The notion of self-promotion is often viewed negatively, for good reason. As one leader shared with me “self-promotion feels too much ‘all about me’ and maybe even unnecessary.” However, if you can find a natural way to get noticed, self-promotion can actually be a positive experience and help you manage your career.
Think of it, instead, as being the owner of your story.
If insanity is defined as “doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results” and you aspire to do great things at work, you should change things up.
We often see life as a flow of decisions because we are consciously and subconsciously making choices all the time. Constantly at a fork in the road. Go left, or go right. It is easy to feel bound by these “big decisions” and opt for inaction rather than doing something bold and creating your best choice.
