Do you ever look at successful people-business honchos, inventors of must-have devices, celebrated
authors and speakers-and
wonder how they got there? What magic recipe transformed them from Average Joe
to front-page news?
While there is no "secret sauce" for success, listening to
career advice from people you admire comes pretty close. We've rounded up the
best career advice you never got (at least in person anyway). Follow these gems
and you will be well-served, both at work and in life.
Get Seduced: Passion is the key to balance says
writer Susan Tardanico in this Forbes.com piece.When you love your paid work, and
pursue other things you love, be it family or hobbies, you find time in your
life for it all, says Tardanico. Other advice? Be resilient and don't fear
failure: mistakes get made, things fall apart, you need to learn from what
wrong and move on. Calling her entire career an "accident," Tardanico also cautions
against spending time planning for the future and instead advocates cultivating
one's own "brilliance." Bottom line: Find what you love, do it well and trust
that the rest will take care of itself.
Pay Attention: Joyce Lain Kennedy's wonderful year-end career advice piece can be summed up thus: pay
attention. Don't coast along assuming job security is yours and that you remain
employable. Rather, pay attention to your career; fight obsolescence by keeping
your skills fresh, your network cultivated and overhauling your job hunting
tools (i.e. when did you last update your LinkedIn profile?) Bottom line: Jobs
are awarded by HR departments, not careers: be sure to nourish your own.
Be Yourself: Sometimes the best advice is to
ignore bad advice. This tip
was shared by many of the New York City women
making up a recent list of Crain's Top Fifty most powerful women. Top
executives in fields as different as education, the cultural arts and fashion, all
revealed the bad advice they received over the years. Instead of heeding advice
that didn't sit right, these women remained authentic and on-track by listening
to their inner voice. Bottom line: Too thine own self be true. Props to
Shakespeare for this solid career advice.
