Break Out of a Rut and Move Ahead

Opportunities abound for people who want to move ahead at work. Are you taking advantage of them? If you are tired of staying in the same place while others around you advance, make these strategies a part of your success plan:

  • Aim higher. Exceed expectations: Dress for the role you want, not the one you have. Do more than your job description requires.
  • Act instead of watching. Move off the sidelines when you see a colleague struggling or you see a way to do something better.
  • Put the organization first. Gain new perspective by thinking always about the organization’s best interests. Forget about your pay grade. You can have a professional demeanor and still be willing to roll up your sleeves and do whatever must be done.
  • Focus on priorities. Each day, list five must-do items that link directly to your performance objectives. Share your accomplishments with your boss at least once each quarter.
