How To Build A Career Progression Plan.

A career progression plan is your roadmap to where you want to get to professionally. It is the simple steps you plan to take to get where you want to be.

Think of career progression as a goal. The steps to take to achieve that goal are:

  • Identify the career you want.
  • Understand the skills/experience/qualifications/strengths you need to succeed.
  • Identify the skills etc.. you already have, and those you need to develop.
  • Set out how, where and when you will achieve these skills.




7 Rules of Success
  • Do what you love. Passion is everything.
  • Put a dent in the universe. Jobs believed in the power of vision. Don't lose sight of the big vision.
  • Make connections.  People with a broad set of life experiences can often see things that others miss. Connect ideas from different fields.
  • Say no to 1,000 things. Say no to quantity, and focus on the quality of your best products.
  • Create insanely different experiences. The motive is to enrich lives, not just to move products.
  • Master the message.  Instead of simply delivering a presentation, inform, educate, inspire and entertain.
  • Sell dreams, not products.  Customers don't care about your product. They care about themselves. If you help your customers reach their dreams, you'll win them over.




Organize Your Calender Like A Pro

Protect your productive time. Book that time out of your diary. Ideally you want two hours to make a real difference to your to do list so block book it every day. This will be your time every day to focus on the tasks that matter to you.

Book the last 30 minutes of every day out so you can catch up on late emails and plan tomorrow.

At the start of your day review what is in your calendar. Do you know what all of the meetings are about?

Don’t be afraid to decline meetings.
