Proteus Career Management says:
“Even when your career is on a roll, don’t be complacent. You still need to manage your career against unexpected events: the company is sold; the market collapses; the next recession begins to bite. Get ready, it will happen! Future proof your career: build your well before the next drought.”
The lesson? “Protect your future livelihood.”
Dr Mike Warren says:
Unfortunately comfort zones breed inactivity, complacency and procrastination which means that most people are never prepared for the unexpected events that hit their careers. Act now, start to manage your career proactively.
