I’d like to comment some of the points:
1. Unless you’re working in a coal mine, an emergency ward, or their equivalent, spare us the sad stories about your tough job. The biggest risk most of us face in the course of a day is a paper cut.
Yeah, that’s totally true! I am one of those always complaining about everything. I should read this sentence more often.
3. You are paid to take meaningful actions, not superficial ones. Don’t brag about that memo you sent out or how hard you work. Tell us what you achieved.
Another one that totally bites me. I don’t brag at all, but I should thrive more for greater achievements.
8. Don’t believe what the organization says it does. Its practices are its real policies. Study what is rewarded and what is punished and you’ll have a better clue as to what’s going on.
This one I totally understand. Objectives, goals and yadda-yadda are worth close to nothing. What we really should look for is to what people (and therefore the company) values the most and what kind of behavior is expected from you (which can be quite different from what everyone told you).
9. Don’t expect to be perfect. Focus on doing right instead of being right. It will simplify the world enormously.
I’m not a perfectionist, but I keep thinking that what I’ve done is worthless. Maybe it’s better than what I think. Some people tend to underestimate their capabilities.
10.If you plan on showing them what you’re capable of only after you get promoted, you need to reverse your thinking.
We should think ahead. We ought to think about the present, as well. You must show your capabilities now and plan what you’re going to do as soon as you get promoted.
Why don’t you read this career manifesto and think for a while about it? Does it fit you? Tell us 🙂
