Your personal assets make up your “identity capital.” Think of this capital as more colorful than a resumé and more complicated than a brand. Your identity capital includes all your experiences over a period of time: your education, your job, your hobbies, and even what you post on social media.
When you’re at a crossroads in your life or your career, go for the opportunity that will help you build the most identity capital. What does your next vacation say about you as a person? How will a given experience help you achieve your future goals? Always think about the big picture.
Geared towards twentysomethings but with advice that applies to all walks of life, The Defining Decade has everything you need to know about building your identity capital. You’ll find it with the new releases in the Instaread app.
