Inspiring Success in Many

The Age of Melancholy?

Leave a comment

Picture 954Have you ever realized that when you reach your birthday, lets say 50, that you have actually started your 51st year. Yep, I can thank my dad for that sobering realization. When you hit your birthday you are celebrating the anniversary of that year.


Don’t you think this would make a great T-Shirt? So why if we all share in this human experience are we not better at the aging process? So many are so sad over the fact that life is changing and will never be what it once was. Is a melancholy tone the tone we want to create for our children, our children’s children. I think not. With the aging Baby Boomers population we are running this risk.

A little skill development would come in handy here. What skill you ask? Let’s start with the ability to learn new things. Many people have lost this ability. When this happens the world starts to close in around them. If this is you, stop now and pick something new to learn. It could be anything just needs to be new. If your life “practice” is continually learning new things there is always something to look forward toward. And if what you have falls apart you will be well equipped emotionally to move on to the next great thing, albeit a new job, house, dog, area, or relationship.

Charlotte A. Byndas started her career in the search industry in 1993 just as the industry was embracing the technology revolution that would change the very DNA of executive recruiting. In 1994 she lead efforts to automate one of the most successful franchise offices of Management Recruiters International, building their first contact management system and website. Over the next few years she successfully launched and managed several new recruiting companies servicing the IT, manufacturing, healthcare, IT, accounting, insurance, engineering, sales, and non-profit industries. In 2002 she turned her efforts toward helping individuals launch and build independently owned recruiting companies helping to close over $30 million system wide, earning her countless testimonials labeling her “recruiting ninja” and “recruiting “guru”. Launching Search Entrepreneurs Inc, and TheITRecruiters she helped develop the first anti-franchise model in the recruiting industry as well as an innovative "candidate first" approach to IT recruiting.
