You have to learn to pace yourself for, and operate within, what is basically a long-term game. If you don't win the client or you don't meet the deadline, you've failed.

In business, writing long-winded things will impress no one, and irritate a lot of people. Get to the point as quickly as possible.

Mar 14 2017

Everybody screws up sometimes. You lose a big client. You hire the wrong person. You miss a deadline for getting a product to market. First, you have to own it. You cannot play the blame game. Even if you aren't the only author of the screwup – and you probably aren't – you still have to take responsibility publicly. Go around to the people who are aware of what happened, and ask them: 'What could have I done? What should have I done?'. It is going to take you out of your comfort zone. But it's going to show that you have the guts to get to the bottom of something. You want to get it off fast.feedback

If you're feeling lukewarm about work, you might just be bored or burned out. If you just want to be your own boss, that's not a good reason to leave, either. Maybe you are the next Mark Zuckerberg, but being an entrepreneur isn't a lifestyle choice. It's the result of having an amazing idea. Do you have one?feedback

Feb 01 2017

There's someone above you who's never going to leave. Maybe it's the boss' daughter or son. Maybe it's a good employee. It doesn't matter, you're not going anywhere. Say you started out as an assistant – some people will never see you as anything but. Or maybe you were part of a failed project. Sometimes failure can cling to you, even when it's not your fault. If you're feeling 'meh' about the product or service your company is in, that's a sign too. Life is short and precious. If you're being called morning, noon and night to follow a particular passion, go for it.feedback
