Why Smart Employees Refuse to Bet and Rely on Career Goals

Do you have career goals or personal development systems? How sharp are your learning skills? What learning strategies do you use?

As Alvin Toffler said, “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”  

There are career goals. And there are career development (PD) systems. They are not the same. Here’s why…

  • Setting career goals might get you a job, but creating a professional/personal growth-oriented system will give you a successful career—or make of you an irreplaceable asset.
  • Having an effective professional/personal development system enables underdogs like us to embark on a continuous improvement (CI) journey to get better day by day and week after week.
  • Building a PD system is a commitment to take small but consistent learning steps that lead to expertise and superior skills that are beyond the scope and reach of employee training.

Like they say, “Goals win games, but systems win championships.”
