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
