"It is a huge jump in my career. The role and remuneration both move up 2X", Aahaana said with a lot of excitement.
She has been preparing hard for this move and landed up with a fantastic job offer.
Me: Well deserved!
Aa: Yes, this is so exciting, worth the wait.
Me: I am sure it is. Career is like any other investment. One needs to set goals, stay consistent with actions and be patient. It takes time, and it doesn't grow overnight!
Me: So what are the next courses you plan to pick along with the new role? What is next on your growth agenda?
Aa: I just finished one last year and got results. Why do I need more?
Me: Would this new role be the last role of your career?
Aa: Of course not.
Me: Do you follow any sports?
Aa: Yes, Cricket.
Me: So once a team wins a tournament, do they stop practising and improving?
Aa: No. Some rest is okay but not the pursuit. On the contrary, they push harder.
Me: So what next for you?
Aahaana is working on her next learning plan.
She will continue to focus on enhancing her learnability quotient.
Reaching a position is one thing;
Sustaining in it is second;
Growing further is the third thing.
All 3 needs focus and attention.
"What got you here won't get you there."
