A success characteristic for your career.

During your life you will create numerous personal “works of art”. Many of them will be very public and shared by those around you but one of them, a successful career, is very personal for most of us and remains hidden from all but our closest friends and family. 

If you are to design, plan and accomplish your own successful career there is one extremely important characteristic of successful people you need to emulate. 

As John Gardner pointed out when he said “life is the art of drawing without an eraser,” time only moves in one direction. 

When the inevitable, unpredictable events that litter most people’s careers happen to us personally, it becomes very difficult to keep our careers on track. 

The success characteristic we need to cultivate is the art of designing creative contingency plans and building these into our master career plan. In this way, what to do when something goes wrong is already part of our plan and we can take immediate remedial action. #proteuscareermanagement #careeradvice #contingencyplanning #careermentoring
