It’s easy to confuse everyday, necessary activities with our actual lives. And it’s equally easy to confuse work with our dreams. Taking control of your career requires constant effort, which can be hard. Sometimes we get so caught up in doing our job that we forget to ask where it is all going. Keep in mind, your job is part of your career but not your whole career. You may be working at a job for now to gain some experience, but it may not be where you intend to be in the future. So how can you stay on top of your career while working your way up?
Remember to treat your career as a marathon, not a sprint. Few people get their dream job at first, but over time they find what they are meant to do. It just takes a little effort to craft the perfect dream job!
