A lot of people work hard on their jobs and for their employers but don’t seem to be getting ahead. And they wonder why.
Business philosopher Jim Rohn often said, “You have to work hard on yourself and not just on your job.” That means that each of us is totally responsible for our own professional development. And we need to take it seriously! We need a plan for professional development – what courses or seminars to take, what new skills to learn, what books to read, what people to meet and cultivate, etc. If you don’t have a plan to develop yourself, it is unlikely that anyone else will do it for you.
Remember: For things to get better for you, you have to get better.
