Last week, I was privileged to facilitate a career session for staff of one of the top banks in Nigeria titled ‘To thyself be true’.
A quick survey of the participants showed that about half of them were sure they were not in their best-fit careerpath. As we went along, it was obvious to me that the ‘busyness’ of their present situations did not allow them have enough time to prepare for their desired future. Anyway, I did what I know how to do best and got them inspired and informed to pursue their future.
Now, to you..
A critical component of future success is that you are ‘sowing’ the right seeds today. Tomorrow always comes in the form of Today and if you do not position Today for Tomorrow, you will end up with a Tomorrow you do not desire. In other words, you have to be proactive about your future. Take Charge of your tomorrow by maximising Today.
One of the bankers at that event wants to become a school teacher. I have advised her to maximize her ‘after work’ time and weekends to position for her desire.
If you run a business, you must be doing things today that will result in your organization becoming a multi-national. Your business will not just grow to be great. You have to grow a great organization. My mentor will say it this way, a monkey never grows big enough to become a baboon. So, if you want a ‘baboon’, you have to grow it from its infancy.
Remember, my organization, Inspiro Consulting is running career information sessions for HR Professionals (including those aspiring) and Entrepreneurs.
