There are the sprints - 100m, 200m, and 400m.
Then, middle-distance running - that’s the 800m, 1500m, 3000m.
And finally, the marathon.
Imagine yourself as a runner.
In order to win, you’ll use a strategy that works for that running distance.
Running a sprint:
That’s like starting a new job and expecting to do a good job and get praise in the first 30 days.
That’s starting a job with enthusiasm but also knowing that it takes some time to learn and deliver great work.
Running a marathon:
Thinking about your career growth in the next 10, 20, or 30 years — not just the next few days or months.
If you see your career as a marathon...
How would that change what you’re doing right now?
Which skills do you need to develop, enhance or master?
Choose your event.
Choose your strategy.
Choose your version of success.
So Mei, what kind of runner are you? :)
With love (and fire),
Mei Phing xx
