Is This Your #1 Career Mistake?

We have a friend who’s done it all–printed banners, sold funeral caskets, hawked collectibles, opened a clothing store, and started multiple other business ventures. Every time we see him, he’s doing something different to earn money. It brings to mind the phrase, “Jack of all trades, master of none,” to which I can easily relate. Can you?

Capable people gain a reputation as “go to” people. They become “good old [insert name] who is always there when you need him.” There is lots right with this, unless or until…we end up doing lots of projects well but are distracted from what would otherwise be our highest point of contribution. Then, both the company and the employee lose out.

Are you doing what you love to do? Do you need to be more deliberate and discerning in navigating your own career? Read this thought-provoking article to help you align your actions more closely with your highest point of contribution.
