ONE Question you need to ask to have a #Standapart Career

Whether you an up-and-comer, seasoned professional or just starting out, if you’re looking to build a #standapart career this is one question you need to answer.

Ready? Here it is:

Are you present and accounted for? Have YOU got YOUR attention?

The latte you bought this morning. Did you have time to drink it? Did it taste good? Or did it go cold on the side of your desk?

The pavement you hit this morning. Did it feel good? Were you present in the moment? Or, were you thinking too many steps ahead?

The feeling you’ve had for the last month at work? Is it excitement? It is nervousness? Is it a thrilling mix of the two? Are you pushing yourself?

The boss. The people you work with. The clients you serve. The person sitting next to you at the networking event. Do you like them? Do they like you? Do they trust you?  What mutual generosity, interest and support are you showing each other to make that relationship work?

That’s it.  We think #Standapart careers are built by paying attention.

Ask yourself: are you where you want to be? Are you on the right path? Is there one thing you could do today to contribute more or lead better?  What are your own career ‘hindsights’ and insights? Are you present and accounted for?

It’s about focusing in on where you are and where you want to go. You might not even know the destination, but if you’re not paying attention to the road…well, let’s just say, it won’t be your best.

So…are you paying attention? We’d be happy to help you find the answer.

And now that we’ve got your attention…
