Logic Of The Day: 24/08/2017.
When you’re in the same role at the same company for a long time, you can easily get complacent. But in today’s world, there’s no such thing as certainty. You can’t let yourself get too comfortable. You never know what’s ahead, so keeping your competitive edge is always a good idea, no matter how “secure” you feel in the moment. And who knows what kinds of opportunities may come your way?
The following will help you stay at the top of your game. That way, whatever happens, you know you’re in a competitive position.
Develop Your Skills.
You should always be looking for ways to expand your existing professional skills and develop new ones. No matter what role you’re in or how long you’ve been there, you always have room for growth. If you ever find yourself saying, “There’s nothing more to learn,” you’re kidding yourself. You’re just not looking hard enough. And you’re probably not being totally honest about your capabilities.
New technology shows up every day. New ideas are always being explored. You simply can’t know everything. Look for opportunities to practice different skills, implement new processes, take on new responsibilities or try out new technology. Get creative if you have to. Just remember that there’s no such thing as standing still. Every day you aren’t moving forward, you’re actually falling behind.
