Have you met people who seem to always be in the right place at the right time in their careers? They start with early successes, build a strong reputation, and then gracefully leap from one great opportunity to the next.
The key to being in the right place at the right time in your career, is to leave the wrong place at the right time.
Have you ever wondered how do they do that?
Successful people have learned that it’s easier to swim downstream than upstream. All jobs have challenges, all jobs have rough patches. But when forces out of your control are conspiring against you being able to do your best work … it’s time to go. As business guru W. Edwards Deming said , “A bad system will beat a good person every time.”
People who have built successful careers know how to find work environments that encourage high performance, and have the courage to leave work environments that make doing your best work impossible.
When you find yourself fighting the current, and working hard only to make minimal progress, it may be time for a change:
We are all influenced by the people around us. Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping said, “In a bad system even a good man will do evil things, in a good system even a bad man will do good.”
If you want real career success, find the work environment that inspires your best work.
