I am talking about the specialist who is fully booked for the next three weeks, the expert who charges more than five times his colleagues and still always get contracts, the guy in your office or industry who always gets opportunities and promotions. Yet year in year out some people are still stuck at seeking clients, negotiating even basic charges and fighting the supervisor who is blocking opportunities.
I have learnt over time that the people who stand out did not just wake up there some day. They at some point had to visualise the heights they wanted to soar to and also developed a clear plan of what it would take to get there and work the plan relentlessly.
Do you have any idea where you want to be in the next five years. Or you just leaving that to chance?
