My Dear Friend,
This is a true story. Last week, one of my good friends called me, to get some advise on making an important job switch decision. He had received an offer from a company and he was thinking whether to accept the offer or not. The new job was with a multinational consulting company.He wanted to leave the current job because his supervisor was not meeting his incentive etc commitments and my friend was getting the feeling that his skills were over utilized and under paid.
Have you ever had this sort of feeling? You are working so hard and your pay cheque doesn’t reflect that. It still stays reasonably same. No matter how hard you work.
I know many professionals, who had that feeling at some point of time in their career.
When I analysed the situation I realized an important insight:
Don’t Drive Your Ferrari on Rail Track.
If you think you have skills, qualifications and experience similar to power & elegance of Ferrari then make sure you are utilizing those on the right track / path / road or in other words right Employer. Ferrari is most suitable for highways (or Motorways as they call in UK) and rail tracks are for trains. Hence make sure you are utilizing your skills in right industry / on right track / for right employer etc. Otherwise you might end up exhausted as my friend.
Action strategy of this month:
Think about your ultimate goal / position you want to reach in next 3-5 years. Make sure you think about both sides i.e. professional side as well as financial side. If you can connect the dots from your future goal to current position then its great. Other wise this is the RIGHT TIME to start looking for RIGHT TRACK for you. Remember Life is Short and Time is Limited hence Don’t waste your time trying to figure out why your Ferrari is not making progress on Rail Track, because simply – It won’t work that way.Also,
Let me know your Success Story and I’ll share with others to inspire them.
All the Best and Stay in Touch.
