Part 2: If I could rewind the clock.
I would avoid the pain I experienced in my career.
And, focus on these 3 more things I'd do differently:
#1 - I would stop trying to achieve perfection.
I thought doing my work perfectly was my job.
I would spend time truing to make stuff pretty and detailed.
But I was inefficient and ineffective overall.
#2 - I would speak up sooner.
I was highly introverted and invisible for a long time.
Like it or not, getting visible can get you more opportunities.
I faced my fears and learned how to communicate clearly with others.
#3 - I would define what growth means to me.
While I figured out how to climb the ladder, I'm not obsessed with it.
Growth could mean working smoothly and avoiding drama.
Growth could also mean improving my skills.
Your career will stay stuck.
If you let it.
So Friend, what are you doing for your career today? :)
