It takes more than dedication to grow your career. ‘SKILL’ is crucial. ☝
Now, acquiring a skill doesn’t mean you are skilled on that field. Being skilled on that field should become your target. “If the Ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed, but skill will bring success ” (Holy Bible).
God says skill, not just dedication. If you will have to chop wood, you’ll do better job by sharpening your Ax first.
The point is Work Smarter, Not Harder.
Take time to learn the skills you need, you will save time in the long run and be far more successful.
Never rush learning. It’s a pity these days that many people do not spend as much time as they should learning and developing themselves. Every one seems to be in a hurry to be called CEOs, but how many of them are truly unique and outstanding enough to be called CEO. ?
What are you executing? How solid is your root?, your base and your background? Do not be all about the titles and positions and names. Be a representative of what you claim to be representing.
Sharpen your own Ax by reading wide , attend seminars, conferences, and always observe working models. Sadly, how many in this category have working and real models they look up to and tag? If you think you are the best, then that’s exactly where the problem is. No one knows it all.
You are never wasting your time when you are sharpening your Ax.
Have a fulfilling week. .
