7 Proven Ways to Improve Your Career
No one is responsible for your career- you are. It’s both important and rewarding to continue to develop your skills and move forward. Here are some proven ways to improve in your career and move toward the path of success:
1. Don’t be afraid to fail at something
Want to advance in your career? Then don’t be afraid to fail at something. When you fail at something–and because you’re human, you inevitably will, just like the rest of us–don’t let that be the end of your road. Let it be the vehicle to your success. Look at failure as the incredible learning experience that it often is. Failure only stops us if we let them. If you don’t fail, you won’t learn from your mistakes.
2. Set up your priority work first
Working smarter matters!! Tackle most important projects in the morning when your willpower is still high. I came across this suggestion on twitter. This idea is very simple: instead of putting off that important – or the least desirable – task until later in the day, start your morning off by doing it first. It will improve your overall productivity and set the right tone of your day.
3. Write down All of Your Ideas
If you have thought of a great idea but forgot to write it down, by the next morning that idea will be gone forever. Pen and paper may not always be available to you but how about note it on your phone or sending yourself an email. If you have pen and paper available, then jot down your thoughts and scribble ideas. You will never be left wondering how that great idea escaped!
4. Feedback is your best friend
Communications are more effective where feedback is applied. Feedback, if delivered properly, can be the best gift you can receive from others. Feedback can also be highly motivating and energizing. Be open to feedbacks. Instead of replying, listen to it carefully. Consider the feedback and decide how you are going to act upon it. Remember that the person giving the feedback felt strongly enough to bother mentioning it to you.
5. Dress for success
If you want to be successful, try to look best. The way you dress will likely make an impression on your boss no matter where you work. Looking presentable is important. Neat, presentable work attire can help you move up in your career, or at least keep your job, while consistent inappropriate clothing may negatively affect the way your boss perceives you. Particularly if your company has a dress code (official or not), breaking it can mean bad news for you.
6. Goal Digger
Setting goals is crucial to advance in your career. People with goals succeed because they know where they are going. Most importantly, make your goals realistic. List goals that you know you can achieve. Without goal, you lack focus and direction. The key to success is to concentrate on your goals, not on the obstacles. Remember this: Set Goal. Make Plan. Get to Work. Stick to it. Reach Goals.
7. Celebrate your success
While working to attain all your goals, don’t forget to pause and celebrate your victories, no matter how big or small they are. This will not only help build confidence in yourself, but also help build the confidence others have in you. Be proud of every step you take toward reaching that goal.
