Words from the Wise 24: Vince Lombardi
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.
Vince Lombardi said:
“If you aren’t fired with enthusiasm, you will be fired with enthusiasm.”
Proteus Career Management says:
“If you remain enthusiastic about what you do, you will probably not be top of the proposed redundancy list.”
The lesson? “Project the right attitude.”
Dr Mike Warren says:
If you are enthusiastic about what you do, about your career and about what you have achieved you are much more likely to be retained as a valuable employee. You are also more likely to be asked back for the next stage of the recruitment process – apart, of course, from those weird interviews where you are asked to assemble flat pack furniture or calculate the area of a triangle! If enthusiasm is a challenge for you, try to capture the attitude you have when you are relating a fascinating or amusing incident from your favourite hobby, holiday or sport.
