Sitting Around Waiting for the Miracle

You can’t be a bystander in your career.

Position yourself intelligently. Instead of showing up as a service provider, come in as a strategist so you’re treated as an equal partner, not a day laborer.

Beat them to the punch. Instead of asking people what they want, show them you’re already doing what they need more of.

Frame the context. Instead of selling an idea, sell people on the unique approach and philosophy behind the idea.

Stuff your sleeves with aces. Instead of talking, go do something, and then you’ll have something to do the talking for you when you arrive.

Sure beats sitting around waiting for the miracle.
