Complacency Breeds Failure


"Complacency Breeds Failure" - Andy Grove (Intel)

How you present yourself in person and in writing matters. Your interactions are interpreted by employers, potential employers, customers, partners, vendors and colleagues. Therefore, ALWAYS take the extra few minutes and make sure your presentation, whether it be resume, presentation or appearance is A+++

Career Management


"Don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as you mind lets you. What you believe you can achieve." – Mary Kay Ash

I have spoken with so many people for intentionally limit themselves about their careers. They have been beat up and bruised in the cutthroat workplace. I always point out accomplishments and make recommendations for what they can do better. If you need an objective opinion, identify a mentor who can help provide perspective to you.

Work and Life Balance

 "Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life".

The best professionals have "life balance". Many of us suffer from what I call Life Inbalance Syndrome (LIS). Be aware that LIS is easy to catch and can be hard to break. Just understanding the existence of LIS is 50% of your battle.

Excellence or Mediocrity

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit - Aristotle

Friends, colleagues, managers, customers, vendors will define you by repeated, consistent performance, not "one-shot" successes. Excellence will always be treated different than mediocrity. Therefore, raise the bar and do not stand on your past laurels.

Winning in the Workplace (Quote)


To Win In the Marketplace, You Must Win in the Workplace - - Doug Cowart

Sounds cliche but no - think about it. If you are looking for a job (job market = marketplace), then you must demonstrate how you can win in the workplace (showcase your successes).
