Real Work is Developmental
Why do people think if they attend a course or a conference, they'll learn to do something differently that will immediately improve their career? This rarely happens. Real career development happens at work, doing the work, it doesn't happen away from work. Rule #1 of career development: Real work develops people. Rule #2: The 'first time' and 'different' are critical, and Rule #3: Accurate self-knowledge is the foundation for success. Find projects and work that stretch you and you'll continue to grow in your career. Good luck!
