeal to you, add them to your list above.

Introduction

This is the second (2nd) most important LifeWork planning document you will create and maintain because it contains all of the details about you and your LifeWork. It is based on many of the other 22 documents listed in B3: My LifeWork ePortfolio (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM) and The LifeWork Planning Roadmap (MV) (GT) and is the basis for your most important document - your version of A: My One Page LifeWork Profile (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM)

The structure of this document - fourteen (14) sections - is copied from the list of 965 ONET occupations. (Source) For example, here are three (3) of those 965 occupations listed in the ONET DB: Computer Systems Analysts, Diesel Mechanic, or Nurse. Click here to learn how to explore the ONET DB for other occupations that may interest you.

You will be (re)defining your LifeWork by developing your version of this B1: My LifeWork Details (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM) (LW) (GD) document.

Please read the General Instructions below.


Top | Introduction | Instructions | Changes || Tasks | Tools & Technology | Knowledge | Skills | Abilities | Work Activities | Work Context | Job Zone | Interests | Work Styles | Work Values | Occupations | Wages & Employment | Additional Information

General Instructions: Please read theses instructions below before you work on this template.

  1. Please read the Introduction above, if you haven't already done so.
  2. If you haven't already done so, create your version of A: My One Page LifeWork Profile (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM) and make the MV in "(MV)" a hyperlink to your version. Click on MV for instructions.
  3. The objective of this document is to collect key information about you adn your LifeWork and copy/paste the most important informaiton to your version of A: My One Page LifeWork Profile (MV) (GT) (PH) (eP) (RM).
  4. When you click on a link in any of the menu bars above (I.e. Tasks) you will be taken to that section in this document. Next to that section title (I.e. Tasks) will be a set off four (4) hyperlinks: (884) (PH) (Comp Systems Analyst) (Web Dev) (... Counselor)
    1. (884) is a link to the Tasks section in the original Google Template.
    2. (PH) is a link to the Tasks section in my (Pete Hubbard's) version of B1: My LifeWork Details
    3. (Comp Systems Analyst) is a link to the Tasks section in ONET's 15-1051.00 - Computer Systems Analysts occupation description
    4. (Web Dev) is a link to the Tasks section in ONET's 15-1099.04 - Web Developers occupation description
    5. (... Counselor) is a link to the Tasks section in ONET's 21-1012.00 - Educational, Vocational, and School Counselors occupation description
      • I chose those three (3) occupations because they most closely align with my LifeWork. When you use the (GT) to make your version of this document, you might want to convert those three (3) hyperlinks to ONET occupations that most closley align with your LifeWork.
  5. Proceed to the instructions in the Occupations section above.
  1. If you have already created your "My Interests" document (from this Google Template) COPY and merge this Google Template into it and rename it to "My Top 5 Interests".
  2. Review your list, reflect upon what interests are most important to you and move them to the top. The first interest will be the one that is MOST important to you AT THIS TIME. The second interest will be th second most important, etc. Expect these interests to change over time and other interests will become more important. That is natural and expected.
  3. Create a Google doc for each of your top 5 interests and write about that interest. COPY the URL for that document, highlight (Select) that interest above, then click on "Link" to make that interest a hyperlink to your document that talks about that interest. Your top 5 interests should always have a Google doc supporting and explaining why this interest is so important to you.
  4. If one or more of your top interests change, keep the link to the story and reorder your top 5 and make sure you have a story for each.
  5. Review, reflect upon and revise your stories as needed. Print them off so you can carry them with you to review and revise.
  6. Print this list and keep it with you so you can write down more interests as you think of them. Edit this digital list to make those changes when you have access to it. Then reprint it.
  7. These instructions and the TOC below are located at the bottom of this document so you can easily print just the top portion to carry with you and file in your LW Portfolio notebook which we will ta to lk about later.
  8. Delete these instructions if you wish.


  1. If Google did not automatically make the title of my document "My LifeWork", edit the title to change it to "My LifeWork".
  2. Over time I will be editing this document to define my LifeWork. The occupation below is not (necessarily) my LifeWork, but has many characteristics of it - or will - over time.
  3. Starting with the first section "Tasks" I will delete every word that does not appeal to me. I will add words or phrases or sentences that describe tasks that interest me. I'll prioritize them.
  4. I'll repeat this for ALL of the sections.
  5. COPY "(When I define my LifeWork, I will type the title here.)"
  6. SELECT the occupation title under "Summary Report for:" and PASTE in what you just copied to you clipboard.
  7. There are other lists you might consider for each section below. COPY each and PASTE it under the appropriate section.  
    1. Under Tasks COPY/PASTE this unpublished GD List 2: My top 5 competencies (tasks) that I enjoy doing
