When you think about your future do you feel like it could only get worse?
That you've already maxed out all possibilities? All opportunities?
Or do you feel like it can only get better?
If you feel like it can only get worse, make sure you do everything you can to move towards the second category. Easier said than done. I know.
So how do you move towards that second category?
Well, there are many different ways. First, do you feel it will only get worse because your job or what you're doing today might not be needed anymore tomorrow? This is basically true for most of us. For you. For me. You boss. And your bosse's boss.
I guess we all have to realize that most of us won't get paid anymore for the things we're being paid for today. And once you realize and really understand this, then it's all about stepping up your game. About finding ways and creating things that no one else can create.
The sooner you try to figure this out, the better. Because it's going to take a hell lot of time. There's no blueprint to follow. No book to read. No how to guide.
At the end of the day it's all about putting yourself in a position where you can leverage tomorrow. Instead of trying to squeeze everything you can out of yesterday...
