I love this post by Seth Godin. It’s so true, I’m just going to quote the entire thing here!
You can learn a new skill, today, for free.
You can take on a new task at work, right now, without asking anyone.
You can make a connection, find a flaw, contribute an insight, now.
In a fluid system, when people are moving forward, others are falling behind.
The question, then, isn’t, “when am I going to get promoted?”
No, I think the question is, “will I grab these openings to become someone who’s already doing work at a higher level?”
Act ‘as if’. If the people around you don’t figure out what an asset you’ve become, someone else will.
So True! What are you going to do with the opportunity to step up, learn a new skill, contribute an insight, or fix a flaw?
Thanks for listening.
