Do’s and Don’ts 2

Take control of your own career. Do not

wait for things to happen to you but be

open to opportunities. Luck is simply

preparation meeting opportunity!

“The best way to predict the future is to

create it.” Peter Drucker

do s and don ts 3
Do’s and Don’ts 3

Consider yourself the first beneficiary of

your work. Consider it an exercise in

developing yourself.

Foster a “can do” attitude!

“Do what you can with what you have right where you are.” Teddy Roosevelt

“Unless a person undertakes more than they can possibly do, they will never do all they possibly can.”

Be willing to learn

from your mistakes!

“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.” Vince Lombardi

Don’t be afraid to be in the “discomfort

zone”, the risk zone, trying something

new, being more than you are now and

stretching yourself to new limits.

your work life and your

personal life.
