This is a series of posts that uses a quotation by a famous person from history to make a point about career management. Take a moment to reflect and see whether you can start using this wisdom as you start managing your career.

Dag Hammarskjold said:

“Never look down to test the ground before taking the next step: only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road.” Dag Hammarskjold

Proteus Career Management says:

“The path to your career future will become clear if you focus on personal and written career objectives: focus on where you are going, not on where you are.”

The lesson? “Define your career objectives.”

Dr Mike Warren says:

Today’s quote is true for any journey, but has particular resonance for those who are on a well defined career journey. You’ll probably finish up either exactly where you are now or where you want to be – the choice is yours – it depends where you put your focus.
