Your most valuable business asset
Let's just be real here.
You cannot sustain a high energy job if you are not mentally or physically capable of providing the high energy it needs. Furthermore, you can't sustain the job if you are UNWILLING to DO THE WORK. Even if you have the high energy.
Be brutally honest with yourself. The most valuable business asset today is flexibility. And if you are not flexible and you refuse to become flexible, then you will severely limit your future employment opportunities.
No company cares how good you were last year, much less 5 years ago. And seniority? Well it died a decade ago. I cannot tell you how many examples I see of tenured, highly skilled team members that I see in my conferences throughout the nation that have simply become IRRELEVANT & totally REPLACEABLE. Mainly because they were INFLEXIBLE. Just closed to the more innovative ways that business now works.
"If a snake cannot shed its skin, it will die!"
Peace, love and Gumbo!
