Here are Arbess’s top 5 pearls of wisdom for accelerating your career.
- Read Change Your Thinking by Sarah Edelman – This book was an eye opener for me as a technical engineer as it helped me ‘round-off’ those sharp edges and encouraged me to focus on my goals better.
- Build your professional and personal network as early as you can. I can’t count the number of times people in my network have helped me think through a tough situation – they are my angels.
- Embrace failures in your career. This is not a perfect strategy but WHEN the failures knock on your door, be nice and welcome them in. Learning from my failures have only made me wiser and more creative.
- Education. Education. Education. Be it academic, vocational or other, keep learning and exercise those brain muscles.
- Be proud of your successes and who you are, but also be humble and selfless – the universe will thank you for it.
