Words from the Wise 30: Jim Rohn
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.
Jim Rohn said:
“You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.”
Proteus Career Management says:
“You cannot remove yourself from a noxious working environment overnight but, having acknowledged that it is noxious, you can decide overnight that it is time to move on.”
The lesson? “Review your career.”
Dr Mike Warren says:
It is a fact of life that we become like the people with whom we associate. This is either a “sad fact” or a “great fact” – it all depends on who you choose to be around! But in a working environment sometimes the choice isn’t yours. If you are in the wrong one and surrounded by the wrong people then we strongly recommend that you start proactively managing your environment and if that doesn’t working then start planning your exit strategy – don’t blend into the background, dare to be different – get out before you are infected!
