STOP, REFLECT & TAKE NOTE
Many of us are so busy in our professional lives that we often don't take time to review and assess our work performance until we're forced to - either through formal job evaluations or a setback such as a layoff.
To optimize performance:
*Articulate your desires
*Articulate your goals
*Articulate your strengths
*Articulate your weaknesses
To accomplish the foregoing:
*Reflect (know levels of satisfaction/frustration)
*Get a mentor
Remember the best companies often evaluate their products/services... What would happen if you and I gave the same commitment to our careers?
