How a woman build a dream career
1. Clearly identify where you are going
As they say in the old Russian proverb, "for two hares chase — you will not catch any". Sprayed directly on several areas — not the best idea. You can not succeed in any of them, and in the end, having experienced great disappointment, even abandoned attempts to do something. You should clearly determine where you want to be in 3-5-10 years, and focus on that goal. Otherwise, you, unfortunately, instead of climbing the career ladder will slide down smoothly.
2. Ask and give advice
Don't be afraid to give in and ask for advice from their colleagues. They accidentally may be knowledgeable about a topic that interests you, give you the necessary contacts or recommend sensible article. But also be prepared to return good for good and to give advice or provide assistance, if requested it. To establish links for the future, in the event that you already knew who to call.
3. "To stay where you are, you have to run"
This quote is truer than ever in our crazy times. Everything is changing at the speed of light, and someone manages to adapt, and some don't. Second, unfortunately, left out. It is therefore important to constantly learn something new and immediately implement it in the work.
4. Ambition is good
In our society there is a stereotype of the "punishability of the initiative", although it is not quite so. It is the proactivity and the desire to act that distinguish a successful employee from his less successful colleagues. So you should take your life by your own hands and risk. It is better to try and be wrong, than to sit unnoticed. What if you still can?
5. Be self-reliant
The center of your own Universe should not work, and you. Only finding a balance between all the important areas of life such as family, health, friendship, etc. you will be able to consider life stable.
6. Do what you love
Try to love your work, and not do it somehow. And in parallel, look for a favorite thing and get what you want. Turn your work into pleasure, and success will not keep you waiting.
7. Plan for a horizontal career move
Career does not necessarily imply a permanent rise to the top. Sometimes going out of your comfort zone when you begin to engage in a related activity, good expands your vision of the company and the industry as a whole.
Very often the right decision is the simplest. If you are not sure that correctly understood the task set before you — just ask again. Don't waste your precious time in thinking, go ahead. Don't complicate it, and resolve doubts.
9. Build the right communications and manage them
Learn to speak beautifully, listen attentively and persuasively share your thought, because 80% of all working time we spend in communication. So our success depends on the ability to competently communicate.
10. Focus on priority goals
Learn how to clearly think through each step on the path to achieving their goals. Do not try to grab everything at once, so useless multitasking is not working. Adsite much time and efforts are important and the rest do in the remaining time and using effort. Remember the Pareto principle: 20% of your actions deliver 80% of the result.
