Subject: Professional Development
What's my goal or desired outcome?
Your desired outcome should probably have the greatest impact on choosing a professional development path. Are you looking to dramatically increase your value in the job market and grow your network? Maybe an MBA is the right path for you. Do you want to learn new skills to complement your current experience and make a stronger case for promotion or raise? A rigorous online program you can complete in a few months might be more your speed. Need to learn some coding basics to enhance your marketability? A quick online tutorial might have you writing HTML by the weekend. Picture yourself at the finish line and you'll have a much better idea of how to get there.
Ed lives in Maine, a state that has a so-called merchant protection statute (or shopkeeper's privilege). One day Ed goes to the grocery store to shoplift some steaks for dinner. The owner of the grocery store catches Ed red-handed in the act of shoplifting. He and an employee gently restrain Ed in the back room, feeding him gourmet food and wine until the local sheriff finally shows up three days later. If Ed sues the grocer for the tort of false imprisonment, he will win if he can prove that:
The grocer detained him for an unreasonable time after reasonably suspecting him of shoplifting.
