3 Guidelines for career
Today we want to share 3 guidelines for life that have helped us along our own career journey.
Whichever part of your career you want to improve, these guidelines will help you.
#1 Do the significant things early on in life
There’s a Chinese proverb that goes: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.”
We all have those one or two regrets about waiting too long on something – a business idea, a career changing assignment, a promotion negotiation.
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t done it till now. If it is still relevant to you, do it now. It will only get more delayed tomorrow onwards.

#2 You have to take action yourself
No one, not even your spouse, family, closest boss or mentor, is responsible for your career.
The hardest steps in your career are those that you have to take yourself.
However, they will add more value to your life and work than those steps others decide for you.
Sure, it may seem scary at first. But slowly, with one small decision building on top of another, you will progress.
And then suddenly, it will start to get easier.
#3 Don’t try to do everything alone
There’s a secret hack to speed up your career growth by 2x.
