What with all the advancements in the businesses and technology, and intellectual and managerial evolution, this is probably the best advice anyone can give, especially to you, my dear reader. You, have just begun your journey into the world of business management, must pay special head to these words.
Now I am not saying that these are epiphany-inducing, head-nodding, eye-opening words. You may already know this, or have been told the same thing in many different ways, but it is particularly important given what you’re getting into now.
You see, the world of Business Management is a complicated arena. Policies and Strategies and trends and Innovations will vie for your attention, and you will be required to select the best solution among the myriad options. Together with this comes the all-important work-life balance, which must not be ignored if you don’t want to burn out by your mid-40s.
To tackle all of this the best thing to do is to keep reminding yourself of your end goal. Why are you doing, what are you doing? Once that’s clear in your mind, you’ll find your life – usually fraught with decision galore – becoming a lot easier!
If you’re one of the fortunate few who know where their career is heading, you have my Heartiest Congratulations friend. But you should still question yourself, along with everyone else. Once you get an idea of the field that suits you, you should conduct your own research – ask the ever-present Internet, talk to friends, family and peers, what have you. Because you should have the end in the mind.
To paraphrase Stephen Covey: You’ve made your start towards the world of management and competitions. Now is the time to figure out where you want to end up.
