What are the five most important things for your success at work? I was thinking about this at the weekend during a couple of long train journeys and concluded that for me they are:
- Skills and knowledge
Top of the list, of course is Time because you have a limited supply and they ain’t making any more of it; Network I use to encompass both working colleagues and our wider associates. Reputation is the result of your actions – hard won, it is easily lost. I admire many people whose great Attitude and Charater have enabled them to overcome other disadvantages in life.
Number 5 is a cheat because it’s really two things. If I had to choose one, I’d go for skills. You can always get more knowledge with the right learning skills.
Do you agree? What are your top 5?
