Career Management 101

  1. Choose a job you love. Allow your passion to become your purpose, and it will one day become your profession.
  2. It’s the little conversations that build the relationship. The most important single ingredient in the formula of success is knowing how to get along with people.
  3. Be adaptable, flexible and never stop learning. You’re always a work in progress and there is always a room for improvement.
  4. Be a leader you would follow. The most powerful leadership tool you have is your own personal example.
  5. Being successful is about professionalism. The true mark of professionalism is the ability to respect everyone else for their opinions and always find something positive in every situation.
  6. Surround yourself with positive people. You cannot change the people around you but you can change the people that you choose to be around.
  7. Find a mentor. Getting a mentor is the shortcut to success. We need someone who inspires us to do better than we know how.
  8. Focus on your career goals. If the plan doesn’t work, change the plan, but never the goal.
  9. Be proactive and not reactive. Being proactive is more than taking initiative. It is recognizing that we are responsible for our own choices.
  10. Never let success get to your head. The only thing success should do is make you more humble.
