Quoting the famous author Mark Twain, “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”
Building a meaningful career can be challenging, and not just the part where you have to find appropriate job vacancies. What would your career look like if you were to truly feel free? Here are some important practices to adopt early in your career to ensure you finish fulfilled. And if you’re already past ‘early’, adopt them now. It is never too late and though a difficult leap of faith might seem hard, you must trust that the choices you make for the longer term won’t jeopardize your career advancement.
If you’re in your 20s, it is unlikely to know what makes you professionally happy. You’re still acquiring knowledge of yourself. Pay attention to what makes you feel most alive. What are the stories you want to tell your closest friends that you don’t need to impress? When do you feel like you’ve made your best contribution? These are the indicators that should point you toward longer-term career choices, not choices you believe will make you look successful or impressive.
Secondly make career choices with a purpose. What is it that you can learn and how are the career progression opportunities perceived by the company you work for? Career progression doesn’t have to mean a new job title, a bigger desk and more responsibility. It’s important to look at it from the point of view of developing your skill set, amassing valuable experience and progressing as a professional in your field.
