Nowadays, I got the chance to work with, Nick Smith, a charming client, in fact, one of the most well-informed and talented professionals I have ever met. Yet, in spite of the abundance of natural talent, Nick was unemployed for a very long time — the few jobs he handled to find did not last very long. After a series of setbacks, he knew something was wrong but couldn’t unravel the mystery cause that was foiling his career goals repeatedly.

During one of our coaching job academic session, we eventually hit the life-changing eureka instant, not just for Smith, but for the many who are guilty of the same [professional] crime: knowledge stagnancy. In his career crossing over two decades, Nick had paid very little attention to his professional skills and expertise. He was so focused on the work he was doing, he rarely paid attention to the changes that were shaking the very foundations of his chosen community, a bitter truth that came to his attending after his long-time employer closed procedures.

Attaining impressive, but consistent, career increase is every professional’s dream. Yet, many believe that aiming for professional person success is a difficult taking in charge that often demands complex Machiavellian strategies or political tact. Not true. The best recipe for long term success is plain old PHP (planning, hard work, and persistence). Speaking of success, what activities if taken now will fire up your career and take you a step closer to your ambitions? We have outlined a few simple tips.

Realize that you’re in charge

Many persons I come across are brilliant, talented, hard working masters. Despite their tremendous potential, however, they are very passive when it comes to their career. When I ask them about their next career move or strategy, I often get a blank stare or a cold response: “I don’t know.” These individuals appear to be waiting, as if, for their chief or superior to grant the next promotion or to catalyze the next big thing, a wait that often translates into many wasted years — precious years. It is very important to realize that you are in charge of your career, not someone else. Once this recognition sinks in, the rest will follow automatically.

Prepare an action plan

Where do you want to be in the next five years? ten? What can you do to take you closer to your long term goals? Answering these questions in detail will allow building blocks for your Action Plan.

Caveat: A plan that is conceptualized but not composed will, most likely, [let’s admit] not be executed, so it is critical for you to put the action plan on paper, on the wall, on the discussion board — wherever it will scream at you to take activity.

Take stock

During all my training sessions I stress on doing a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis. What are your strengths and weaknesses? What chances do you anticipate (or can create) in the coming year? And how can you grab them (literally)? Do you perceive any threats to your professional person dreams?

Get the dust off your curriculum vitae

How often do you update your curriculum vitae? Once every few years, right? Not a good scheme. At the end of every work week you must make a list of achievements for that week. These regular article will be a big help when it is time to actually update your resume.

Demonstrate a PD (professional development) budget

We are living in the Information Age, an age where knowledge moves faster than fashion. Unless you participate in ongoing professional development, your skills will soon be, well, obsolete. Continuously investing in professional growth — training, professional affiliations, education, certificates, professional literature, etc. — will help you stay abreast with the latest advances in your field, and also a step above the competition. Set aside an annual budget (if your employer doesn’t sponsor) for your master development and growth. This will be your wisest investment ever.

Challenge yourself

Achievers constantly compete with themselves, always pushing the bar to deliver more with each attempt. Push yourself to perform better. Drive for 110%, 120% ….

Become a useful resource

Do people concern you for advice? If not, take steps to become an expert in your community or area of interest. From internal employees to the media, you must be looked upon as a valuable resource. On a regular basis seek out publishing (articles, books, etc.), networking, and public
