A successful career is one that meets your needs and aligns with your life goals. When considering a job, focus on the actual day-to-day work rather than just the job title. Networking is crucial for finding opportunities and advancing in your career. Build relationships before making requests. Failure is an opportunity to learn and grow. Identify what went wrong and how to avoid repeating the same mistakes. In the face of technological advancements like AI, focus on developing innate human strengths and finding ways to add value.
