Careers Don’t Happen Overnight

I am a big hot tea drinker.  I love the sappy little quotes on the tea satchels. 

The quote today is, “from a small seed, a might trunk may grow”- Aeschylus.

What you are doing today might feel small.  It might not feel important.  Or  grand enough.  Maybe you are wondering how this job (that you feel over qualified/under appreciated/etc. etc) will play out long term in the bigger picture of your life. I’d like to take a moment to remind you that trees don’t grow over night. 

And careers don’t happen over night either. 

It’s the day in and day out grinding.  It’s showing up.  It’s being a team player.  Constantly learning.  Taking on new projects. 

  One of my favorite former colleagues started out as the administrative coordinator for our HR team.  She was green–fresh out of college– but had a can-do attitude and a love for learning.  Today, twelve years later, this friend is now the Director over the entire Talent team. 

  Life is a marathon not a sprint. #keepgrinding
