Some people get to a passable level of performance and think that they've "arrived." Other people think that once they get to a certain level, they'll feel like they've arrived, but even once they get there, they don't.
News flash: You'll never arrive!
Just because you get a new label, whether that's high school graduate, a fancy "Dr." in front of your last name, a ring on your finger or a corner office doesn't mean that you can stop learning and stop expanding.
But it does mean that you need to stop what I call “demonstrating what you already know.”
A life lived at performance level is one of constant iteration and improvement--of always expanding your repertoire and adding new things to your resume.
I believe that the single best thing you can do to jumpstart or level-up your career is to seek out (and act upon!) the wisdom of a mentor--or, as I call them in my book, an acting coach.
I'm giving you a breakdown of how to expand your repertoire and find a great mentor in episode #29 of my podcast, as part of my Life at Performance Level series.
Tune in to hear:
- How to build on the strengths that you already have
- How to learn from your coworkers and gain new skills
- The right way to find the best mentor for you
- The key to creating your own path to success
- The story of my speaking mentor who changed the trajectory of my career
