Performance is Your Career Engine

Video: Performance is Your Career Engine – 2 min

The best predictor of future performance is past performance. That means if we want a better opportunity, we need to perform consistently in our current role first. Without consistent performance, your career will stall out and eventually break down.
People who manage their careers well see their performance as a spring board to future opportunities. If they do well in their current role, they’ll have many more options for future assignments.
Even if you are in a role that is a poor fit, we should strive to perform the basic requirements consistently because it is very difficult to parlay poor performance into a better opportunity.
Key Takeaway: Consistent performance is a prerequisite for future opportunity.
