Simple Solutions For Careers That May Be Bogged Down

We can all get trapped into career complacency if we are not careful.  Instead, it may be a good idea to put into place our own personal goals and evaluate, from time to time, the things we could do better – or for that matter – the things we shouldn’t do at all that might give our careers a more positive trajectory.

MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE

  • Being well informed
  • Balanced career and personal life
  • Strong verbal communication skills
  • Generosity
  • Encouraging others
  • Volunteering for civic activities
  • Doing more than called for in a job description
  • Having realistic expectations
  • Always prompt
  • Acknowledge mistakes

MAKING A NEGATIVE DIFFERENCE

  • Shallow thinking
  • Being one-dimensional
  • Never acknowledging another person’s accomplishments
  • Disorganized – never planning ahead
  • Acting as a loner
  • Criticizing others
  • Lack of appreciation of peers
  • Self-righteous attitude
  • Belaboring a dissatisfaction over and over
  • Giving too little and expecting too much
