Progressing in one’s career

I was once asked how I progressed in my technical career.

Be willing
Be willing

Career Progress

I replied:

By being willing;

By being vulnerable and okay with making mistakes (correcting afterward);

By listening to understand the business need (or the bigger picture);

By always being first to raise my hand and volunteer when our department was implementing anything new (not only software);

By always learning why the new gadget was important to the business;

By transferring skills to new processes;

By doing whatever it took to help the team be successful;

By applying timely criticism to the benefit of a current task (only late or public criticism bothers me);

By taking classes;

By attending every conference (and presented also), anytime I could;

By applying my intellect.

Yes, being willing is a solid first step to career advancement.

We Are All Connected.

Many blessings to you in ALL ways. OM
