Your Career Race - Run!

'Career race' is not a sprint. It is, really, a marathon. Many people get tired throughout the race and sadly, they never get to reach their full potential.

In our ‘career race’, we have to stay focused on finishing the course. You cannot waste time looking back or watching the competition.

People tend to waste time thinking about what could have happened or dwell on the past. The secret is to let it go – focus instead on continuing your race.

Muovo would like to share with you the following article, first published by Recruiter.com. In this article, Caroline Knight gives the following tips on how you should run your ‘career race’ to success.
1.    Perform at your highest level. 
Strive to do your best regardless of the circumstances of the situation. Stand out and be one of the engaged employees. Endure till the end!

2.    Define what the end of your 'career race' is.
The end of your race could be defined as retirement at 55, promotion to director, manager, vice president, or chief executive officer?  Only you can define the finish line of your “career race”, and of course, it may change as time goes on.

3.    Identify distractions. 
There will be numerous distractions including life changes, possible downsizing, denied promotions, and so on.  Prepare to overcome them. 


4.    Stay the course. 
Keep your mind on the finish line and give it your all.  Remember circumstances can alternate the speed at which you run but at all times give it your all. You must run your 'career race' as hard as you can or run the risk of being left behind.
