22 Career Lessons

             

1.You're like a small corporation: "You, Inc." Even if you work for

a big company, you're on your own. Companies aren't people. They're

things, often uncaring things. Companies don't have feelings. Those

who expect companies to "take care of them", or to "do the right

thing" are often disappointed, especially when they feel they have

strong friendships in the company. No one cares more about your

career than you do. Remember that, and don't expect "the company" to

take care of you. 

       

2.Certain people belong in certain kinds of jobs. You do have

special gifts that fit you for some, disqualify you for others. Self-

knowledge is essential (but rare). Take time to assess your skills,

temperament, aptitudes in depth. Everyone--even senior executives--

could benefit from the help of a qualified career counselor. 

 

3.Careers are short-term. On any given day, your present job can

end,even if you own the company! Therefore, think short term. Don't

take your present opportunity for granted. I define a consultant

as "Someone who  wakes up every morning unemployed." You should feel

the same way. Wake up every morning feeling unemployed--appreciate

your job--and figure out what you're going to do next. It's

always

great to have a "Plan B." 

       

4.It's more important to be a "people person" than to be an

achievement-oriented person always winning at the cost of others.

People skills are more important than technical skills. Even in

technical jobs, you have to interface with someone. Many of our

outplacement clients are superstars who have been fired. Often the

average performers who are easier to get along with last longer. 

       

5.Your achievements (results, accomplishments) are your calling card

for the future. They will determine your marketability. In marketing

yourself, it's results that count. A baseball player who gets a hit

every time at bat is easier to market than one who doesn't. It's

that simple. Make sure you're contributing something substantial and

measurable every single day. Make sure you keep a written record of

your results. 

       

6.If you lose your job, 80% of your marketing for a new position is

already done. That's right. Your reputation, results,

accomplishments, people skills, kindnesses, contributions,

friendships are all a matter of record. If you've been a

contributor, if you've been kind to others and easy-to-work-with,

you'll be in demand. If not, you won't. No consultant in the world

can create friendship for you if you haven't created it for

yourself. 

       

7.Changing fields, industries, and functional specialties is

difficult, and more difficult the bigger the change. Hardwoods

manufacturers won't want to hire you if you've been in softwoods.

And vice versa. Choose your career path carefully. As management

expert Peter Drucker says, "The best way to predict the future is to

plan it." 

       

8.Salesman, Customer Service Representative, Teacher, Staff

Accountant, Technical Writer isn't a career. Accounts Payable Clerk,

Junior Accountant, Accountant, Controller, Chief Financial Officer,

Vice President of Finance is a career. 

       

9.People tend to earn what they deserve to earn. 

       

10.Love, happiness, friendship, time for oneself are just as

important as career. If career is everything in your life, you could

be disappointed if your career is sidetracked. 

       

11.If you're fired or laid off, don't sue your former employer. Ask

yourself why you didn't see it coming; or if you did see it coming,

ask yourself why you didn't do something about it. Figure out your

part in causing the problem. Then set about creating a new, better

life for yourself. There is a better life in your future. 

       

12.Don't ever let yourself be unemployed, even for a day. Volunteer

a few hours, work part-time for a temporary agency, help a friend in

his or her company. Do something to get yourself out of the house.

Unemployment is a mind-set you should avoid. 

       

13.Don't stay in a job you hate. Hating your job can kill you. 

       

14.Too much success can kill you. Notice I said "too much success,"

not "too much stress." Learn when enough is enough. Success itself

can cause you problems. If you think you're burning out, you may be

right. Highly successful people are the most subject to burnout of

all. They demand the most from themselves--and everyone around

them. 

       

15.Success is difficult. If success were easy, everyone would be

successful. 

       

16.There's a special place for everyone. You can create the kind of

future you want. Just remember: 

       

17.Nothing good happens fast. 

       

18.The workplace is fun and challenging. It can also be cruel and

heartless. It rewards effort and planning, but tends to punish

indifference and lack of preparation. Those who don't manage their

careers--who just let things happen-often end up in painful, dead-

end jobs and lifestyles. 

       

19.You are fully in control of your own future. No one can deny you

a happy life if you decide to plan it and work for it. No one can

stop you from becoming successful, but yourself. 

     

20.It's never too late for a new beginning. 

       

21.Your friends--even distant friends--are your best allies in a job-

search. No one will help you more than those who already know your

name. So make an extensive list of everyone you've met in life--and

let them know your situation. 

       

22.Align yourself with winners. Hang around with winners. Success

really does rub off from others. There's no substitute for "knowing

the right people," and for "being in the right place at the right

time."

Congrats! You do have a pretty nice blog here! I'll definitely come back for more. I run a site offering educative material concerning House and similar issues. Today I discovered a way to give money for charitable purposes so that one hundred percent of your funds will go directly into aid. It won't be wasted on swelling a Swiss bank account. Learn what I discovered -- here. And do visit my mall with its House-related products. Thanks for your time.

Hi itsDifferent

After reading a good blog I tend to analyze it to see what the person behind it might be like.

I've been in the goal setting business a while now and just like most people with experience in different areas of expertise, I can tell a lot about a person just by speaking to them or reading something they've written.

You haven't wrtten any goals on paper for awhile have you? And if you have I'll bet you haven't looked at them for a long time. Right?

Goal setting is hard work, and harder still if you don't have short range goals, mid range goals and long range goals.

I think you'll agree that few people really take the time to set goals of any kind.

When is the last time you really thought about setting some real goals, or are you like the vast majority of people who just "hope for the best"?

You already know successful people aren't "just lucky", they know how to set effective goals and reach them.

I was like that once, you might be also.

How about changing all that.

Come on over to goals+ and learn exactly how to set effective goals, act on them and be the real you.

There's a ton of FREE information and who knows, this little insert in your blog might well change your life!

Happy New Year!

HELLO itsDifferent

I like to leave little "helps" after reading a good blog, or going over the blog comments, just to start people thinking about, well, everything.

2006 is just around the corner.

Thought about what you would like to achieve next year?

Did you do all you wanted to do this year, personally, professionally and perhaps spiritually?

My guess is; probably not. Most people don't know how to set workable goals and if they do, the don't know how to manage them.

When is the last time you actually took time to write down all you would like to do and accomplish in life? Or even a few of the small things you would like to do but didn't think would be possible?

We all have the potential to get almost anything we want out of life. It just takes a little work, thinking and action.

The first step is knowing how to set effective goals and then of course, how to follow up on them. That's the hard part. Following up.

How would you like to actually make this years New Years Resolution come true? Of course it would have to be attainable, and possible, but you could do it if you knew how.

Curious?

Use the FREE information @ How To Set Goals and have a really GREAT NEW YEAR.

All the BEST!
