Logic Of The Day: 06.09.2018.
In our minds, we often focus on the parts of our jobs or careers that drive us crazy. I can’t stand doing these TPS reports. Why does Bob have to chew so loudly in the cubicle next to mine?
When we do think about our career trajectory, perhaps we think in vague terms of Ambition.
We want to be promoted. We want to make it to the next level.
It’s more important to figure out which parts of the job you love. And which ones you want to do more. Do you love spreadsheets and want to spend all day immersed in data? Do you love leading meetings and want to get in front of teams more often?
Take the time to make a list of pros and cons. Or spend 10 minutes per week thinking about the things you enjoyed at work this week. You only have to pick a few per week. Over time, they will add up, or show you the clear trends. It might sound like an overwhelming task but spend a little time to it each week and the results will add up.
For example, I know that I love doing a deep dive into data. And I prefer working with smaller teams.
