A challenge for the person who wants to begin the quest of learning new knowledge and improving existing skills is in knowing where to start. A good way to consider this is by thinking about what would happen if you left your current position tomorrow. What steps would the person following after you take to improve things? This can provide you a window into what’s lacking and where you can improve on it. Taking these steps on your own, and implementing plans for change is a great way to improve your own self-image.
Initiative and drive are difficult to measure, and yet many people can identify a person who possesses these qualities. How do those people take bigger goals and break them down? How does their commitment for initiative show up in their everyday life? Don’t be afraid to get inspired by taking a page from someone else’s book. Using your own passion and experience will allow you to become a more agile, respected, and knowledgeable individual in your workplace and in your personal life.
