Do you OWN your career?
Ask yourself a few questions ...
Am I "drifting" in a general direction that life is taking me ... or am I on a path that I chose?
Do I know what I want from my career?
Am I making conscious decisions that will get me where I want to be in my career?
Am I investing in myself ... outside and in addition to, what my employer offers?
Am I taking full advantage of the development opportunities my employer gives me?
Am I getting advice from people other than my boss, my family and my friends?
Do I understand what the future looks like in my chosen career, what disruption will happen, where the opportunities are etc?
These questions are just designed to get you thinking.
There is so much that you could be doing today ... but you have to realise it, and then be willing to make that investment.
Nobody is responsible for your career but you!
"The only person you are destined to become is person one you choose to be."

I write these articles with the intent of sharing MY experience and knowledge gained during MY life journey. From the 16 year old joining the Royal Navy, through many incarnations, to the grey haired guy who built a business. If you find a nugget here, then I am happy. If the message offends you then I apologise, that was never my intent. I know and recognize there are many people and groups who have a far bigger challenge than I have had and I only wish you well.
