Building a rewarding career is one of the best ways to begin feeling more satisfied with your life as a whole. After all, you likely spend the majority of your time at work, as do most people. You want to feel positive and motivated while you’re there, and great about it when you come home. You don’t want to feel low, lethargic, and like calling in sick. Here are some of the essentials to building a rewarding career:
Know Your Strengths And Weaknesses
Knowing your strengths and weaknesses is a huge part of building a rewarding career. As the saying goes, knowing yourself is the key to true power. When you know your strengths, you can utilize them in your job to produce the best possible work. When you know your weaknesses, you can work on them and get better.
It could even be a good idea to choose maybe 5 people you trust, and email them a sincere email asking for their opinion of your strengths and weaknesses. One of these people could be your boss, one could be your best friend, one could be your mother, one could be a colleague – all of these people will have a different perspective and information to add. Just make sure they know not to give you any BS. You need to be able to take this if you’re going to improve!
