Career Planning

Having a career plan is important to ensure that our individual goals and dream are attained. Consider the following strategies so that you can make your dreams a reality:

Do not spent time on the past. Understand that the past lays a foundation for your future plan.

Focus on the present. The present allows you to implement strategies that will help ensure the success of your future plan.

Make your plan tangible and document the step by step processes on how you can achieve your career goal.

Create a contingency plan just in case things change and you have no control over it.

The key to success is knowing who you are and understanding good planning.

And… Just do it!


Maybe you have already heard the above phrase. It indeed is true. In business, if you don’t take care of your client, another company will do it in your place; in your personal life, if you don’t take care of your spouse, someone else will.

This truth is related to these the following two statistics. First, attracting a new client is eight times more costly. Second, if you don’t take care of your client, he or she will go with the competition; then you have to invest up to ten times more money and time to try to recover him or her. For these reasons, it is very important to take care of your existing clients, pay attention to them, and dedicate your time to them so they stay with you.

Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett doesn’t believe in long corporate manuals at Berkshire Hathaway, but he does send folksy letters from time to time in order to remind his people of their unique ethos. Here’s an excerpt from one:

“All of you do a first-class job in running your operations with your own individual styles. We are going to keep it that way. You can talk to me about what is going on as little or as much as you wish with only one caveat: If there is any significant bad news, let me know early.”

In the world of change leadership, there is ample room for differences in how projects are managed, but there are certain non-negotiable. One is a promise of early problem-solving and a commitment to “NO NEGATIVE SURPRISES!” When you are a problem solver instead of a problem evader, even potentially tough situations can be turned into an opportunity for a minor course-correction on the road to bottom-line success. Do your people, your partners, and your customers know that you want to hear about the bad news early? If not, make this a week that you communicate a folksy letter of your own to your team.
