I found an old email in my mail box dated back in 1999, but the content is still pretty applicable. The content of the email contains 10 tips for a successful career. Since I haven’t really taken all those tips seriously over the years, it is no surprise that my career is not as successful as it can be 🙂 Looking back though, I can see that I unconsciously practiced some of those tips and I can totally say the pay off is good and led to unexpected pleasant surprises. So for the next 5 years, I am planning to take these tips seriously and constantly going back to them for reminders.
Here are the tips:
- Don’t wait for permissions
- Don’t burn bridges
- Respect others
- Be a team player
- Be Flexible
- Have confidence in your decision
- Learn technologies
- Find a champion
- Be both patient and tenacious
- Thinks two steps ahead
There is one tip that I would like to add:
11. Have a healthy disregard for the impossible
Love to hear your career tips.
