Are you thinking about your career and positioning yourself for the next opportunity?

Have you looked at what it takes to get to the next level within your organization?

Better yet are you prepared to go outside of your organization if you are not able to achieve your goals internal to your current organization? I learned a long time ago that if you are not preparing yourself for the next opportunity or to progress in your career there is a good chance that you might be overlooked and not get very far. Not to say that you should only be focusing on what’s next and not living in the moment, but rather, remain cognizant of the unpredictability that remains a constant in our lives. If you have not focused on positioning yourself, I highly recommend that you focus some of your efforts/energy on figuring out what it takes to get to the next level, even if it is only to familiarize yourself with what it takes.

Once you identify what it takes to get to the next level, create a plan that will help you focus your efforts on achieving the results you desire. With your plan in place, each day do something to help you get that much closer to achieving your goal. Remaining consistent in your efforts will increase your chances of being prepared if the inevitable every occurs.
