Here are the top 22 most important life lessons I’ve learned in my career.
- No one doesn’t really care about you.
- Nobody is your friend.
- Find a healthy competitor, not a friend, so that you can grow.
- Learn to say no, maximum fail here.
- Build your knowledge, companies will follow you.
- 80% of people just work for promotions.
- Don’t be that person in a team, who is always available.
- Learn to leave the meeting if you are not contributing.
- Don’t check & reply to emails in the first 1 hour of your day.
- If it’s really urgent, a person will call you.
- Don’t believe in a verbal promise (99.99- FALSE).
- Take everything in writing.
- Ask for feedback if you are not getting it.
- Set up 1-1 with your boss, don’t wait for him.
- Ask questions, no question is stupid.
- Discuss in year-end review fairly.
- Don’t accept any change before the release date in prod.
- You made a big change & raised PR everything looks good but only a few team members know about this, bad move, and in such cases communicate effectively to all team members, and they will respect you more.
- Few leaders actually save you in appraisals discussion.
- Appraisals are never fair, it’s fact, so don’t work for it.
- Don’t forget, you have a life outside the office.
- Elevator pitch, learn this skill.
That’s it for today, Hope this helps you.
