About Commonplace


Commonplace is built around a single idea: today, job security is the ability to get your next job, not keep your current one.

The way you go about doing that is to focus on career moats: that is, building competitive advantages that ensure you don’t have to worry about finding your next job. Much of my writing is focused on understanding what career moats are, and how to get better at building them.

Career moats are primarily how I think about my career. Over the past few years, I've mapped out most of the nuances of building career moats from scratch. I've done this by writing from synthesis and practice. And I do this because I believe that having a career moat is an amazing thing.

If you have a career moat, you aren’t as worried about finding work.

You know that if you are ever laid off, you may easily find another job, because you possess ‘career capital’ — skills and resources that are relatively rare, and are in sufficient demand to guarantee enough money to support you and yours.

This knowledge gives you peace of mind.

It allows you to think more strategically about your career, and it allows you to plan your moves ahead of time.

But all of this reading is only useful up to a certain point. How do you build a career moat?

The answer is simple: you do it through action.

The Commonplace Membership Program is designed to help you do just that.
