Shift Your Mindset
The hard truth is that most of us follow outdated rules and assumptions that undermine our career potential.
Looping is about surprising practices that act as rocket fuel for your career, no matter where you are starting.
Welcome to the practical & actionable guide for answering tough career challenges at work, at school, in teams, and when you don’t know what’s next.
Careers aren’t linear, they’re Loops.
Career-ing is hard. Our path is often unclear and we encounter delightful detours and unexpected obstacles.
You can’t pick the right path for a future that hasn’t been invented yet. But you can master powerful practices to take ownership of your career path, no matter what the future holds.
The key to Looping is the power of micro-projects.
Micro-projects help you move quickly, build momentum, and invite the world to help you discover your next move and make it happen.
Loops Give You Momentum
Looping helps you avoid the anxiety of trying to solve for everything all at once. Start small, focus on what you can control, and gain insights to propel you into the next Loop, like a roller coaster, to build on your new momentum.
Loops Invite Serendipity
Looping captures the importance of following your curiosity, cultivating a growth mindset, and observing how to create value in a way that makes you a magnet for serendipity.
The world of work is changing fast. The antidote to uncertainty and ambiguity is to give the world a pathway to bring you unexpected opportunity.
A Bias To Action
Flip conventional career planning to master a four-step approach that emphasizes action with exploration, discovery, and serendipity.
Step 1. Clarify
Use fun drills to reflect on what you want or are stuck on. Then, clarify your challenge in a way that sets you up for success.
Step 2. Create
Design a micro-project, or select one from our toolkit, to solve your challenge in a way that makes you excited, aims for small wins, and invites serendipity.
Step 3. Connect
Share what you create in a way that invites authentic connections so that the right people can help you make your career goals happen.
Step 4. Consider
Consider what you learned and how you might leverage new insights and connections to start your next Loop and continue your momentum.
