Words from the Wise 8: Jawaharlal Nehru
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.
“Action, to be effective, must be directed to clearly conceived ends.” Jawaharlal Nehru
Proteus Career Management says:
“Imagine there are two boxes to tick. One says, ‘Do you have a clearly defined and written career objective?’. The other says, ‘Have you started actively looking for a new position?’ We say, don’t you dare tick the second box until you have ticked the first!`”
The lesson? “Define your career objectives.”
Dr Mike Warren says:
We all love box ticking exercises don’t we!? Here’s one that is actually most effective, provided the boxes are ticked in the right order. It clearly illustrates that, even in our careers, “We need to know where we’re going before we start out on a journey”.
